Will we see a goal festival like before ?
- Title : Will we see a goal festival like before ?
Seldom have the omens before the Revier derby been as clear as on Saturday. If you look at the odds before the duel between Dortmund and Schalke, you will quickly get an impression of how different the mood in the pot is currently.
The situation remains critical, especially with the Royal Blues. The Gelsenkirchen team have been waiting for a win for 20 (!) Bundesliga games and are currently 17th in a relegation zone. It therefore takes a lot of optimism to make a prediction on the Baum-Elf between Dortmund and Schalke.
After Dortmund bad game in Roma and Schalke come back in the last game , i go for both Team to not score with a 1.95odd
Even if, in the run-up to the eagerly anticipated game, many experts warned BVB not to take their ailing neighbors lightly, everything currently points to a Borussia success. And that although the black and yellow team offered a very weak representation during the week at the Champions League opener at Lazio Rome and deservedly drew the short straw with 1: 3.
In addition, it should make the favorite think that they could only win three of the past nine district derbies. We dare to doubt whether Schalke can seriously pose problems for an angry BVB team in view of the current situation, without any self-confidence and, felt, even without the necessary quality on the pitch. Logically, we are directing the focus between Dortmund and Schalke on a tip in favor of the Favre-Elf.
51 yellow cards in the last nine district derbies are evidence of a lot of struggle and commitment. In terms of sport, the favorite from Dortmund has not always prevailed in recent years. BVB only won three of the most recent nine direct duels against Schalke 04. Since 2016, the direct comparison with two wins and five draws has been absolutely balanced.
Last season, however, the pointer turned out to be more in favor of the black-yellows, who won 4-0 at home and managed a goalless draw at Schalke. For the first time, the Royal Blues remained without their own goals in the first and second leg. There have never been three consecutive Ruhrpott encounters without a goal for S04.
