Tomorrow the German football teams Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 are meeting again at Bundesliga. The last time they met was on the 20th of October 2012, when Schalke 04 managed a 2-1 victory over Dortmund. However, that was their first and only victory achieved against Borussia Dortmund in the latest five matches.
In this match, the boss of Dortmund, Jurgen Klopp, will have to cope without the midfielder Sven Bender, who continues his struggle for recovery, and also without Patrick Owomoyela, who remains sidelined the whole season. Still, he will have the top-scorer Robert Lewandowski available and also the defender Mats Hummels who has recovered from a more serious flu. Here you can find the whole structure of the team.
On the other hand, Schalke are still without the goalkeeper Lars Unnerstall, who hasn’t recovered from his knee injury, and also without Ibrahim Afellay who is facing a muscle problem. The defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos will also sit this one out due to a serious knee problem, as he is awaiting surgery. If it wasn’t enough, the midfielder Jermaine Jones is currently suspended.
All in all, I think the gap caused by Schalke’s missing so many key players will lead to a comfortable Dortmund’s victory. So I will place 6 units on Borussia Dortmund’s victory at 2.05. The odds I used were provided by IBCBET.
