[ClevPicks Prediction]: Dortmund vs. Schalke: Key Games Tonight!

In Saturday's Revierderby against Schalke, Jude Bellingham will make his 100th competitive appearance for Borussia Dortmund (kick-off: 3.30pm CEST).

Latest

Bellingham is the epitome of grit and determination, and it was designed for the largest derby in Germany. The England international has not missed a game thus far this season and picked up an assist in his lone encounter with local rivals Schalke. Despite his best efforts, BVB fell to Manchester City 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday and lost 3-0 against RB Leipzig on Matchday 6 under the leadership of Erling Haaland, a former teammate. Nevertheless, Edin Terzic's team might overtake the Bundesliga leaders - if not immediately - if they win the derby. An ineffective replacement in Leipzig. Nico Schlotterbeck was passed over in favor of Mats Hummels to pair Niklas Süle against City. Hummels may anticipate keeping his spot for the derby given that the Black-Yellows have kept clean sheets in four of the five league games he has started this season. Gio Reyna, a US playmaker, was chosen over Julian Brandt in one of two more substitutions, and he may soon make his Bundesliga debut. It's also possible that Emre Can will be replaced by the more aggressive Brandt.

By gaining promotion back to the Bundesliga at the first attempt—and as the 2021/22 Bundesliga 2 champions, no less—Schalke disappointed the black-and-yellow section of the Ruhr district. The Royal Blues travel quickly to Dortmund with six points from as many games and are coming off a 3-1 derby victory over the bottom team Bochum, which was their first three-point performance of the year. Since defender Marcin Kaminski is still out injured, head coach Frank Kramer should stick with the central defensive duo of Sepp van den Bergh on loan from Liverpool and Japan international Maya Yoshida. Against Bochum, Jordan Larsson deposed Uruguayan playmaker Rodrigo Zalazar, but at a packed Signal Iduna Park, the roles are expected to be reversed. Strangely, every player in Kramer's anticipated starting lineup will be taking the field for the first time in the legendary Revierderby, the 99th in the Bundesliga era.

Match Stats

Bellingham has made 99 competitive appearances for Dortmund and has 13 goals and 18 assists.

The last three derbies have all been victories for Dortmund. Since the 1960s, they haven't had four consecutive victories.

In the 422 Bundesliga minutes Hummels has played this season, BVB has only given up one goal, as opposed to six in the 188 minutes he hasn't.

11 0-0 draws between Dortmund and Schalke have occurred in Bundesliga head-to-head games. But none of BVB's previous 99 Bundesliga games had ended scoreless.

Last season, Bochum's Sebastian Polter scored both at home and away against Dortmund.

In their last three games with Dortmund, Schalke hasn't scored.

Possible Lineups

Dortmund: Meyer - Wolf, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro - Bellingham, Özcan - Reyna, Reus (c), Brandt - Modeste

Out: Bynoe-Gittens (shoulder), Dahoud (shoulder), Haller (testicular cancer), Kobel (muscular), Morey (knee)

Doubtful: -

Coach: Edin Terzic

Schalke: Schwolow - Matriciani, van den Berg, Yoshida, Ouwejan - Flick, Krauß, Zalazar - Drexler, Terodde (c), Bülter

Out: Kaminski (calf)

Doubtful: Brunner (muscular), Sane (match fitness)

Coach: Frank Kramer

Analytics:

We anticipate Dortmund to have too much class in the Revierderby on Saturday, despite the fact that the visitors should be fresher having not played in the middle of the week.

Terzic can make adjustments from the bench if things aren't going his team's way, which is probable if Schalke's potentially defensive gameplan frustrates their opponents in the early going. Adeyemi and Malen are back in the lineup.

I believe the predictions are gonna be miserable, and that's why we offer different predictions, but don't worry, we just offer 1 prediction on 1 aspect, like over 2.5 OR under 2.5, we don't offer under 2.5 AND over 2.5, no.
