If we take 18 matches that these rivals have played since 2012, we will see that Bayern won 15 games, scored at least two goals in each. Three games ended in a draw (1-1). There was no Schalke’s victory at all.
The sensational score of 6-0 in the last round versus Hoffenheim proves that the Bavarians in games with weaker rivals can easily win without Lewandowski, who dropped out for a month due to a knee injury. Schalke, on its hand, could get only one victory in Bundesliga matches, which have taken place this year – five of them without goals, including 0-5 in Munich.
We think Bayern will win. Still, very likely, Schalke will be able to score. The Munich’s footballers conceded at least once in each of three matches played versus weaker rivals.
Bet on Bayern’s victory and both teams to score for a rate of 2.35.
