Schalke vs Dynamo Dresden - 2. Bundesliga preview
Schalke vs Dynamo Dresden - 2. Bundesliga preview

Schalke will host Dynamo Dresden in the 2. Bundesliga on Saturday, and the Royal Blues will hope to continue their impressive run of results.

Dimitrios Grammozis’ side have won their last three games in the league, and their good run has seen them climb up to third in the table.

Dresden, meanwhile, have been on a poor run of form. The Saxony-based outfit have picked up just one win from their last six league games and have dropped to 11th in the table.

The East Germans started the season brightly with three wins from their opening four games, but their recent run has shown they lack the quality for a promotion charge.

Schalke will be confident of picking up the three points when they face Dynamo Dresden at home as they have been solid at the back and have managed to get the job done up front.

Dynamo Dresden, surprisingly, has a head-to-head advantage between the two teams heading into the fixture. However, it must be mentioned that it’s been a while since the two teams faced off.
