Bet live as top German Bundesliga teams FC Shalke 04 and Bayern Munich meet today at 5:30pm UK time.
The German Bundesliga prepares for a clash between FC Shalke 04 and Bayern Munich taking place today 5:30pm UK time at Schalke's Veltins-Arena. The head-to-head statistics between these two teams show a clear advantage for Bayern Munich which has won its last seven matches against Schalke with a 23-2 goal difference.
Schalke started this football season on the wrong foot when they were knocked out in the first round of the DFB-Pokal cup by third division Dynamo Dresden. To make things worse, the Gelsenkirchen club lost its Bundesliga opener against Hannover 2 to 1. Schalke is a strong name in the Bundesliga and it finished third last season. If Schalke wants to stay relevant for this season, theywill have to work hard for the three points.
Schalke defender and captain Benedikt Howedes said he believes the tables could be turned today, and that his team needs to be aggressive against the Bavarians.
Bayern had a successful Bundesliga opener against Wolfsburg last Friday beating the Wolves 2 to 1, but despite the victory there seems to be some kind of imbalance that coach Pep Guardiola must tend to. These changes might come in the form of the fresh new transfer from Roma, Morocco defender Mehdi Benatia whose transfer fee is estimated around €30 million.
Bayern confirmed talks with Real Madrid on midfielder Xabi Alonso which the team could put to a very good use, seeing the absence of key players like Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez, and the departure of Toni Kroos.
