  • Back a 5/1 Bet Builder on Dortmund dominating derby

The 100th Bundesliga Revierderby may be the last for a while as Schalke sit bottom of the table while Borussia Dortmund occupy a familiar place in second spot behind Bayern Munich entering this week's fixtures.

Goal difference is playing a part for both though, with Dortmund level on points with leaders Bayern, while Schalke are level with Hoffenheim and Stuttgart - with Herth just a point ahead in what's shaping up to be a thrilling relegation battle.

Thomas Reis' Royals Blues are only in touch at all due to a six-game unbeaten run that's seen them win their last two - following 0-0 draws against three sides in the top 10.

Dortmund have won eight straight in the Bundesliga but were dumped out of the Champions League at Chelsea during the week - so will be keen to hit right back as they chase domestic glory.

Schalke struggling against rivals

Schalke haven't scored in their last five meetings with Dortmund, losing four and grabbing a 0-0 draw - and being the Bundesliga's lowest scorers with just 18 this season then a low-scoring draw seems their best chance of getting something.

Edin Terzic's side have also kept three away clean sheets in a row in the league so a toothless Schalke attack shouldn't hold too many fears for them.

Back Dortmund to beat Schalke, over 0.5 first-half goals & over 6.5 away corners


So at 8/11 just for the away win it's not a bad price to kick-start a Bet Builder on this game - and we can get that price just above Evens by adding in a first-half goal, as only one of Dortmund's last 14 away games has finished 0-0 at half-time.

And did you know that Dortmund have won more corners in the Bundesliga than anyone else? With 153 they've earned 53 more than Schalke - who just happen to have conceded the most corners in the league.

So let's go big on Dortmund's corner count here and set them the task of earning over 6.5 corners at 5/4 to give us a nice 5/1 Bundesliga Bet Builder.
