Bayern also got off to a fine and a rather easy start to the new Champions League campaign beating Benfica 0-2 on Wednesday evening away at Estadio da Luz. Robert Lewandowski broke the deadlock early on, while Renato Sanches took the most from the opportunity Niko Kovac gave him at the start of the continental competition. The Portuguese midfielder completed an overall high-quality display by scoring Bayern’s second goal of the evening early in the second half.

Schalke vs Bayern Munich Prediction

Schalke are one of two biggest disappointments after three rounds of the new Bundesliga season. They are yet to pick up the maiden point in the competition. Domenico Tedesco’s job is rumoured to be on the line and Bayern’s visit comes at the worst possible moment for the German manager.

Die Koenigsblau began the Champions League campaign with a 1-1 draw to Porto at home on Tuesday. It’s thus three losses and a draw for Tedesco and his troops in last four games across competitions.

A bitterly disappointing record which will likely be even worse after this Bayern tie we’d say. The visitors are just enormous favourites to keep the scintillating form going and maintain the perfect record against the rock-bottomed outfit.

We expect the Bavarians to be in complete control from the very get go and we’ll back them to have the lead at the break and win the match at the end at 1.95 odds as the main betting option here.
