Dortmund started full of enthusiasm to the always fraught Revierderby. The home team monopoliseerde the ball and Schalke was barely in the piece. But on opportunities was initially waiting. A partition of Delaney - aangespeeld by Witsel - went high over, but a bit later, could ‘Gelbe Wand’ yet to explode. Sancho saw the great loopactie of Götze and the hero of the world cup final of 2014 headlined neat touch. The hardest part seemed to be done.
Nothing seemed less true. First went the ball for the nose of Bürki on the dot, after the videoref handplay of Weigl had noticed. Caligiuri took the gift receipt and took care of the equalizer. And there remained not even. The second chance for the visitors resulted in once again a hit. Sané troefde Whitewash on a corner and the Senegalese powerhouse has made it very, very quiet in the Signal Iduna Park: 1-2.
