Mario Goeze first led the favorites (14.), but Daniel Caligiuri (18., Handelfmeter after video proof and 62.) as well as Salif Sane (28.) and Breel Embolo (86.) ensured the first Schalker victory in Dortmund since October 2012. Huub Stevens was also the coach at the time. The switches should secure the class content. The gate of Axel Witsel (84) brought nothing to the BVB.

Schalker fans throw Sancho with lighter

“Dortmund actually has a better team. But you can achieve a lot with spirit and passion,”Stevens said before the whistle at”Sky”. The Dutch chose a defensive approach before 80.196 spectators and formed his team in a 5-3-2 system.

The hosts had a lot of ball ownership, but the BVB lacked speed and ideas at first. The only exception is that if young star Jadon Sancho had the ball, it became dangerous. The English national player also started the tour with a magnifying glass on Mario Gotze. The WM hero of 2014 refined the play per head.

In the subsequent cheer in front of the Schalker Fanblock, Sancho was struck by a lighter on his head. After a short treatment break, however, he was able to continue playing.

Schalke with passion and commitment

The guests recovered quickly from the shock of the delay. Storm Breel Embolo shot Julian Weigl at the hand from a short distance and referee Felix Zwayer decided after studying the TV pictures to frighten the Dortmund to eleven meters. Caligiuri kept the nerves and transformed safely.

The Schalkers then acted with great passion and aggressively entered the contests. The BVB did not come into play at all in the first pass and once again revealed its vulnerability to standard situations.

After a corner ball by Caligiuri, Sane headed for the lead of the royal flowers –since the BVB also helped 76 percent of ball possession in the first pass nothing.

Reus and Wolf fly from the place

Den Dortmundern also lacked the playful line at the beginning of the second half, many fouls and interruptions hindered the flow of the game. A distance shot by Raphael Guerreiro missed his target (54.).

Favre reacted and brought in the 56. One minute, his super-joker Paco Alcazar. But when the BVB wanted to increase the pressure, Reus flew to Foul to Suat Serdar from the square and Caligiuri locked the subsequent free kick into the corner. After that, the Dortmund lost their nerve and Wolf also saw the Red Card.
