Munich once again convinced with a strong cohesive team performance. The break for the players was short, but on Friday they will continue with the next season.

Schalke a clear underdog – Handicap bet in the betting tip interesting
While everything is going extremely well for the Bavarians, Schalke has big problems. Due to the Corona crisis, the wallet is empty, and they had to give up one of their best players, McKennie. Moreover, the loan contracts of Kenny, Gregoritsch, and Todibo ended. Nuebel and Caligiuri have also left Schalke. The preparation was everything but good. In the meantime, Schalke had to cancel a friendly due to the injuries. The conditions for coach Wagner are anything but easy. Last season, they had a very good first half of the season, which saved them from relegating. The opener against the Bavarians will be difficult for Schalke. It is important to get the season off to a good start, the tasks won’t get much easier. Therefore, on Friday we see Schalke in the role of the underdogs. Mascarell and Sane are out for the game.
