Dortmund vs Schalke 04 Match Previews

This match will be played in an empty stadium as the coronavirus scare spreads across Europe.

Dortmund are on a five-match winning streak in all competitions and four-match winning run in Bundesliga. They will pounce on every opportunity to win and surge ahead of the table. That opportunity comes in the form of Schalke who travel to Signal-Iduna Park with a massive mountain to climb.

(Lucien Favre’s squad spiked their winning run in all competitions with a 2-1 home win over Paris Saint Germain in the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie. The second leg is set for Thursday at PSG.)

FOUR STRAIGHT WINS

In Bundesliga, Dortmund moved on with might from a 4-3 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen to win their next four fixtures in succession. They walloped visiting Eintracht Frankfurt 4-0, won at Werder Bremen 2-0, won at home over Freiburg 1-0 and then prevailed at Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1.

Dortmund are one point ahead of third-placers RB Leipzig who host Freiburg the same day. Striker Erling Haland and midfielder Jadon Sancho have been on fire lately and will take up the load gain for Dortmund.

Meanwhile, Schalke’s winless drought in six league matches continued as they drew 1-1 at home against Hoffenheim. They have two other draws, 1-1 at home against Paderborn and 0-0 at Mainz 05 in their latest game.  David Wagner’s side are sixth in the standings with 37 points after 25 matches and nine points behind fifth placers Gladbach, whist just a point ahead of seventh-running Wolfsburg.

Dortmund vs Schalke 04 Prediction

• It will be odd to see this derby match played behind closed doors. 4 points off league leaders Bayern Munich, Dortmund have the best home record in the division in every sense. They are the only side with an unbeaten home record, and they have the highest scoring record and the best home defence too. But the big question will be whether or not they can bounce back.

• Schalke are vying for a European spot in the Bundesliga where they currently occupy 6th place, but their recent form has been poor. They are without a win in their last 9 games in all competitions, and they have conceded 9 goals in their last 3 league games.

• Dortmund bouncing back from their midweek defeat and going all out to chase Bayern by beating their biggest rivals with ease.
