Schalke 04 vs Bayern Munich Match Prediction

By William Hall

3rd place Schalke welcome 2nd Bayern Munich to the Veltins Arena on the 19th of September in the Bundesliga as the two look to go top for at least a day with Hannover not playing until Wednesday. It has been a great start for Schalke, picking up nine points from a possible twelve. They go into this game off the back of a 2-1 away win to struggling Werder Bremen which saw Schalke come from a goal behind to gain maximum points. Bayern Munich have the same number of points as this week's opponents after losing just one game to Hoffenheim. Munich smashed Mainz in their last game 4-0 to put them in the perfect mood to play high-flying Schalke. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Although this tends to be one of Bayern Munich's toughest games of the season, they haven't been beaten by Schalke in 14 attempts, even though a lot of the games have ended as draws. When Bayern travel away to Schalke, they tend to do well, winning six of there last seven visits to the Veltins Arena. It shows it is going to be a tough evening for Schalke, but with the good form they are currently in, there is no reason why they can't go out and pick up at least a point. Nabil Bentaleb has been one of Schalke's bigger threats this season. The former Tottenham midfielder has been causing defences in Germany as sorts of problems, scoring twice already this season.

When you look at Bayern Munich's attacking threats, it is hard to see how they don't win every game in the Bundesliga. Robert Lewandowski is arguably the biggest name in the squad, and he has already bagged five this campaign. Each season he is up their with the top scorers in the league and all around Europe, doing the job in the Bundesliga and Champions League. If he is on it this week, Schalke will struggle.

Schalke 04 Preview

As mentioned, it has been a great start for Schalke, making almost the perfect start to this years Bundesliga campaign. A lot of character was shown in the sides last game which saw them come from a goal behind to see of Werder Bremen away from home. A 20th-minute goal from Werder made it an uphill challenge for the away side, but it didn't take long for Schalke to get themselves back into the game with Werder centre-half Velikovic putting the ball in his net which lifted the away team. Although Schalke were dominating the game, it took until the 83rd minute for them to finally find the back of the net with Goretzka the hero. This made it back to back wins for Domenico Tedesco's men, rounding off an excellent start to the season.

Schalke 04 Team News

Schalke are potensially without just one this weekend with Donis Avdijaj out with an ankle injury. However, the player is back in training but this one may come too soon.

Bayern Munich Preview

Bayern Munich have been dominating the Bundesliga for many years, and it seems they will do the same for years to come. Bar the sides blip away at Hoffenheim; they have looked imposing, winning their games by more than one goal in all three games. It was the last game that showed that they are at their best, smashing Mainz 4-0 at home. It only took 11 minutes for the home team to take the lead with Thomas Muller smashing home, just 13 minutes later Arjen Robben took advantage of a defensive mix-up to make it 2-0. A second-half double from Robert Lewandowski wrapped the game up for Bayern. More results like this will come to Munich this season with the quality the side holds. If they are at their best this weekend, they should be able to bag maximum points.

Bayern Munich Team News

Bayern Munich will have two missing this week with David Alaba (knee injury) and Juan Bernat (ankle injury) both out for atleast another week or so.
