Bet of the Day: Schalke to climb the table by beating Leverkusen

Check out Coral’s tips for Friday night football

After a disappointing campaign last year, Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen would have wanted to get off to a good start this term.

It’s not quite gone to plan, as both sides have lost three of their first six games in the Bundesliga. Schalke are currently seventh, with Leverkusen three places below in 10th.

Now they have a chance to gain some ground when they face each other at the Veltins Arena on Friday evening.

The away side has tended to have the edge when these two sides have met in recent years. Four of the last five games have ended with an away win.

However, the Coral News Team are backing the home side here. Leverkusen have lost all three of their away fixtures in the league this season, though they’ve scored in each of them.

Schalke have only lost one of their last 14 home games and today’s Coral Bet of the Day is Schalke to win and Both Teams to Score at 16/5.

Keep an eye on Kevin

Kevin Volland has been in blistering form recently and the 25-year-old is likely to be Leverkusen’s biggest goal threat.

He’s bagged four goals in his last three appearances. Only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Robert Lewandowski and Timo Verner have scored more Bundesliga goals so far this season.

Volland is 7/4 to score Anytime. You can also get 11/1 on Volland to score and Leverkusen to lose.

There could be goals

All of Leverkusen’s league games this season have seen at least three goals.

Three of Schalke’s last four have seen a minimum of three goals too.

There could be plenty of action in this one and Over 3.5 Goals is 7/10.
