Borussia Dortmund vs FC Schalke 04 Picks
Emre Can and Axel Witsel were forced to train and suffered muscle problems, leaving the camp. The star Marco Reus had a muscle rupture since February, Dan-Axel Zagadou has not yet healed his knee, so the technician Lucien Favre has big batch problems. The guests can’t count on Ozan Kabak, they have two more uncertain players, but compared to the hosts, they have no team problems. Borussia Dortmund has the second attack in the German championship, after the leader Bayern Munich, scoring 68 goals in 25 stages and is the leader in a ranking of home matches, where it is undefeated. FC Schalke 04 is the team with the most draws in the Bundesliga and will definitely try a draw in Saturday’s match.
Before the coronavirus epidemic, the hosts would have been favorites, because they were in top form and with the support of 80,000 fans, they would probably have won. Both BVB and S04 played their last official match in the Bundesliga 2 months and 9 days ago. The players trained at home as best they could and could not be physically at a high level. Now it will be difficult to play, because during the whole quarantine period they did not play even a friendly match. So, the value level has been balanced and FC Schalke 04 has an opportunity to leave Dortmund with a point or points. I recommend you bet that the group in Gelsenkirchen will not lose at the Signal Iduna Park stadium.
