The Revierderby is widely considered to be the fiercest rivalry in German football. This takes priority even compared to Bayern Munich against Dortmund and the matches involving RB Leipzig as well.
This will be the 95th Revierderby of the Bundesliga era.
Having doubts on which side to bet on? We’ve gathered some news and statistics which might help you decide:
Schalke 04 Team News
Unfortunately, the Royal Blues’ forwards can’t seem to find the net very consistently this season.
Schalke had a very disappointing 2018/19 season and will be hoping they can improve this year and clinch a European spot. They will, however, need to start taking points from matches like these.
Therefore, with the forward players’ poor goalscoring form, Schalke will hope the midfielders can find the net and take a point out of this at least.
Predicted Line-up (4-1-2-1-2)
Kenny, Stambouli, Sane, Oczipka
Borussia Dortmund Team News
Dortmund need a win here if they are to warn the other top German sides that they are in the race for the title.
BVB captain Marco Reus is expected to lead the line for the away side. The German forward has 4 goals and 6 assists against Schalke 04 in 15 matches played against them.
Coach Lucien Favre will be hoping his men can play a great match and give the Dortmund fans something to be proud of.
Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)
Piszczek, Akanji, Hummels, Guerreiro
Sancho, Reus, Hazard
