Bayern Munich vs Schalke Betting Tips
Bayern are hopeful they can close the gap between them and the Bundesliga table leaders RB Leipzig. The current points difference is 4 points and considering that the table leaders are in a fantastic form, Bayern have no other option but to go for a win over Schalke on Saturday.
Even if they weren’t trying to get to the top of the table, Bayern would probably still aim for a win in this game. They are playing at home, where they’ve always been superb. This season, Bayern have won 19 points in 9 home matches, which isn’t ideal, but they still have plenty of time to improve their home winning percentage.
This season, Bayern have lost two Bundesliga games namely against Byer Leverkusen and Hoffenheim. They also drew one home game in the 2019-20 season, playing 2:2 with Hertha Berlin.
When they played against Schalke in the first part of the season, they won 3:0. That match was played in Gelsenkirchen, but Bayern had scored 3 goals as well in the previous duel with Schalke that was played at the Allianz Arena. The score in that game was 3:1 for the Bavarian team.
Both teams have started the year 2020 with wins. Schalke won against Borussia Monchengladbach by 2:0, while Bayern Munich thrashed Hertha in Berlin by 4:0. That performance is certainly giving them a lot of confidence ahead of the Schalke game. It’s made them optimistic about their title chances.
Bayern Munich players are very motivated to win this match and it’s not just for points. It’s also to keep their good form going as the clash with RB Leipzig is approaching. The two main title contenders are playing one another on the 9th day of February.
Schalke are also very eager to keep on playing well and grabbing points. The problem is that Bayern Munich is just a much, much better team. Still, Schalke are very good in defense, so scoring against them might not be as easy as planned. With 21 goals conceded, they are sharing the top spot in the list of best defensive teams in Bundesliga.
