Bayern to cut loose against Frankfurt
A much-lauded Borussia Dortmund team had their ego pricked in mid-week by a humbling 3-1 loss against Lazio in the Champions League, though Lucien Favre’s young team have an immediate chance to put some spring back into their step at home to struggling rivals Schalke this weekend.
Der BVB won the last Revierderby 4-0 at the backend of last season, and the evidence suggests another convincing win looks on the cards when the local antagonists renew acquaintances on Saturday evening.
Schalke started the season with three heavy, confidence-sapping defeats to Bayern Munich (8-0), Werder Bremen (3-1) and RB Leipzig (4-0), and though they were able to gather their first point of the season against Union Berlin last time out, their next capitulation doesn’t look far off.
With Erling Haaland spearheading a lethal looking Dortmund frontline, the hosts have the skill and speed to pile on the misery for Schalke on Saturday, and the over 2.5 team goals market looks a superb price for Die Schwarzgelben.
Dortmund have frustrations to work out of their system after their mid-week continental setback, and our correct score prediction backs them to exorcise a demon or two with a 4-0 win.
BVB won to nil in each of their last two Bundesliga home matches, and having plundered four goals in their last assignment at the Signal-Iduna-Park, Haaland and co can hit another quartet against their struggling neighbours.
