The season 2020/21 of the Bundesliga continues with the 4th round this weekend. We are going to the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen where Schalke is hosting Union Berlin.
Schalke have started the new campaign with three losses for the fourth time in their last 11 Bundesliga seasons. Having conceded 15 goals – but scored just one in return – this is considered as a disastrous entry into the season, i.e. with overall score 1:15 from 3 matches. Their catastrophic defense – 5 goals conceded per match – is the main problem. From Schalke’s winless Bundesliga run out of 19 matches (with 6 draws and 13 losses) nine of those 13 defeats were accompanied by a margin of at least three goals.
Similarly to their hosts, Union Berlin have seen two of their three Bundesliga games produce at least four total goals. Most of those goals came in the second half illustrate the threat they can present after the break time.
Schalke has now a huge motivation to finally break their long unfortunate losing streak. For this they will need to be focused to score a goal as early as possible, however with their leaky unreliable defense it is very probable that it will be precisely Schalke that will concede the opening goal. It is thus highly probably that most of the goals will be produced in the second half.
With both teams having no problem conceding goals, I suspect that there will be multiple goals scored in this event. All in all, we back the Over 2.25 Asian Total line for this Sunday evening match. Don’t forget to register for the best betting software to enjoy the best odds in the market.
