FC Schalke 04 vs. Borussia Dortmund

Saturday, March 11, 2023 – 12:30 PM EST at VELTINS-Arena 

Dortmund Second Best Road Team 

Borussia Dortmund will be well up for this derby having suffered their first post world cup defeat and their first defeat in 10 games midweek during their 2-0 loss to Chelsea which seen them exit the Champions league.  

Although they still remain in the German Cup, Dortmund will be fully focused on winning the league now as they are level on points with Bayern Munich and have not won the Bundesliga since 2011.  

Thus far this season Dortmund has the 2nd most amount of points on the road scoring 21 from a possible 36, including four wins in a row.  

Schalke Undefeated in Six 

Despite going six games undefeated, Schalke is currently still inside the relegation zone in 17th position, with themselves and the other two teams in the relegation zone all on 19 points.  

Above them is Hertha Berlin with 20 points, with the rest of the league beginning to drift further ahead with 27 or more points.  

Pick and Prediction  

Despite this being a derby, Schalke has not been good in recent matchups failing to score in the previous five fixtures and being outscored 12-0.  

Borussia Dortmund has scored 2+ goals on the road in 70% of their previous 12 games.

We believe they will need two goals to win this matchup as we predict Schalke can keep up their strong form and find the back of the net at least once, although Dortmund should prove too strong with the likes of Jude Bellingham and Sebastien Haller at their display.

SSC Napoli vs. Atalanta BC

Saturday, March 11, 2023 – 12:00 PM EST at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona  

Atalanta Going Through Cold Spell  

Atalanta has only picked up one win, one tie, and four losses in their previous six games which has seen them slip out of a Champions League spot and down into a Europa Conference league qualification in 6th position.  

They probably wouldn’t have enough points to qualify for a European competition had Juventus not been deducted points.  

League Leaders Look to Bounce Back From Loss   

Napoli was brought back down to earth last time out with a 1-0 loss on home soil against Lazio, but they still hold a massive 15 points lead over Inter Milan at the top of the Italian Serie A table.  

Coach Luciano Spalletti argued the defeat has only made them more hungry to get back to winning ways against Atalanta in preparation for their Champions League 2nd leg clash against Eintracht Frankfurt next week.  

Pick and Prediction  

Prior to the 1-0 loss at home, Napoli had seen over 2.5 goals scored in 10 of their previous 12 home games and we believe they will get back to hitting 3+ goals in this matchup against Atalanta.  

Six of the previous seven meetings between these teams in Naples have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

Napoli will be hungry for goals after their shutout last time out, so take the over 2.5 goals in this Serie A fixture.  

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5 Goals (-120) at BetOnline  

Sevilla FC vs. UD Almeria

Sunday, March 12, 2023 – 10:15 AM EST at Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán 

Almeria Worst Road Form in La Liga  

Almeria might be level on points with the hosts Sevilla but they have only seen three points on the road this season from a possible 33 matches.

Even the three games they tied were all against teams ranked inside the bottom five for overall points at home.  

Sevilla Looks to Avoid Relegation Zone  

If you're only tuning into La Liga this season you might be surprised to hear Sevilla is in the relegation battle. Coming into this game they are level on points with both Getafe and visitors Almeria.  

Surprisingly Sevilla could end this weekend’s set of fixtures in 13th position if they manage to win and all the teams around them fail to pick up points.  

Pick and Prediction  

Usually we don’t trust Sevilla these days, but their squad is not bottom five in La Liga. Their 3-2 loss to Osasuna on home soil last time out was just their first defeat on home soil in six competitive matches.  

Almeria is a good team on home soil, but away from home, we will continue to fade them until they prove otherwise.
