Schalke vs Dortmund – Following their 0-2 Bundesliga 1 victory over VfL Bochum, Schalke will be aiming for a repetition of that performance.

In that contest, Schalke had 37% of the possession and 4 of its 10 attempts on goal were successful. Marius Bülter (79′) was the lone performer for Schalke to register a goal.

Bochum made 7 shots at goal, four of which were successful. VfL Bochum’s own goal was made by Manuel Riemann (45′). Recent games involving Schalke have been rather unimpressive, with a dearth of goals being a recurring feature.

Over their last six meetings, they and their opponents have combined for just 5 goals, scoring 0.83 goals per match on average. We’ll shortly find out if that pattern holds true for this site.

According to their past performances, Schalke has lost all five of their previous league games to Borussia Dortmund. In their last three league home games, they have not lost.

Borussia Dortmund will be looking to right the wrongs from their Champions League loss at the hands of Chelsea in their most recent match.

Borussia Dortmund had 61% of the control in that game and 4 of its 13 shots on goal were successful. Chelsea, on the other hand, had 13 shots on goal, with 4 of them going in. For Chelsea, goals were made by Raheem Sterling (43′) and Kai Havertz (53′).

The Borussia Dortmund defense has put on a string of tenacious performances as a result of which they have conceded 4 goals overall from their previous 6 matches. Their own attack squad has scored 10 during that same time frame.

Borussia Dortmund hasn’t lost to Schalke in any of their previous three league games when playing them away from home, according to their prior performances. They haven’t lost in any of their prior four league away games.

Schalke vs Dortmund– Betting Analysis

Looking at their most recent head-to-head matches, which date back to April 27, 2019, Schalke has won 1, Borussia Dortmund 4, and there have been 1 draws.

During those matches, the two teams combined for 18 goals, with 4 coming from Schalke and 14 from Dortmund. This results in an average of three goals being scored per contest.

The teams’ most recent league encounter took place on Bundesliga 1 Match Day 7 on September 17, 2022, with Borussia Dortmund defeating Schalke 1-0.

Borussia Dortmund had 67% of the possession that day and 5 out of 17 shot efforts were successful. Youssoufa Moukoko was their lone scorer (79′). Schalke had 3 shots on goal, but none were successful. Felix Brych served as the judge for the game.

Cédric Brunner (Nasal Bone Fracture), Sepp van den Berg (Torn Ankle Ligament), Soichiro Kozuki (Ankle Injury), Thomas Ouwejan (Adductor problems), Jere Uronen (Adductor problems), Dominick Drexler (Muscle Injury), Justin Heekeren (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Tim Skarke (Bruised Foot) and Sebastian Polter (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will not be taking part for Schalke manager Thomas Reis.

Borussia Dortmund manager Edin Terzi is forced to select a team with a limited roster. Mateu Morey Bauzà (Fitness), Julien Duranville (Muscle Partial Avulsion), Karim Adeyemi (Torn Muscle Fiber), and Youssoufa Moukoko (Ruptured Syndesmotic Ligament) are the ones who are left out of this list.

We believe it will be challenging for Schalke to score against this Borussia Dortmund squad, which we believe will perform well enough to score at the other end and take the lead.
