Bayern – Schalke 04, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BAYERN - SCHALKE
Bayern turned very badly against Leverkusen and during the week they had to go over 120 minutes against Hertha for the Cup to continue. Obviously, this match is very important for the Bavarians, as in the next round they are visiting Augsburg before the big match at Anfield against Liverpool in the Champions League. Bayern is in good shape in principle, but after the break they do not play so well, although they score a lot of goals.
Schalke again showed hesitations and cracked into a game against Gladbach at home, when they lost 0-2 in the last round. Miners stay relatively far from the danger zone at 7 points, but they are far beyond the top spots. It will be important for them to play well from here until the end of the Bundesliga season and to get as far as possible in the other 2 tournaments in which they participate, although they are unlikely to have a chance against City in UCL.
Bayern has often defeated Schalke over the years, as in 4 of the last 7 home games of Bayern Munich against Miners, we have seen 3-goal wins for Bavarians. In addition, Schalke had not had such a bad season soon, because they are really weak now. They have only 2 wins as a guest and can not say that they have a lot of motivation, while Bayern are obliged to win and we think they will score a few goals against the guests. Prediction – Bayern to score in both halves at 1.63
- Bayern scored in both halves in 5 of their last 6 home games in all competitions
