BAY vs SCH Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
With Borussia Monchengladbach set to play on Sunday, Bayern Munich can move to 2nd in the table when they host Schalke 04 in Bundesliga at Allianz Arena, in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, on Saturday night (IST).
Bayern Munich find themselves on an unchartered path this season. They are used to top the table with other teams trying to hunt them down for the coveted Bundesliga title.
But the Bavarian giants have gone from being “Hunted” to hunting Borussia Dortmund this season. At the moment, the gap at the top of the table is 7 points, which can be bridged considering Bayern are yet to play Dortmund at home in the 2018-19 campaign.
However, this season already looks uncanny as Bayern have all sorts of problems engulfing them. The form of centre-backs, especially, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels, is a cause of concern, while the team is thought to be ageing.
The last weekend’s 3-1 loss away against Bayer Leverkusen is those kinds of games where Die Rotten ran out of steams. They looked tired and short of cohesion in the defensive department.
Schalke have their own issues hurting them this season. Last season’s 2nd place finish already looks like a distant dream, and now they are closer to the relegation zone than the top-4.
