Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Veltins Arena. Die Knappen continue to struggle in the 2020/21 Bundesliga season, with the team suffering a heavy 4-1 loss at Borussia M’gladbach on Matchday 9. The rock-bottom side are still eyeing their first win of the season, and we do not believe that they will get one against Bayer Leverkusen.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to retain their spot in top four, and seeing that the game will be played behind closed doors, away win should be considered. Given the number of absentees in the home team, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. You should bear in mind that Bayer Leverkusen are undefeated in the previous four meetings with Schalke 04 in the German top flight. Fit-again Czech international Patrick Schick is likely to lead the line for the visitors.
