Bayern Munich vs. Schalke 04 Match Analysis and Prediction

With a Champions League trophy in their possession, Bayern Munich kick starts the Bundesliga this week in style. The side plays host to Schalke 04 at the Allianz Arena on Friday with kickoff at 9:30 pm.

Bayern Munich is a force to reckon with in the Bundesliga. The side recently lifted their 30th top-flight trophy in a breeze with games to spare. The same is opposite for Schalke 04, who struggled in their last campaign.

Bayern Munich proved to be a dominant figure in the previous campaign, managing to swop 82 points from 34 games. It was enough to secure a title win at the top with second-placed Dortmund coming in 13 points behind.

The win meant the eight consecutive Bundesliga win for the side. Their trophy cabinet hosts the annual German Cup and the coveted Champions League trophy. It will be a hard race to knock off the Champions from their high horse this season. The German giants recently lost Phillipe Countinho, Ivan Perisic, and soon Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool.

It was a disappointing 2019-20 campaign for Schalke 04 finishing off 12th in the league. It is a major drop given the side finished second in the previous campaign. A new season with new beginnings beckons for David Wagner’s side.
