Bayern Munich – Schalke 04

The champion Bayern Munich kicks off the new Bundesliga season on Friday. The Bavarians will host Schalke 04 at the Allianz Arena in a match from the first round. Let’s preview it in these football prediction betting tips today.

Bayern Munich are fearsome at the moment. At the end of the last season they won the treble for a second time, winning the Bundesliga, the Champions League and the DFB Pokal. Right now they are probably the best team in the world and the usual number one contender for the Bundesliga.

Leroy Sane is the big signing Bayern Munich did during the summer. The Bavarians paid 45 million euro to Manchester City for the winger who’s just 24-years old. The fans now expect to see Sane being a real menace to the opposition’s defenses. He’s quick, sharp and a terrific dribbler, so Bayern Munich really got a gem in their hands. At the same time the club said goodbye to Coutinho, Ivan Perisic and Alvaro Odriozola who were loaned for the previous season.

Schalke 04 begin their second season under the management of David Wagner. The Royal Blues made a surprising move on the transfer market when they decided to sign the 36-years old striker Vedad Ibisevic. The Bosnian veteran will sign with Schalke on a free transfer. At the same time the club loaned Eintracht Frankfurt’s striker Goncalo Paciencia until the end of the season.

Just as we expected, Alexander Nubel moved to Bayern Munich on a free transfer. Could he become the new Manuel Neuer? We shall wait and see. Meanwhile the talented American midfielder Weston McKennie moved to the Italian champions Juventus.

In our football prediction betting tips today we expect to see why Bayern Munich are regarded as red hot favourites for this match. How we said – they are probably the best team in the world right now. For Schalke 04 it’s going to be a really tough night in Munich.
