Bayern Munich – Schalke 04
The champion Bayern Munich will try to reduce the gap to the leader when they face Schalke 04 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. The Bavarians are currently four points behind RB Leipzig in the standings, so they will hope that the leader will make a mistake in Frankfurt against Eintracht. These are our football prediction tips for this fixture in Munich.
Bayern Munich had a moment of poor form, but they quickly overcame the difficulties and now they are enjoying a strong run of four consecutive wins in the Bundesliga. Bayern are second in the league with 36 points, but the title race is far from over. The Bavarians will fight for the crown until the very end.
Last week Hans-Dieter Flick’s team showed its true strenght. Bayern Munich had a trip to the capital Berlin, where they faced Jurgen Klinsmann’s Hertha BSC and crushed the Old Lady with 4-0. Four different players scored the goals for the visitors – Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, Thiago Alcantara and Ivan Perisic.
During the week there were some reports in the press that Bayern Munich do not plan to sign Phillippe Coutinho and Ivan Perisic when their loans from Barcelona and Inter Milan end. It’d be curious to see if Hans-Dieter Flick is going to continue to trust them.
Schalke 04 are a much better team now with David Wagner than they were last season. The Royal Blues are fighting once again for a Champions League spot, currently being 5th in the league with 33 points. Schalke are unbeaten in their last four games in the league in which they won twice and made two draws.
In our football prediction tips we believe that Bayern Munich are aware that they should not make any mistakes right now, being second in the Bundesliga. Schalke 04 will fight for at least a point at the Allianz Arena, but it’s always hard at this stadium.
