Borussia Monchengladbach v Schalke: Bundesliga predictions and tips
Best bet in Germany
Borussia Monchengladbach v Schalke
BT Sport 2, 5.30pm Saturday
Borussia Monchengladbach's attacking threat is likely to be diminished by the departure of Thorgan Hazard this summer and they were outplayed in a fortunate 1-0 win over Sandhausen in the German Cup last time out.
But they finished 22 points above Schalke last term and the Gelsenkirchen club lost young striker Breel Embolo to Gladbach this summer.
The hosts are unbeaten in their last seven matches with Schalke and can grind out a narrow win.
Borussia Monchengladbach to win & under 3.5 goals
Only Leipzig (ten) and Bayern Munich (7) kept more home clean sheets in the league than Gladbach last season.
