Match Date: 13 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Borussia-Park

 

Once again, Schalke is having a slow start just like what they did last season. It is a bit surprising to see the Royal Blues suffering from a victory drought, but indeed, the club is still winless after its first 2 matches.

 

But Schalke is not the only club that has been suffering from this dilemma. Even Borussia Monchengladbach, its upcoming opponent is still desperate for a win.
As online betting favorites meet, which of the two shall gain the upper-hand?

 

The contenders

Borussia Monchengladbach

Monchengladbach currently suffers a high degree of frustration. The squad had its chance to win its first  3 points if Admir Mehmedi was able to convert the penalty that was given to him.

 

Unfortunately, it was the opposite that occurred. The anticipated goal of the said game did not materialize and the whole squad is paying for it. It could have been the start of a strong campaign, but they stumbled again.

 

Schalke 04

Schalke’s draw against Bayern Munich was not bad at all. As a matter of fact, it could even serve as a morale boost to the whole squad.

 

The Royal Blues was unsuccessful in its first match and the draw with Bayern was not that impressive. However, it cannot be denied that a stalemate is still much better than not having a single point at all.

 

Possible head turners

Eric Choupo-Moting has been taking the shots during the Bayern encounter, but none of them went straight into the net. Hopefully, the striker could be more clinical when they go against Borussia Monchengladbach.

 

Prediction

It will be a down the wire match for both squads. However, the possibility of gaining the upper-hand will most likely come from Schalke’s side.
