Schalke are one of the most famous clubs in the German Bundesliga although the current team have not been performing well and this is a difficult assignment for the Blues. Perhaps they are playing this clash at a decent time considering that Borussia Dortmund had a big Champions League clash away to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night and they might be feeling the effects.

However, Jude Bellingham has been driving the team to greater heights this season and it’s to the credit of Dortmund that they have coped with the loss of Erling Haaland this season. It’s been a string of victories in the Bundesliga leading to this point and they now have to be considered as genuine challengers to Bayern Munich when it comes to the title race.

Last weekend’s win over RB Leipzig was a massive confidence-booster and Dortmund started the game really well, taking a 2-0 lead before half-time although the visitors had twice as many shots on target. Perhaps Schalke will come out fighting and they do appear to have recently turned a corner after registering wins over Stuttgart and Bochum.

Indeed, Schalke are six games unbeaten after four consecutive draws before those two wins, with the Blues now having a sporting chance of staying in the division. We think that the best bet could be a Dortmund win and both teams to find the net if you are thinking of siding with the visitors. There’s no doubt that this can be an entertaining clash.
