Dortmund vs Schalke – Bundesliga : We will have a derby on this 13th round of the 2017-2018 edition of the Bundesliga…
Borussia Dortmund hosts Schalke 04 at the Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund). The yellow are trying to put an end to their poor streak, while the blue are trying to maintain their good moment of form.
Borussia Dortmund’s moment of form this season is very unpleasant. With the Champions League and the Bundesliga matches,
the team hasn’t won on their last 8 matches. The last negative result was a 2-1 loss to Tottenham at home, in the Champions League, where they lost after leading 1-0.
In the Bundesliga, their last match finished with a 2-1 loss to Stuttgart away from home.
After a very good start where they were leading the Bundesliga, the team ended up dropping and now they occupy the 5th place with 20 points, having scored 29 goals and conceded 16 so far, and sitting 9 points behind leaders Bayern.
The manager Peter Bosz, who is being heavily criticized, has practically the entirety of the roster at his disposal for this match.
If their rival’s moment of form is poor, the team from Gelsenkirchen is on a great moment of form, since they haven’t lost for 6 straight games in the Bundesliga. Their last match was against Hamburger SV and the team lost 2-0.
In the league table, they occupy the 2nd place with 23 points, having scored 16 goals and conceded 10 so far.
Their big objective is qualifying for the Champions League again and that seems viable, considering the good football they have presented up until this point.
The manager Domenico Tedesco seems not to have any major problems affecting the team at the moment.
Dortmund vs Schalke – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This promises to be a very good match to watch, since besides balanced, it should be a very open and hasty one.
Dortmund will try to go for the win from the 1st minute.
No one doubts their offensive capabilities, however, that playing style has been giving a lot of space for their opponents to explore, so they have been conceding a lot of goals lately.
Schalke has the ability they have, so they should try to take advantage of those spaces to get the win, because they are a team that is very confident at the moment.
Since it is very difficult to risk on any outcome, I see some value on this Both teams to score bet.
