Schalke 04 vs Borussia Monchengldbach
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: VELTINS-Arena (Gelsenkirchen).
Borussia’s form has seen quite a few stumbling blocks so far in the season, which is why they will hardly earn the right to play the European football next year. The Foals sit four points short of the sixth-placed RB Leipzig at the moment and they are desperate for result here in Gelsenkirchen in order to keep the hopes of making it count alive.
That’s obviously much easier said than done given that Schalke 04 rarely drop points in their own backyard. To be precise, Die Konigsblauen won all of last four home matches in Bundesliga, a streak which climbed them up to the second place in the league ladder.
The hosts are seven points clear of Hoffenheim in fifth and only a miracle could prevent them from listening to the Champions League anthem next term at VELTINS-Arena. They have to be regarded as favourites here in spite of disappointing results in last two matches overall (the loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal semifinal and the 2-2 draw away at the rock-bottomed Koln just days after).
Schalke 04 vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
Borussia Monchengladbach ere the more successful outfit over the history, but most of their wins came at Stadion in BORUSSIA-Park.
Schalke were way better in clashes in Gelsenkirchen where they won 20 and lots just 9 of 45 against Gladbach.
Both teams scored in each of last four head to head affairs.
Schalke 04 vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
Gladbach will come into the game in high spirits after beating Wolfsburg 3-0 at home last weekend. Dieter Hecking’s men offered a strong attacking performance with goals from Lars Stindl, Raffael and Christoph Kramer. However, they failed to produce on travels this season. To be more precise, they scored just two goals in last six away games in Bundesliga.
Given that Schalke have been much more consistent throughout the season, particularly in front of the home fans, we can hardly go past the home win at 1.90. Alternatively, you can try with goals at both ends as the Foals bagged three last time out against Wolfsburg, while Schalke shipped two to Koln.
