Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction and Betting Preview, 26 Oct 2019

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-0
Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund PredictionSchalke vs Dortmund Prediction and Preview for Saturday's Bundesliga fixture. The Royal Blues will entertain the Black and Yellows in a much anticipated Revierderby at the Veltins-Arena on Saturday afternoon. The two teams are separated by just a point in the Bundesliga title race, with the visitors above the hosts.
Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 9
Venue: Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen)
FC Schalke come into this fixture very cautiously as they consider it one of their biggest home fixtures this season. They are on a relatively good home run so far, having lost only once, to Bayern Munich, and in one of only two occasions, they have failed to score at home. Amine Harit is their top scorer this season with four goals and the Royal Blues will be looking up to their marksman to continue his goal-scoring exploits if they are to secure points in this game.

Eyes will also be upon Daniel Caligiuri, who has been involved in six goals in his last four Revierderby outings, hitting the back of the net four times and setting up twice. Schalke ought to take advantage of their fresher legs too in this fixture since Dortmund were involved in midweek football, which they lost.

Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, come into this game at the back of a 2-0 away loss at Inter Milan in the Champions League. Lucien Favre’s men will, however, be looking to bounce back to winning ways, having registered an unbeaten run in the last five Bundesliga games.

Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho will both be looking forward to being called upon in this fixture having missed the last outing at home to Borussia Monchengladbach. The former, who is their current top scorer this season, had been ruled out with an Achilles injury while Sancho was left out of the action. Both will therefore be aiming to add to their goal tallies and possibly propel their side to the top of the table.

Borussia Dortmund’s striker Paco Alcacer could return from injury having missed the last two Bundesliga games, while Sancho could also be included in the starting line up on Saturday. Their ex-skipper, Marcel Schmelzer could be the only player sitting this one out with injury.

FC Schalke have no injury concerns and are expected to be eagerly awaiting the fixture.

Schalke vs Dortmund Predictions

Schalke are on the back of a good run and their home advantage gives them the upper hand in this match. Should they bank on Dortmund’s bruised form then they should manage at least a point from this fixture. Dortmund are still a force to reckon with and therefore this game could as well be another win or another unbeaten game for them in the league.
