FC Schalke 04
Schalke made conclusions after a disastrous last season and held the first round of the current championship at a high level. For the winter break, David Wagner’s team left in 5h place in the table with 30 points in the asset.
Schalke can hardly be called the last two rounds successful – at first the victory over Wolfsburg (1:1) was missed, where the opponent recouped only at the end of the meeting, then Schalke himself escaped in a duel with Freiburg (2:2).
During the winter break, Schalke became the Bundesliga’s most talked about team – the thing is that Alexander Nubel signed a contract with Bayern and in the summer he will be in Munich as a free agent. Almost all significant figures in German football reacted negatively to this transition, even information appeared that Manuel Neuer himself was dissatisfied, which increased the interest of many European giants.
Borussia from Mönchengladbach had a great first round of the championship – despite all the predictions, the Marco Rose team is currently in second place in the table. For a long time, they were in the lead at all in the table, only at the finish of the first round they lost the Leipzig pedestal, which pulled ahead by only two points.

Schalke have the best defense in the championship along with Wolfsburg (18 goals conceded), Borussia also conceded the least away (seven goals), and won the most home matches (seven wins in nine home fights).
The main loss of the team before the meeting with Schalke is Ramy Bensebaini, his injury knocked out for a month, Oscar Wendt will play in his position today.

FC Schalke 04 vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
Borussia from Mönchengladbach is one of the main discoveries of the Bundesliga – under the leadership of Marco Rosa, the foals show high-quality football, deservedly settling in second place in the table. Nevertheless, away games are the weak point of Borussia this season, she has been able to get points recently outside the home walls very rarely.
Schalke, in turn, plays very powerfully at home and has only one defeat at the Veltins Arena by Bayern Munich. In all other cases, the rivals failed to win – today the Schalke will probably try to take advantage this advantage and preference, it makes sense to give it to them.
