All eyes will be on Allianz Arena this evening as Bayern Munich and Schalke clash each other. Bayern aim to keep their hope of winning the Bundesliga trophy alive, and football fans are positive that the mighty Bavarians will go all guns blazing at dying Knappen. A man to watch on the home side will be Poland attacker Robert Lewandowski, who scored his 20th goal of the term in the 4-0 win over Hertha.
Schalke 04 did well to beat Borussia M’gladbach 2-0 in front of home fans at the weekend, but fans do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Bayern Munich’s party at Allianz Arena. When the two teams faced each other in Gelsenkirchen earlier this term, the title holders outplayed die Knappen 3-0, with the team recording their fifth consecutive win over David Wagner’s team in the national championship.
Bayern Munich take to the field after four consecutive league wins. Every one of the mighty Bavarian’ last eight goals within that sequence came no earlier than the 60th minute. All those wins yielded a multi-goal margin, thanks to Bavarian giants scoring exactly twice between 75′-FT each time.
Bayern have a win-rate of just 66.67% at home in the league this season. But two-thirds of their home league wins have yielded a 4+ goals’ winning margin.
With five-game away league form (two wins, one draw, two losses), Schalke go into this clash on the back of a 2-0 win. In turn, Schalke’s last three goals scored in the sequence of league victories have arrived after half-time.
Their last four away league games have ended separating the sides by under 1.5 goals (two wins, one draw, and one loss).
