Schalke vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips

Schalke will host Bayern Munich at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen on 24th January 2021 at 20:00 IST. Schalke are just having a nightmare season as they are currently the worst side in Bundesliga and are on the back of a home defeat against Koln. The champions Bayern Munich were also not at their best last week but managed to get a narrow 1-0 away victory against Augsburg.

Schalke Form and Team News

Schalke are quickly heading towards relegation as they are currently sitting at the bottom of the Bundesliga with seven points. The 4-0 win against Hoffenheim proved to be an anomaly as that is the only win in 17 Bundesliga matches this season. They have lost 12 times and drew four times in the league. In the 17 matches played, Schalke have scored 14 goals and conceded 44 goals. Schalke has only one win, two draws and six losses in the nine home matches.

Schalke has six players out due to injuries. The veteran Klass-Jan-Huntelaar is out due to a calf injury. Gonçalo Paciência, Salif Sané, Kilian Ludewig, Steven Skrzybsk and Alessandro Schöpf are the other absentees. Matthew Hoppe’s brilliant hat-trick against Hoffenheim is the only performance from Schalke that they would be proud of. He is the highest goalscorer for Schalke this season. The midfielder Amine Harte is leading the assist charts with five assists.

Bayern Munich Form & Team News

Hans-Dieter Flick’s side is once again the front runners in the league and they are currently four points off Leipzig with 39 points after 17 matches. They have twelve wins, three draws and two losses in the league. In the 17 matches played, Bayern has scored 49 goals and conceded 25 goals. Bayern’s away form is decent if not spectacular. Out of the nine games on the road, they have won six, drew one, and lost only two matches.

Bayern has two players that are unavailable for this match. Tanguy Nianzou is out due to a torn muscle bundle and Joshua Zirkzee is out as he is serving a red card suspension. Robert Lewandowski would be a handful to deal with as the best striker in the world is leading the goalscoring charts with 22 goals.

Our Tipster’s Angle

This looks like a mismatch both on paper and the way two teams have fared this season. We expect Bayern to put forth a dominant display and get all three points to retain their position at the top.

Tip 1: Halftime/Fulltime – Bayern Munich/Bayern Munich

Bayern’s supremacy is almost unparalleled and they have had a stranglehold over the league which has come to the forefront this season again. Bayern has always been quick starters in this fixture. They have held the lead and got the win on every occasion in their last five games. This is Schalke’s disastrous season, where they have managed to win just one game and the way Bayern has dominated them in the past suggests that they would get the lead at halftime and get the win at 1.50 odds available in Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Total shots over 23.5

It is definitely not a dull encounter when either side is playing in the league this season. There were a high volume of shots in their respective matches in the league. Three out of the last five games, both for Bayern and Schalke have resulted in more than 23.5 shots in the league. It is a similar story in head-to-head encounters as well, as three out of their last five games where they have locked horns have more than 23.5 shots in them. Hence there are better chances of there being more than 23.5 shots scored in the match at 1.95 odds available on Casumo sportsbook. 


Bayern looks like they are going to continue their unbelievable streak by winning their consecutive nine league titles. Schalke would be desperate to get anything from this game as they are running out of games to move away from the relegation zone. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above.

  1. Halftime/Fulltime – Bayern Munich/Bayern Munich @ 1.50
  2. Total Shots Over 23.5 @ 1.95
