The fans of the Bundesliga can breathe a sigh of relief, finally football is rolling again in Germany.
After the compulsory break there is a real classic, the revier derby between Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke 04.
The game of the 26th Bundesliga match day takes place 63 days late. On this page we provide you with all betting-relevant numbers and statistics that you need for the optimal betting tip forecast.
BVB won 7 of the last 8 games before the break, the Royal Blues could not score in the recent 4 away games.
According to the bookmakers’ expert opinion, the home elf is clearly favored, although the black and yellow won only one of 8 direct encounters with the arch rival and the youngest 3 home duels could not win.
On Saturday, May 16, 2020, at 3:30 p.m., the best home team of the Bundesliga will receive the tenth of the away table in the Dortmund Westphalia Stadium.
Borussia Dortmund was in an impressive form before the forced break.
The black and yellow won 7 of the last 8 games in the Bundesliga and made themselves the first Bayern hunter in the battle for the championship title. The team of coach Lucien Favre won the last 4 Bundesliga games in succession against Frankfurt, Bremen, Freiburg and Gladbach. After 25 championship games, the club holds 15 wins and 6 draws in 4 losses.
This puts the Borussia in 2nd place in the table, 5 points behind FC Bayern. In the home game against Schalke, Dortmund is so much in the role of the favorite that the bookies only call out odds of 1.50 for the home win.
BVB could only win one of the last 8 clashes with 5 draws and 2 defeats and could not win the most recent 3 home duels with 2 draws and 1 defeat.
Borussia Dortmund is a real home power this season. The team did not have to give up any of the 13 home games, taking 9 wins and 3 draws, making it the best home team in the Bundesliga. The youngest 4 home games in the league could be decided for themselves and is therefore also programmed for victory in the derby against Schalke.
The Favre team had already been at break for the last 4 home games, which is a risk tip in this match.
The Borussia score an average of 3.42 goals per home game with only 0.83 goals. In 58% of the home games the team can keep the zero, which also leads to 58% home wins without conceding a goal. In 58% of BVB home games not both teams hit.
In the last 3 home games Dortmund have not conceded a goal.
In three quarters of the home games more than 3.5 goals can be seen, in the half even more than 4.5 and thus a goal-winning game can be predicted.
FC Schalke 04
Could FC Schalke 04 take advantage of the long break? The miners had a weak break and should rehabilitate with the restart.
The team of coach David Wagner could not win the last 7 games of the Bundesliga with 4 draws and 3 defeats. So our prediction is not in the form of annoying BVB in the Revierderby. After an exceptionally good autumn, the Royal Blues won 9 wins and 10 draws in 6 defeats from the first 25 championship games, making the club currently 6th in the European Cup, 14 points behind the next opponent.
In the guest appearance in Dortmund, Schalke is in the role of the clear outsider at a rate of around 7.00.
If there are surprising points from the underdog, you will still take betting odds of around 2.75 with the Double Chance X / 2.
The Gelsenkirchener won 3 of the last 10 away matches, with 3 BVB successes and 4 draws.
In 6 of the last 10 clashes and in 5 of the last 7 encounters in Dortmund, more than 2.5 goals were scored.
Schalke could not win the last 6 away games of the Bundesliga with 3 draws and defeats and could not even score in the last 4 guest appearances. The balance of the first 12 away games of this season is positive with 4 wins, a draw and a defeat. This puts the club in mid-range rank 10 in the away table.
The Wagner team scored an average of 1.25 goals per away game and conceded 1.50 goals.
In half of the guest appearances the Schalke could not hit and therefore every 4th away game of this season had to be given up to zero. 58% of the S04 away games score more than 2.5 goals.
Football Prediction of the Day Borussia Dortmund vs FC Schalke 04
Derbies have their own laws, they say.
In times like these, this applies even more than usual when the Bundesliga has to play in front of empty ranks.
Nevertheless, we expect a BVB home win.
Risk takers can also allude to the half-time leadership of the home side.
Another “risk tip” is zero home win.
Our betting tip prediction: over 2.5 goals in the whole game.
