Schalke enjoying a strong spell

The Bundesliga returns to action this coming Friday evening as the division’s four-week winter break comes to an end. And Bundesliga action is set to resume in style as an exciting clash between second-placed Borussia Monchengladbach and fifth-placed Schalke is set to get the second half of the season underway.

Schalke currently sit three places behind Marco Rose’s title-challenging Monchengladbach. However, David Wagner’s side impressed during the first half of the 2019/20 campaign. They trail Monchengladbach by just five points going into Friday’s game. 

Schalke ended the first half of the season on a run of impressive form. They have lost just one of their last nine Bundesliga games. Furthermore, Schalke have made the Veltins-Arena a difficult place to visit this season. They have lost just one of their nine Bundesliga home games there this term. 

Borussia Monchengladbach’s away struggles

Borussia Monchengladbach evidently had an excellent first half of the Bundesliga campaign. However, the would-be title-challengers have been far less impressive on their travels than they have been when playing at home. 

Monchengladbach have currently got this season’s best Bundesliga home record. However, they have only got the sixth-best Bundesliga away record, with Schalke themselves placing above them in that particular table. Monchengladbach have failed to win four of their eight Bundesliga away games this season. 

On top of that, Monchengladbach’s recent away form makes for grim reading. They have managed to win just one of their last five Bundesliga away games. Monchengladbach’s poor away form will therefore make Friday’s trip to an in-form Schalke side even more difficult. 

A low-scoring encounter

Monchengladbach have performed particularly poorly in front of goal away from home this season, relative to their league position. Only four teams have scored fewer away goals than Monchengladbach. Of those four , only ninth-placed Wolfsburg currently occupy a place in the top half of the table. 

On a more positive note, Monchengladbach do currently hold the Bundesliga’s best away defensive record. As these stats suggest, Monchengladbach have seen plenty of low-scoring games away from home this season, seeing under 2.5 goals in four of their eight Bundesliga away games. Similarly, Schalke have seen plenty of low-scoring games at home in recent weeks. Three of their last six Bundesliga home games have seen under 2.5 goals. 

On top of this, both these teams have been relatively low-scoring when playing against other members of the Bundesliga’s current top five this season. Both teams have scored just three goals in their four games versus the top five this season and, in the reverse fixture at the beginning of this season, this game ended in a 0-0 draw. We are backing under 2.5 goals to be scored in this fixture and feel a 1-1 draw is a likely outcome in the correct score market.
