Schalke 04 - Borussia M'gladbach betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 18:30 on 20/03/2021 played @ VELTINS-Arena

A mere glance at the betting odds for this match should tell you most you need to know. A home win here is almost an impossible outcome, so it’s not very likely we’ll see solid betting opportunities in the 1X2 market.

Priced at very short odds of 1.50, and away win seems the most logical outcome here. Schalke 04 may be hoping to pull off a draw or surprise win, but both of these are longshots.

Although Schalke are coming on the back of a harsh 5:0 loss, it would be rather unfair to judge them purely on that performance. They were playing an away game in an extremely difficult matchup against Wolfsburg , so they spent most of the match trailing behind.

The previous bout for Borussia M'gladbach was an away game at Augsburg, and it ended in a harsh 3:1 defeat. The betting predictions for that game were rather optimistic, though, so fans can only hope for better performance in round 26.

Schalke’s recent performances have raised some questions about their defence. They conceded 10 goals throughout their latest three Bundesliga matches and betting on Over 4.5 seems like a reasonable option.

It’s easy to spot a certain trend when looking over Borussia M.’s recent history – and not in a good way. Their latest appearances were marked by a high concession rate. For example, their previous 3 matches featured more than 5 conceded goals.

Schalke will need another 11 point to get out of the relegation zone – and this round is not a particularly good opportunity to win them. They are quickly running out of time, though, and will need to move quickly if they wish to stay in the Bundesliga.

As far as the head-to-head stats are concerned, Borussia M'Gladbach already confirmed their status as favourites. They defeated the away team previously in the season, leaving little doubt as to which squad is in better form.

Both teams will have to play with an above-average number of injures. Matija Nastasić, Salif Sané, Nabil Bentaleb, Nassim Boujellab, Gonçalo Paciência, Kilian Ludewig, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar are unavailable for the hosts. Conversely, Ramy Bensebaini, Christoph Kramer, Julio Villalba will not be able to play on the visiting side. The odds still favour Borussia M'Gladbach, though.

We can say with no small amount of confidence that this match will confirm the Over 2.5 Goals market. Both teams fit the bill for such a wager perfectly, so this is a very safe bet, offered at the odds of 1.67 at bet365.

Betting tip (stake: 9/10): Over 2,5 1.67 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 3:1
