Schalke beats Dortmund 2-0 in Ruhr derby

Schalke beats Dortmund 2-0 in Ruhr derby

Schalke won the game 2-0 thanks to goals from Yevhen Konoplyanka and Naldo but the injury to Batshuayi is a more pressing concern.

"It's something special. A derby win at this point in the season is a highlight", Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel said.

"It's a privilege for me to be up there with the ultras", the 32-year-old Tedesco said.

Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie hailed the atmosphere generated by the home fans as "something you can't get everywhere" after the Royal Blues saw off local rivals Borussia Dortmund to tighten their grip on second place. "They made better use of the decisive situations than we did".


Ralf Fahrmann was called into action for the first time on 24 minutes with a fine save to keep out Marco Reus' swerving free-kick, before Thilo Kehrer missed a good chance at the other end soon after when he failed to test Burki with a free header. We'll be the first to let you know if someone brings his phone to the treatment table.

Konoplyanka broke the deadlock just five minutes after the restart as he latched onto Daniel Caligiuri's pass in behind the defence and slotted past Burki. The defender hammered the ball past Dortmund's ineffective wall and inside the left post again.

Sports journalist posted on Twitter claiming that Batshuayi had in fact broken his leg. Chehade insinuates that his loan with Dortmund will subsequently be cut-short and he will return to Chelsea for treatment.
