Right before the pandemic begins, Borussia showed one of the most stable football with į wins in a row and only 1 defeat against Paris SG in Champions League at Parc des Princes what unfortunately deprived them of a chance to participate in the Champions League this season. But there are lots of pluses in that situation as they can fully concentrate on Bundesliga and fight for long-waited crown of the competition. At the moment, Borussia stands only 4 point away from Bayern Munich and have all chances to take top of the table in near future. Moreover, they still have game against their rivals in Dortmund.
One of the reasons why Borussia should take at least 2nd place in Bundesliga is Haaland, young talent which joined Borussia this winter and already showed incredible form for Black and Yellows. In only 8 played matches Erling scored 9 goals and established himself as the main striker of the club. Furthermore, Jadon Sancho – one of the most talented players in the world at the moment plays his best season with 14 scored goals and 15 successful assists in Bundesliga so far. And of course it’s hard not to mention Marco Reus which should be back after an injury to play Schalke.
Borussia won 5 straight games at home ground even winning against Paris Saint Germain. However, we know how hard to play without such a strong support that have Dortmund. So this time, home game will be not so strong superiority for hosts.
After such a failure last season, Schalke wants to get back on top and fight for European competitions. At the moment they stand at 6th place, however, their last 10 matches form was awful with only 1 straight win against Borussia Monchengladbach in January. All other games they lost or finished draw even against outsiders. Moreover, they were knocked out from DFB Pokal by Bayern Munich and now they have to fight as hard as it is possible for top places in Bundesliga. After 25 rounds they have 10 points difference with Bayer Leverkusen which is on 5th place and 1 point more than followers Wolfsburg and Freiburg. So the main season target is to get back in form and try to save the 6th place in Bundesliga.
