Key Facts

  • Schalke will be aiming to make the most of Borussia Dortmund’s average domestic form when both the sides face each other on Saturday
  • Die Rotten Bullen might have demolished Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek but their Bundesliga form is far from perfect
  • Dortmund, who are currently sitting at 6th place in the Bundesliga table, have won just 1 of their last five games in the German top-flight

Schalke will be aiming to make the most of Borussia Dortmund’s poor domestic form when both the sides face each other for the 138th Revierderby at the Veltins-Arena on Saturday.

Doing that is seemingly impossible for a Schalke side that is currently sitting at the bottom of the German top-flight, with nine points separating Christian Gross’s side from safety. Schalke have won only 1 game all season and are clearly the underdogs on Saturday.

Dortmund might be out of the title race but they could use what is expected to be their last top-flight derby with Schalke for at least two years to get back to winning ways in Bundesliga, having won just 1 of their last 6 games in the German top-flight.
