Borussia Monchengladbach vs Schalke 04 match preview for the Bundesliga fixture, written by experienced sports betting expert.
Saturday’s Bundesliga action features an exciting clash between Borussia Monchengladbach and Schalke 04. For most of last season, Gladbach was standing on the fourth place, but at the end had to settle for the fifth spot and a Europa League qualification. Dieter Hecking left the club, and RB Salzburg’s coach Marco Rose will debut for Gladbach. Many expect that Marco Rose will improve its side, but he will have a tough time since the club’s best player Thorgan Hazard was sold to Borussia Dortmund.
Schalke 04 had a poor season, and they will want to forget it as soon as possible. Still, Schalke’s performance was not that bad, but they were unfortunate in crucial moments. ‘The Miners’ also appointed a new coach in the summer. Huddersfield’s ex-manager David Wagner will have to improve his side in attack, since under Domenico Tedesco, Schalke struggled to create goal-scoring opportunities.
I expect an even low-scoring game on Saturday. Thorgan Hazard was a key player for Borussia Monchengladbach, and his transfer undoubtfully turns Gladbach into a less dangerous team. Borussia Monchengladbach signed Breel Embolo and Marcus Thuram in the summer, but they will both need time to adapt. Schalke 04 may struggle in attack but is very tough to break. David Wagner is known as a manager that demands a firm performance in defence from his players.
My Borussia Monchengladbach vs Schalke 04 predictions are Gladbach Under 1.5 Team Goals at odds around 1.83. I will also back Draw 1-1 Correct Score at odds around 6.00. Bet Heaven recommends placing this bet at Bet365.
