Bayern Munich Vs Schalke 04 German Bundesliga Live Online Commentary
We are in for a one-way street from the very first whistle at Allianz Arena this Saturday. The quality difference between Bayern Munich and Schalke is just huge at the moment and we expect the Bavarians to easily cruise past their opponents and keep on marching towards the 27th Bundesliga title. The last weekend’s road victory at the Weser stadion against Werder Bremen was their 7th consecutive one in the top flight of German football for head coach Carlo Ancelotti and his team. FCB netted as many as eight goals without conceding a single in last two fixtures at Allianz Arena last year when they demolished Wolfsburg and RB Leipzig. Bayern Munich are without center-back Jerome Boateng, who is expected out until March with a shoulder injury, and are doubtful over midfielders Arturo Vidal and Tiago.
We can thus not see the visitors finding the net against in-form Bayern squad. Die Konigsblauen have had great troubles in the attack as they scored single goal in two games against Ingolstadt and Eintracht Frankfurt at VELTINS-Arena in 2017. Head coach Markus Weinzierl is probably the unluckiest of the managers in Bunesliga since he never received a chance to count on full squad since the start of the cmapaign. As it stands for now, Schalke have a few ongoing injuries to report: centre forward Breel Embolo is out until March, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and forward Franco Di Santo are also both sidelined. Attacking Midfielder Max Meyer is also doubtful.
