Bayern Munich vs Schalke 04
Date: Friday, 18 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena.
The Bavarians are easily the hottest team in the world of football at the moment, and they are fresh off a treble-winning season. For sure they are targeting to defend all their titles, and will hope to carry over the momentum they have built in the last several months.
In 2019-20, they had made things a little tough for themselves after dropping several points early in their campaign. They certainly will try to avoid that this time around.
Dieter Flick’s men are opening against the Miners, who were one of the weakest teams in the whole German top flight the last season. Not only did they finish in the bottom tier of the table, but they also had avoided relegation by a narrow margin.
And to further pile on, the Bavarians also have a terrific h2h record against this opponent over the years.
By all means, expect a comfortable win for Bayern Munich this Friday.
Bayern Munich vs Schalke: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Flick’s men are on an eight-match winning run against this opponent.
- They have conceded a total of three goals from the former eleven encounters.
- The last time these two locked horns at this venue, the hosts recorded a 5-0 win.
- It’s been nine years since the guests last won at this stadium.
Bayern Munich vs Schalke 04: Prediction
The Bavarians are on a 22-game winning run at the moment, and this stretch of victories helped them to their second even treble in their proud history.
Robert Lewandowski, who was the top-scorer in whichever club competition he took part in 2019-20, would really be frustrated that he missed out on the Ballon d’Or, since it was cancelled. He really will be back with a vengeance this time around, and will make a pass at the missed Golden Boot as well.
Meanwhile, the Miners were winless in 20 of their preceding 23 games, and their latest win on the road had come back in November of 2019.
Going on, Flick’s men also do have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival in the past decades, and especially so at this venue.
In fact, they had won 5-0 at this ground the last time these two locked horns, and are unbeaten in such fixtures since 2011.
Considering these stats, expect a Bayern Munich win this Friday.
