It’s the Revierderby! Schalke-Dortmund, commonly known as “The Mother of all Derbies”, is the biggest rivalry in the Bundesliga. Schalke fans will remember with pride and joy the Ruhrderby last year, when defender Naldo scored in the fourth minute of injury time as Schalke 04 rallied from four goals down to draw at Borussia Dortmund 4-4 in the Bundesliga’s 91st Ruhr derby. Dortmund fans mock Schalke by calling it Herne – the nearest town. Schalke fans return the favour by talking about Lüdenscheid-Nord instead of Dortmund.
Dortmund have won 33 occasions, Schalke have won 31 matches – 29 derbys have ended a draw.
Bundesliga title race is still close
Last weekend Dortmund cruised to a 4-0 victory in Freiburg with their front players all impressing. Goals for Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus, Mario Götze and a penalty off the bench by Paco Alcacer got Dortmund back to within a point of their rivals from Munich. The Royal Blues’ worst season since relegation in 1983 hit a new low with a 2-5 loss at home to Hoffenheim. It will be interesting to see if Borussia Dortmund can show their dominance in the Ruhrderby as well.
Schalke is only 6 points ahead of the relegation play-off place, while Borussia Dortmund is on the second place and hopes for a point loss of FC Bayern, who will play Nuremberg on Sunday.
