Live in-play betting – 

These two sides come into this game with almost identical recent form but Bayern Munich remain favourites as they have been the most consistent side in Germany over the past few seasons.

Schalke won their last two games meaning they have 5 wins and one loss from their last 6 games – the same as Bayern Munich whose start to the new season has been rocked by division among its stars.

Schalke have been very strong when put under pressure and facing a team with a ferocious attacking force as Bayern Munich will mean they need to keep up their performance defensively to survive a rout.

Bayern Munich beat Mainz 4-0 in their last league game which was a perfect response to their 2-0 humbling at Hoffenheim the previous weekend.

The Bavarians have been inconsistent this season with Arjen Robben lashing out at some of their players by claiming they can do more.

Thomas Muller is also unhappy by his limited role this season as Carlo Ancelotti prefers other options to the attacker.

They have won their last two games – if they get another comprehensive victory in this game that could see them build a winning run.
