Schalke vs Dortmund by MartinKamenarski

Schalke hosts their biggest rivals Borussia Dortmund on Saturday at Veltins - Arena(Gelsenkirchen). The Rivier derby also known as Ruhr derby is one of the most fiercest derbies in German football with lots of emotions , breathtaking moments and even fights. It is always been a question of honour to win that match and to be the king of the Ruhr region until the next clash.

Schalke does not have not a good season,They are on 9th place , 13 points from Borussia Dortmund.From 25 matches they have only 33 points which is one of their lowest performances in the Bundesliga so far. Despite the bad season , they head off into this clash in a good form (W3 , D3 , L1).They also managed to do a great comeback against Gladbach in Europa League (2-0 / 2-2) and knocked them out which shows us improvement in the quality of the team.

Schalke has two important injuries - Naldo and Breel Embolo are both out.

The situation in Dortmund is not quite different.They are in absolutely great form.They won 6 from their last 7 games with the stunning (21-4) goal difference. The yellows managed to beat Benfica in order to progress in the Uefa Champions League tournament.They showed us that they can play an attractive and scoring football. In the championship they are 3 points behind the newly promoted miracle RB Leipzig and one point above Hoffenheim so no doubt they will try everything to score goals and secure their place because they definitely need points.

To sum up , both teams proved that they are really solid in 2017.Both of them need points to progress in the championship.They showed us great improvement and we witnessed quite good comebacks which showed us that both of them can score goals when they are in a hard position so I expect at least one goal from both sides.Something to add , the last 9 matches at Veltins - Arena between them ended with BTTS so I am backing them with full

Kelvn wasn't your fault.they played like babies.they really let their late captain down.Keep up with your effort.

@Kelvn Barcelona let me down 3 years ago, do you think I black listed them? What kind of logic is yours? This tip WILL land.

Letting your emotions get the better of you becaus a player died. It was a hyped pick, and a very bad one.

@snipern.i agree.emotions took the better of us.a very bad choice indeed.
@fbombs.for me i have 2 blacklist Derry City.for the bundesliga match,BTTS is real.dortmund are poor on the road.they leak goals every time.and with the likes of Aubemayang they get consolations.The pick is nice.
