Football best betting tips for Dortmund – Schalke

The German Bundesliga returns after the COVID-19 break and we’re thrilled to see it back in action! On Saturday afternoon we will have the chance to watch the incredible Ruhr derby between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund. Let’s preview it with our football best betting tips for today.


For Borussia Dortmund the action is restarted at second place in the Bundesliga standings. Die Borussen are still hopeful of winning the league again, but they are currently on four points behind the leader and reigning champion Bayern Munich. This is not a small gap between these two giants, but it’s also not really decisive. Especially after a long break like this, four points could be easily reduced.


It’s a tradition to see a lot of excitement and goals in the good old Ruhr derby of German football. What Lucien Favre’s team must do now is change the statistics – they have won just one of their last five derbies against the Royal Blues. They are now fighting for the title, so they can’t allow to make a mistake here.


At the same time Schalke 04 are 6th in the Bundesliga, also having a fight here – a fight for an Europa League qualification. Maybe this break came in the right moment for Schalke, because David Wagner’s team was in a terrible form, winning just three points in its last five Bundesliga matches.


We have no doubts that the Norwegian wonderkid Erling Haland will start for Die Borussen. When we add Marco Reus, Jadon Sancho and Thorgan Hazard to the mix, we see that Favre has some spectacular attacking talent here. At the same time Schalke’s David Wagner will use the talents of scoring midfielders like Suat Serdar and Amine Harit, who have scored 13 goals combined since the beginning of the Bundesliga season.


That’s our football best betting tips for the Ruhr derby between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga. Our tip is obvious here – these two teams love to score a lot of goals against each other. Aim for the goals.
