Schalke 04 – Borussia Dortmund
Schalke 04 hosts the leader Borussia Dortmund in one of the big derbies of German football. This is a clash from the 14th round of the Bundesliga. This game is going to be played at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday afternoon.
After finishing 2nd in the Bundesliga last season, now Schalke are having a really difficult time. Right now the Royal Blues are 12th in the Bundesliga standings with 14 points, being far away from the position they would like to be. It’s really strange how Schalke changed the way they perform so quickly. Right now they are 10 points behind the 4th Bayern Munich and the Champions League zone in the Bundesliga.
In their last five games Schalke won twice, made two draws and suffered only one defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt. This is a sign that the Royal Blues are starting to improve a little bit, but it’s going to be very hard for them against Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund are having a wonderful season so far. Lucien Favre’s team is leading the standings with 33 points, having 7 points advantage in front of the 2nd Borussia M’gladbach. So far Dortmund have a record of 10 wins and 3 draws. Right now they are the only unbeaten team in the Bundesliga.
In their previous game Dortmund recorded a 4th consecutive win, beating Freiburg with 2-0 at home. Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer scored for the home team. This was another step forward for Borussia Dortmund in chasing the title. Now the fans believe that the dream is possible and Borussia Dortmund could return on top of German football.
That’s what we had to say about the Bundesliga clash between Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund at the Veltins-Arena. It shall be a great spectacle. We wish you good luck!
