Before you get your picks in for Action 247’s Game of the Week, here are some key insights to break down the matchup:

Game Notes 

  • Bayern knows how to jump out early and hold on to a lead. They have scored first in 15 of their 17 home wins. Schalke has conceded the first goal in five of their six away losses.
  • In the last meeting between the two sides, Bayern came out on top 3-0 in a Bundesliga game. Robert Lewandowski led the way with a hat trick. Going back ten years, Bayern has won 18 matches, Schalke has taken 2, and the teams have worked a draw in the other 3. The average margin of victory for Bayern over that stretch is over two goals.
  • Over the last six months, Schalke has notched eight wins, six draws, and two losses. During the same span, Bayern has eleven wins, six draws, and two losses.
  • After finishing the year as runners-up last year in the Bundesliga, Schalke has been one of the more disappointing squads this year. They have secured only 22 points in 20 matches.
