  • Venue: VELTINS-Arena (Gelsenkirchen)

Bundesliga strugglers Schalke faces an enormous test on Saturday when they host title-holder Bayern at the VELTINS-Arena. 

Two sides in vastly contrasting form, Bayern arrives in Gelsenkirchen in the midst of a five-game winning streak in the Bundesliga, having scored a stunning 22 goals in dominant wins against Freiburg, Hoffenheim, Mainz, Hertha and Werder Bremen. 

Now facing a Schalke side that had lost each of their last seven Bundesliga matches prior to a midweek win against Mainz, leaking 17 goals in the process, things could get ugly for the Meister der Herzen against a rampant Bayern.

Schalke vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips: Bayern and over 3.5 goals

Anything other than a comfortable away win would be considered a massive shock, with Bayern and Schalke at polar opposites in the recent form stakes. Averaging over 4 goals per game, Bayern have been dominant, even against some of the division's stronger opponents. Now facing Bundesliga´s weakest performers, with the home side taking just 9 points from 14 matches played, Bayern should be expected to run riot with at least 3 away goals expected.

Historically, Bayern has dominated this fixture in recent years, winning each of their last 10 meetings, including a 4:0 win on their last visit to this arena in 2021. Prior to that win, Bayern had scored 8 when they last hosted Shalke in Munich in September 2020.

Ultimately, we can´t imagine Schalke preventing Bayern from running riot here, and the hosts can be backed with confidence to win by at least 3 goals with a HT/FT selection also likely to prove profitable. Bayern have been winning at halftime in each of their last 9 victories.

Having already conceded six goals in a home loss to Union, it wouldn´t be surprising to see Bayern pull off a similarly destructive victory in what should prove an easy day at the office for Der FCB.

Sadio Mane has been ruled out of the World Cup in a cruel blow for the Bayern forward. Mane should be replaced by Leroy Sane in the Bavarian attack. 

Senegalese forward Mane joins Alphonso Davies, Thomas Muller, Josip Stanisic and Bouna Sarr on the sidelines, with Dutch defender Mathijs De Ligt also set to miss out ahead of Holland´s opening World Cup match a week on Monday.
