The Bundesliga is back

After months of football being put on pause, the beautiful game is finally back on our screens as the Bundesliga becomes the first top league to return to action this weekend. Health and safety precautions put in place mean that unfortunately, there’ll be no fans in attendance for any of the games taking place from German’s top tier, but nevertheless there’s still plenty of mouth-watering action as the league’s biggest heavyweights lock horns with matchday 26.

What better way to kick off the restart than with a feisty local derby? Title-chasing Borussia Dortmund host local rivals Schalke 04 in what is set to be a surreal Revierderby. Here are the latest odds for the derby provided by Paddy Power.

Dortmund odds

Lucien Favre’s men need the three points as they look to close the gap on Bayern Munich who sit four points ahead of the second-placed Dortmund. Therefore, it’s no surprise that BVB are strong favourites for the tie at the price of 8/15.

Die Schwarzgelben endured a slow start to their league campaign but have changed it around since the winter break and have won ten of their last 13 league games. Dortmund now finds themselves as the nearest challengers to the dominant Bayern once more and are most definitely in with a title shot. They’re currently in a solid run of form, recording four consecutive league wins before the recent suspension.

Young English winger Jadon Sancho is the name on everyone’s lips after an incredible season so far. The former Manchester City youngster has been linked with mega-money moves to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United following a season that has seen him record an incredible 14 goals and 16 assists in his 23 Bundesliga appearances this season – that’s more goal involvements than any other player in the league this season.

The 20-year-old could return to action by adding to these impressive stats against Schalke. Sancho is 7/2 to score the first goal in the derby, and 5/4 to score anytime in the contest.

Elsewhere, since his signing from RB Salzburg in January, Erling Haaland has been sensational for the Black and Yellows. His £18m move is an absolute steal, with the Norwegian talisman firing in nine goals and two assists in just 512 minutes (eight appearances) of Bundesliga action. His thunderbolt against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League showed his brilliance on the grandest stage in what has been an unbelievable debut few months for the 6ft 4 marksman.

The 19-year-old is a heavy favourite to find the back of the net for Dortmund in their must-win game this weekend, with odds of 4/7 for Haaland to score anytime. Perhaps more enticing odds, Haaland to be the first goalscorer is 15/8. If you fancy the Dortmund’s goal machine to return with a flourish and bag a hattrick against Schalke, Paddy Power are offering the odds of 9/1.

Schalke Odds

The temporary football break may have come at the right time for David Wagner’s Schalke as the former Huddersfield manager had gone seven games without a win in the league. The Royal Blues find themselves now sixth in the league table, with a place in the Champions League looking improbable as they sit 12 points adrift of fourth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach and ten behind fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen.

A Europa League place with a top six finish looks like their most realistic end position, but it isn’t guaranteed just yet. Seven points separate sixth-placed Schalke and 11th placed Union Berlin, so the seven-time German champions will still have to fight to keep their place.

Schalke’s player to watch this season has been promising talent Amine Harit. The 22-year-old has emerged as one of the top young talents in the league this season and was crowned the player of the month in the league in September. The Moroccan has record six goals and four assists so far this season and has impressed with performances. The attacking midfielder who won the Rookie of The Season award in the Bundesliga in 2018, is 7/2 to score anytime on Saturday – 9/1 to score first in the Revierderby.

Furthermore, Schalke are 9/2 to return to winning ways in an empty Westfalenstadion this weekend, or 16/5 to get a point away from home and draw the game.
