BAY vs SCH Dream11 Prediction: German giants Bayern Munich are set to host Schalke 04 at the Allianz Arena on Friday night in their opening Bundesliga fixture of the season. After romping to the league title last year as part of a stunning treble alongside the DFB-Pokal and Champions League, Bayern Munich naturally go into this Bundesliga season as the heavy favourites and there are one or two new faces in the ranks who will be looking to make a good impression in this league opener. The Bavarian giants have won a phenomenal 21 straight games in all competitions and will be in no mood to see that record cut short here against Schalke so expect them to come flying out of the blocks. The equivalent fixture last season saw Bayern run out 5-0 winners and another comfortable win can be expected here. As things stand, the home side are fancied to take all three points here.
