Schalke vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Looks like best Schalke’s times are coming back. A few years ago this well-known team took 2nd place and previously was one of the favorites in Bundesliga. However, the 18/19 season was very unsuccessful for them and as they were on the edge of the relegation zone. The 14th place for such a strong team is a bad result, that’s because they decided to change head coach and David Wagner, which showed a very great performance in Huddersfield before.
This season in Bundesliga Königsblauen stands at 5th place with only 7 points behind 1st place RB Leipzig. In general, this year we can see a very tough competition fighting for the highest places. At home, Schalke lost only once so far and stays unbeaten since August, when they lost to Bayern Munich. All other games they won or drew, even playing against teams like Eintracht or Dortmund. Meeting Borussia Monchengladbach should be a very interesting challenge for checking out their abilities, especially after a long break.
The Foals play stronger and stronger with every season as Lucien Favre and Dieter Hecking put this team on a much higher level during the recent years. Last season they finished at 5th place and showed very strong performance playing against favorites. This year, they are even stronger standing at 2nd place right after the leaders with only 2 points difference. Even playing badly away matches, as they have only 1 win and 3 defeats during the last 5 games in Bundesliga, they saved the high place and still obviously can fight for the Bundesliga crown. Moreover, lots of energy and strengths took the UEFA Europa League, where they unfortunately finished at 3rd place in the Group stage. Now they can fully concentrate on the highest German league. Therefore, already in the first game, they must show their serious attitude to victory.
