Bayern Munich will host Schalke from Gelsenkirchen at their home ground within quarterfinals of the German Cup. The future competitors have already met each other recently at Allianz Arena. The match finished in a 1:1 draw and there is absolutely no doubt, that the team from Munich will put maximum effort in the upcoming game to prove that the result was accidental.
Bayern are in a great shape, which the team has proven by winning with a devastating result of 8:0 against the team from Hamburg last weekend. The men from Munich are on the first position in the tournament table, five points away from the chasing Leipzig. Within the last five matches, Bayern had four victories with only one draw. The split of points happened in the match against Schalke, and the defeated teams were Leipzig, Wolfsburg, Arsenal and Hamburg.
For Schalke the German Cup this season becomes of a very big significance, as in tournament table of Bundesliga Schalke are currently only on the 12th position, i.e. huge distance from the Eurocup zone. In this situation, the Cup may become the saving straw for Weinzierl and his men. But the rival is very strong, so can the team from the miners’ town stand against the monster from Munich?
Schalke managed to score a goal in the net of Bayern in the Bundesliga match. Can this situation repeat? Why not. Weinzierl’s attacking line is very decent, the team is extremely motivated, there are some troubles with away games, but there were some successful matches away.
Prediction for the match: Schalke to score.
