Storylines

Schalke: A decent first match in the league for them, but the concern has to be in attack and where chances will come from. They created only one shot on goal in the opener and must improve there or be at risk of getting throttled by Bayern. 

Bayern Munich: A makeshift defense saw Benjamin Pavard start at center back. Conceding twice in the first half showed a defense that wasn't quite in sync but improved as the match went on. They may not get as much possession as they did in the opener (71 percent), but expect Bayern to play with a bit more patience.

Prediction

Weston McKennie gets the start for Schalke, but the visitors have too much fire power.

Pick: Bayern 2, Schalke1
