Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Sunday’s football match at Veltins-Arena sees rock-bottom Schalke take on fourth-placed Borussia M’gladbach on day six of the new Bundesliga campaign. Die Knappen have been struggling to find their form in the national championship at the start of the season and it has to be noted that they suffered a loss in each of their five league fixtures. Schalke are desperate to return to winning ways and, no doubt, the Europa League triumph over Salzburg helped the team regain a much-needed confidence. Borussia M’gladbach suffered a 2-1 loss to Barcelona in Wednesday’s Champions League clash and seeing that die Fohlen struggle on the travels, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up one point from Saturday’s showdown. Schalke are determined to put an end to the negative trend and, taking everything into account, both teams will be happy with one point from the Veltins-Arena clash.
Highlighted Player (Julian Draxler):
Julian Draxler is arguably one of the most impressive footballers to have come out of Schalke’s youth academy in recent years and he spent ten years in the academy before he was promoted to the senior side in January 2011. The attacking midfielder soon started showcasing his skills at the biggest stage and just a year later received his first Germany call-up.
Draxler scored 18 goals in 119 league appearances for Schalke before moving to Wolfsburg in a high-profile deal in the closing stages of the 2015 summer transfer window. Despite his fragile age, the talented footballer has already made over 15 outings for the Germany national team, making one substitute appearance as Die Mannschaft went on to claim the 2014 World Cup trophy.
An exciting player capable of playing on either wing or through the middle, Draxler boasts a good goalscoring record and also regularly creates chances for his teammates, although he has yet to fully realise his potential.
