Borussia M’gladbach is welcoming Schalke 04 to Borussia-Park in round 9 in the German Bundesliga.
Borussia has been incredibly dominant in their last 2 Champions League games, and they have beaten Shakhtar twice. Borussia has scored 10 goals in those two games while conceding 0 goals. Surprisingly, M’gladbach is at the top of their group with 8 points, and they are the only undefeated team in that group. In Bundesliga, M’gladbach is not as dominant, and they haven’t won any of their last 2 games. In their latest game, Borussia was hosting Augsburg, and they have had 52% of ball possession in that game, 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. M’gladbach was ahead since the 5th minute, and they even had an extra player since the 66th minute, but they still conceded a goal in the 88th minute. The final score of this match was 1-1. Stindl has scored 4 goals for Borussia so far in Bundesliga. Hofmann has added 4 assists. Hofmann is injured, while Bensebaini is in quarantine. M’gladbach is in 7th place in the Bundesliga standings with 12 points, but they are just warming up, and I think we can expect them higher in the table pretty soon.
Schalke is definitely the worst team in Bundesliga, and they are still waiting on their first win of the season. With only 3 points, 5 scored goals, and massive 24 conceded goals, Schalke is in the last place in the standings. In their last game in Bundesliga, Schalke was playing against Wolfsburg at home, and they have had 41% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 74% of the correct passes. Schalke has lost this game 0-2 with two goals conceded in the first half. Uth is the leading goalscorer for Schalke with 2 goals, while Thiaw and Paciencia added 1 goal each. Schopf is the only injured player for Schalke at this time. Schalke is in full rebuild mode, and this season will be extremely hard for them, and unfortunately for them, relegation has become their reality. When these young players mature and gain more experience, Schalke will once again be a solid team that could do some damage in Bundesliga, but until then, Schalke is a kitten between dogs in Bundesliga.
When playing at home, M’gladbach has not lost to Schalke in their last 8 games, and I don’t think they will start now. Schalke has lost 3 of their 4 games on the road this season, and nothing is working for them. The only option here is to side with M’gladbach despite them playing in the Champions League earlier this week.
