The west classic between promoted FC Schalke 04 and Borussia Mönchengladbach is the focus of the Bundesliga games on Saturday. All information about the game.

Situation: Despite Schalke’s 3-1 defeat at the start in Cologne, both teams are euphoric. The Revierclub is looking forward to the first home game after promotion, Gladbach’s new coach Farke is undefeated both in preparation and in the two previous competitive games.

Stats: Schalke have only won one of their nine games in the past six years: in January 2020 they were 2-0 at home.

Personal: At Schalke, striker Terodde should make his starting eleven debut in league one for the royal blues. Gladbach still has to do without Captain Stindl.

Special: Gladbach’s new Itakura meets his ex-club in his second Bundesliga game, with which he was promoted in early summer. Schalke coach Kramer has never won against Borussia as a coach.

The fact that FC Bayern has one of the fastest footballers in the world in Alphonso Davies is nothing new. But the entire Munich squad defies speed. Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sané and newcomer Sadio Mané would also be flashed regularly.

Scandal in the Regionalliga West: The game between 1. FC Köln II and Rot-Weiß Oberhausen had to be stopped in the 89th minute because fans had stormed the pitch. The reason was apparently a stolen flag.

Apparently, Robert Lewandowski did not have a good relationship with all the players and employees of FC Bayern. Above all, a star is mentioned by name, with whom the Pole is said to have had a tense relationship.
