BAYERN MUNICH NEWS

Bayern Munich has 3 points of advantage over RB Leipzig at the moment. The reigning champions are in an excellent form currently, but they are certainly more focused on the Champions League match against Arsenal, which will be played in 2 weeks. Schalke is one of the strongest German clubs, but Bayern Munich has a great record against them in recent years, so they are expecting an easy game. Arturo Vidal, Thiago Alcantara and Jerome Boateng are injured for the forthcoming match.

SCHALKE NEWS

Like Bayern Munich, Schalke is focused on Europa League match against PAOK that will be played in two weeks. It seems that Schalke won't be able to fight for the top 6 this time, since they are trailing behind 6th placed Hertha by 9 points currently, so they will prioritize Europa League until the end of the season. In addition, they have a terrible record against Bayern Munich so their expectations for the forthcoming match aren't high anyway. Breel Embolo, Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Franco Di Santo, Bernard Tekpetey, Baba Rahman and Junior Caicara are injured for the forthcoming match.

SUMMING UP!


Although both teams are focused on their matches in European competitions, we should see a quality match with many goals scored. Bayern Munich is certainly the favorite to win this.
