Borussia Dortmund vs FC Schalke 04 Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
Borussia Dortmund’s chances of winning the championship were severely damaged when they could only play out a 1-1 draw away to FC Koln on March 20. Sebastian Andersson‘s goal nine minutes before halftime offset Marius Wolf’s goal in the eighth minute, forcing BVB to split the victory for the third time this season.
Star striker Erling Braut Haaland’s expected return to full health, though, would undoubtedly give Rose’s team a much-needed offensive threat for their last seven Bundesliga games. With a brace in his three outings, the in-demand Norwegian international has scored six more goals for Dortmund versus RB Leipzig than any other team in all competitions.
In 12 of their 13 league games played at the Westfalenstadion this season, Dortmund scored at least twice. They also won 11 games, which only Bayern have achieved this season.
Schalke has had trouble getting going in the top division after earning advancement from the second tier last season, having drawn three and lost a couple of their first five games. Simon Terodde’s goal offset Chris Fuhrich’s goal to give Die Konigsblauen a 1-1 draw away at Stuttgart last weekend after they had been humiliated 6-1 by Union Berlin in their last home game.
Frank Kramer’s team is now sitting three points above Saturday’s opponents Bochum at the bottom of the league, narrowly above the bottom three on goal differential.
When Schalke plays Bochum, they will be sure they can make their Bundesliga debut because they have won all five of their previous home matches against Bochum in the top division, with three of those victories ending in clean sheets. However, the two teams drew 2-2 in their previous competitive match in January 2010 in Bochum.
Although Schalke would have preferred a stronger start to the new season, they have at least amassed more points than Bochum, who have dropped all five of their Bundesliga games to this point.
