Bayern Munich v Schalke betting preview and tips

Bayern Munich are having a brilliant 2020 and there’s every reason to think this will continue into the new football season, with Hansi Flick having resurrected the fortunes of the team after replacing Niko Kovac at the end of 2019.

It’s a simple case of not trying to mend a bike that isn’t broken although there’s the irresistible prospect of a fully-fit Leroy Sane lining up for the Bavarian side and his pace and skill will only make them more of a dangerous outfit for the coming campaign.

Bayern Massive Favourites to Win Bundesliga Again

You won’t get rich backing Bayern to win the 2020-21 Bundesliga title although they are likely to be in plenty of antepost football accumulators, with Flick’s team trading anywhere between 1/5 and 1/8 to lift another title. It’s ultimately hard to see another side living with them.

There is strength all over the pitch and Robert Lewandowski continues to show that age isn’t a factor when it comes to being arguably the best striker in the world, while Serge Gnabry, Kingley Coman, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka all enjoyed stellar seasons which saw Bayern land the Champions League.

How Can Schalke Get Anything at the Allianz?

It’s a difficult opener for Schalke when they head to the Allianz Arena on Friday 18 September and David Wagner will need to bring about an improvement with this team after a poor run of results after lockdown which started with a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Borussia Dortmund in the derby.

The former Huddersfield manager steered the team to twelfth place in the Bundesliga come the end of the season, with the Blues actually failing to win a single match in the German top flight after beating Borussia Monchengladbach on 17 January.

The results at the end of the season were particularly heavy and Schalke finished second-bottom when you look at the last seventeen matches of the campaign which is a big concern for this clash.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

We know it’s like shooting fish in a barrel to tip Bayern Munich to win this German Bundesliga opener, although the champions look a decent shout at nearly evens to land a victory by a margin of three goals or more against a team who haven’t recruited many new signings.

Wagner could be on borrowed time at Schalke and we are also going to punt on the 4-0 winning scoreline for Bayern although you could also play around with the 5-0 and even 6-0 correct scores too.
