Schalke have scored at least one goal in each of their last nine Bundesliga games. Bayern Munich have conceded at least one goal in six of their nine Bundesliga home games. Bayern Munich have scored at least two goals in nine of their last 11 Bundesliga home games. Schalke have not conceded more than two goals away from home this season.
Bayern Munich will face a tough test from fifth-placed Schalke this Saturday in German Bundesliga action. Bayern will hope to take three points from Saturday’s game to keep the pressure on league leaders RB Leipzig. However, they will struggle to keep Schalke’s in-form attack quiet this Saturday.
Schalke have been in impressive goalscoring form in recent weeks. They have scored at least one goal in each of their last nine Bundesliga games. Furthermore, Schalke have been consistent in front of goal away from home this season. They have scored at least one goal in six of their last seven Bundesliga away games.
Schalke will fancy their chances of putting Bayern’s defence in trouble this weekend. Clean sheets haven’t been coming in abundance at the Allianz Arena this season. Bayern have conceded at least one goal in six of their nine Bundesliga home games. They will be tested by Schalke’s attack in this one.
Bayern Munich are never an easy opponent for any Bundesliga side. Their quality has consistently produced positive results in recent weeks. This will encourage Bayern going into this Saturday’s game, as they hope to continue their charge towards the top of the Bundesliga table.
Bayern have won each of their last four Bundesliga games. Furthermore, They have also won six of their last eight Bundesliga home games. Bayern have earned the third-highest amount of points at home in the Bundesliga this season.
Bayern’s recent form will be cause for concern for Saturday’s visitors, Schalke. Schalke have won just four games away from home in the Bundesliga. Just one of their four away wins have come versus a team currently sitting in the top half of the table.
Despite pulling off an impressive away win versus RB Leipzig, Schalke have failed to beat Borussia Monchengladbach, Hoffenheim, Bayer Leverkusen, and Wolfsburg away from home this season. We feel that they may be unlikely to get a result at a difficult ground such as the Allianz.
