Schalke is set to welcome Bayern Munich to the Veltins-Arena on Sunday for their next Bundesliga game.
Schalke will enter the game after a 2-1 loss to Markus Gisdol’s Koln on Wednesday at the Veltins-Arena.
In 34 head-to-head meetings between the two sides, Bayern Munich has a clear advantage. They won 26 games, lost three and drawn five.
Last year, the two clubs faced each other in the Bundesliga, with Bayern Munich thrashing Schalke 8-0.
Schalke is rooted at the bottom of the league table, and this month, some former players signed to help them avoid relegation. Left-back Sead Kolasinac and experienced Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar returned to the club. In the meantime, the emergence of young Matthew Hoppe may have been a positive one for Schalke this season.
Bayern Munich, on the other hand, was not at their best. The Bavarians have former Schalke players like Manuel Neuer, Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sane in their squads. Poland’s international Robert Lewandowski continues to be the club’s most important player.
PREDICTION: Total goals scored will be Over 1.5
