Bet builder August 28: Schalke 04 vs Fortuna Dusseldorf

Planet Sport tipster Pete Farries picks his Betfair Bet Builder for Saturday's action, as he casts his eye over an intriguing game between Schalke 04 and Fortuna Dusseldorf at 7:30pm.

So for a Bet Builder this weekend I'm going to the 2.Bundesliga in Germany and taking a look at Schalke 04 against Fortuna Dusseldorf in Gelsenkirchen.

Schalke haven't adapted quickly to life in 2.Bundesliga, having picked up four points from four games so far, but I think they will get a win here. They had their only league win so far away at Holsten Kiel, and Fortuna Dusseldorf don't look good on the road. Their 2-2 draw the other day wasn't a bad one but they've not looked great barring victory over Sandhausen.

I'm going to go for Schalke here to get the victory as my first selection.

My second selection is over 2.5 goals. These teams have played eight times in total in the league so far this season [four times for each team] and there have been a total of 33 goals in those eight matches. So, straight away, over goals looks fantastic.

My third and final selection for the Bet Builder is both teams to score. This has landed again and again in these teams' matches so far - in three of Schalke's four games and it also landed last weekend in Fortuna Dusseldorf's 2-2 draw.

Fingers crossed Schalke start picking up points.
