Today's Predictions for Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund are targeting their fifth Revierderby victory in a row over rivals Schalke when the teams meet in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday. Read our top Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Borussia Dortmund to Win

Local bragging rights as well as three points are up for grabs in the Revierderby on Saturday when Schalke host bitter rivals Dortmund, though we’re tipping the away side to topple their antagonists for the fifth time on the spin. Schalke have gone six games unbeaten in the Bundesliga, though a BVB side that has won eight top tier tests on the trot will relish the opportunity to halt their neighbour’s run. With their stronger form considered, our first football predictions today recommends backing the visitors to prevail.

Under 2.5 Goals

Dortmund edged out Schalke 1-0 thanks to a late goal when the rivals last locked horns in September and margins could be similarly tight in Saturday’s rematch. With Julian Brandt, Karim Adeyemi and Youssoufa Moukoko all out injured, Dortmund’s firepower has been lessened, while Schalke have conceded just one goal in their last six league assignments combined. It might take just a single goal to separate the teams again this weekend, so back under 2.5 goals to be notched.

Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund lineups and team news for Saturday’s Bundesliga derby match below.

Schalke

Schalke have a lengthening list of absentees which includes Sepp van den Berg, Dominick Drexler, Danny Latza, Thomas Ouwean and Tim Starke, while Eder Balanta, Soichiro Kozuki and Cedric Brunner are all rated as possible doubts. Schalke moved up to 17th spot in the table following their 2-0 win at Bochum last time out.

Predicted Lineup for Schalke: Fahrmann – Brunner, Yoshida, Jentz, Matriciani – Mohr, Kral, Krauß – Zalazar, Bulter, Frey

Borussia Dortmund

As we discussed above, Dortmund will be without three big hitters in the final third in Julian Brandt, Karim Adeyemi and Youssoufa Moukoko, while Mateu Morey, Abdoulaye Kamara and Julien Duranville are also out of action. Dortmund were dumped out of the Champions League by Chelsea in midweek, though their Bundesliga title tilt is still on track.

Predicted Lineup for Borussia Dortmund: Meyer – Wolf, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro – Can, Reyna, Bellingham, Ozcan, Reus – Haller

Player to Watch – Giovanni Reyna

Giovanni Reyna has been a bit of a peripheral figure at Dortmund this season, though the American attacking midfielder could come into the side with injuries stacking up in his position. The 20-year-old, who has scored five times in the Bundesliga this term, has the talent to make an immediate impact if called upon.
