No matter where you are in the history of the world, it is always nice to come home. Now the way from Dusseldorf to Gelsenkirchen is not very far, but for the two Fortunen Kaan Ayhan and Marcel Sobottka it is a return home, when Dusseldorf on Saturday at FC Schalke will be a guest.
Betting Predictions and Odds Schalke vs Dusseldorf
Gifts are the two Dusseldorf but no more than distribute Benito Raman on the other hand, who has changed the jerseys before the season and moved from the Rhine in the Ruhr. Both teams will be hot for this game. Even though it is not a derby in the strictest sense, Gelsenkirchen and Düsseldorf are only about 50 kilometers apart.
In the table of the Bundesliga the distance is felt a bit further. Schalke is with 18 points in sixth place and is thus in the chasing group of the leader Gladbach. This score means that the miners have already scored as many points after ten matchdays as in the entire first half of the preseason.
Dusseldorf has only brought ten points, but it has already twice as many points in the account as in the previous season at this time, before the Fortuna started and marched confidently to relegation. On Saturday, however, they are only outsiders, because in the match between Schalke and Dusseldorf, the prediction goes in the direction of a home victory.
The Schalke have performed very well in front of their own audience in recent weeks, while the Fortuna has played abroad as a point supplier. If it does not change fundamentally on Saturday, then remains in the neighborhood duel between Schalke and Dusseldorf almost only a tip on a threesome of the Royal Blues.
S04 would continue to consolidate with a win in the leading group, while the Fortuna could make the leap into the small midfield of the league with a surprising success.
Schalke – Statistics & Current Form
Schalke boss Clemens Tönnies is back. After the racism scandal that hit the media like a bomb, he was suspended by the board for three months.
“We have to face racism much more in society. I think we all have a duty in Europe to do something for Africa. ” – Clemens Tönnies
His punishment has now come to an end and even if he will not be in the stadium on Saturday, the headlines of the return of Clemens Tönnies apply. This is now purified and regrets the whole story.
With it we take the sponge, wipe the story once and take care of the sporting affairs on Schalke. As it looks in this season better than expected. David Wagner has again formed a unit from this team, which counts to the strongest running teams in the Bundesliga.
This diligence of the miners also brings its price. Schalke is doing very well in the fight for the international places in the Bundesliga. These are the Royal Blues in the DFB Cup even with the party.
It could not be much better right now. In the last eight competitive matches Schalke conceded only one defeat. This suggests that in the match between Schalke and Dusseldorf the odds to use a home win.
At home it looks very good in the last weeks. In the last four home games, there was no defeat and the yield of eight points can be quite impressive. With an energy performance, the team of David Wagner got a very important win at FC Augsburg last week.
The home side went first with 1: 0 lead, but Schalke could draw with the half-time through an own goal. An hour later, the FCA scored once more with a penalty, but Ozan Kabak and Amine Harit turned the match into a celebrated 3-2 victory, which Schalke players dedicated to their colleague Salif Sane.
He had to be replaced badly injured early and will not be on the pitch this year. Because Benjamin Stambouli and Matija Nastasic also threaten to fail, Schalke go out the center-back. In addition, Juan Miranda will be missing. In the attack Benito Raman and Mark Uth should again get the preference over Guido Burgstaller.
Expected formation of Schalke:
↳ Nübel – Kenny, McKennie, Kabak, Oczipka – Mascarell – Caligiuri, Serdar, Harit – Raman, Uth
↳ Trainer: Wagner

Dusseldorf – Statistics & Current Form
Football parties are certainly in short supply at Fortuna Dusseldorf. That’s because Friedhelm Funkel’s team knows what they can do and, most importantly, what they can not.
Fortuna is strong and successful, especially at home. If victories abroad were to succeed, then the Rhinelanders would be a candidate for a one-place table position. So there remains the hope to quickly get 40 points together again to secure the class whereabouts, which would be a huge success for this club.
On Saturday, not only the bookmakers in the match between Schalke and Dusseldorf hold back with a prediction on the Fortuna. This may be due to the fact that the eleven of Friedhelm Funkel has recently lost four times in a row in foreign countries. At home, however, there were last three wins in a row, including in the DFB Cup against the second division Erzgebirge Aue.
The supposedly most important game of the season, the Dusseldorf have won last Sunday. After 30 years, finally a victory in a Bundesliga match against the eternal rivals 1. FC Cologne succeeded.
The Billy Goats had more of the game, but Rouwen Hennings’s penalty and Erik Thommy scored for a 2-0 victory that might give them tailwind for Schalke. However, Friedhelm Funkel knows that his team is facing a very difficult task on Saturday.
“We meet a team that has scored points in the past few weeks and hardly lost. They show a completely different face than in the previous year. ” – Friedhelm Funkel
The Düsseldorf coach seems to be a little surprised that the Schalke show a completely different face this season than last year. Maybe it’s even a bit of a blueprint of Fortune playing – with a lot of dedication and passion.
Some Dusseldorf continue to guard the military hospital. Aymen Barkok, Kenan Karaman, Thomas Pledl, Michael Rensing and Kevin Stöger remain unavailable. However, that does not mean that the Fortuna will necessarily start with the victorious team of the previous week. For example, a triple chain could be an option that could pave Andre Hoffmann into the starting lineup.
Expected formation of Dusseldorf:
↳ Steffen – Zimmermann, Ayhan, Adams, Gießelmann – Morales, Bodzek – Room, Fink, Thommy – Hennings
↳ Trainer: Funkel
