Schalke v Borussia Dortmund predictions and football betting tips for Sunday’s Bundesliga fixture with the best odds for our tipsters’ three bets.
Borussia Dortmund will travel away to Schalke this Sunday with their reverse leg against Liverpool in the back of their minds. Kick-off is scheduled for 14:30 this Sunday as both teams will try to pick up points in the league.
Dortmund were expected roll Liverpool over in midweek but Klopp’s new side came back to his old ground and his Liverpool side put in a performance that restricted this Dortmund side and leaves them with a lot to do in the away leg. In the league Dortmund will continue to chase down Bayern and this game is a chance to take another few points. They have won the last three games away in the league but the boss will have Anfield in the back of his mind going into this game.
Schalke are still pushing for a top three finish, it is not impossible giving the state of the league at the minute. They have won five of their last seven league games at home and unlike their opponents they have had over a week to rest and prepare for this game. At home they haven’t been too bad when you look at their form they are definitely not a team anyone would want to travel too.
Dortmund now have to decide what is more important, going to Anfield where Liverpool can host one of their famous European games and pull off a result or continue to hunt down points in the Bundesliga in the hope Bayern slip up. Dortmund are solid the league, away and at home, but Schalke boast an impressive home record and will lie down here, I think with all elements considered for both teams here a draw is a likely result, the best odds for my first Schalke v Borussia Dortmund betting tip is 3/1 with Bet365.
Only one of the last seven fixtures has featured a 0-0 score line, the other six of those games have had over 2.5 goals scored in. Five out of those fixtures have had BTTS, this on stats alone suggest a game that could have goals in. In the last few games Dortmund have struggled to score away from home, although they have an impressive goal record this year Aubameyang was brought off midweek and mat be relied upon in the return leg. For my second Schalke v Borussia Dotmund betting tip I think that under 2.5 goals in this game at 13/10 with Coral is a good option as both teams have different outcomes on their mind.
I would like to go for a big first goal scorer tip here, but with the Europa league on Dortmund’s minds I cannot be sure which team they will line up with. Instead I have to look at the past head to head fixtures for both of these and this definitely suggests that both teams will score. I believe that as five of the seven last fixtures has involved both teams scoring that it is highly likely it will happen again. The odds may be a little short but at 8/13 with Stan James this is surely something you can rely on.
Draw – best odds 3/1 with bet365.
Under 2.5 goals – best odds 13/10 with Coral.
Both teams to score – best odds 8/13 with Stan James.
