German Football Odds: Schalke 04 vs. Borussia MonchengladbachPublished February 6, 2015 by Amir G
Schalke 04 host Borussia Monchengladbach for a fight to secure a higher spot in the Bundesliga top (19:30 UK time).
The Veltins-Arena at Gelsenkirchen is the venue for today's top Bundesliga match between home team Schalke 04 and Borussia Monchengladbach (19:30 UK time). Positioned in the Bundesliga table top six, the two teams will attempt to lessen the gap from undisputed leader Bayern Munich.
Schalke is just coming off a 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich after Benedikt Howedes equalized for a second half goal by Arjen Robben. Schalke will have to do without Dutchman Klaas-Jan Huntelaar who was suspended for four matches after a brutal tackle into Hannover's Manuel Schiemedach. Schalke will also miss Julian Draxler but they'll have returning players like Bayern loanee Jan Kirchoff and Marco Hoger, with Kevin Prince-Boateng filling for Huntelaar at the front.
Schalke will look to jump back into the Bundesliga's top five and the home advantage will be vital to taking three points. They could do that with a good performance by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, a top scorer this season which is always a good bet for goalscorers.
Monchengladbach is one of the better teams this Bundesliga season, currently positioned third in the table just 5 points away from Wolfsburg and 13 from Bayern Munich. Their goal difference of 11 sets them apart from Augsburg which is also with 33 points. Statistically, Monchengladbach have the edge on Schalke as they've emerged victorious from their three last games against the Gelsenkirchen outfit victorious.
Like Schalke, they played two games in the last week, but unlike the rivals they won both: 0-1 against Stuttgart and 1-0 against Freiburg. Midfielder Patrick Herrmann scored in both these games – a very good goalscorer bet alongside forward Max Kruse who scored 9 goals this season.
