Bundesliga Bundesliga 2


It was a case of defences on top in the two sides' last meeting, with Ralf Fährmann (l.) and Tim Hoogland (r.) helping Schalke to a 0-0 draw in Dortmund Dortmund had, however, already won the reverse fixture 3-1. Here Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (c.) celebrates scoring the opening goal with Marco Reus (r.) and Kevin Grosskreutz (l.) (©  Imago) It's clear to see just what victory over Dortmund means to Schalke, with <b>Marco Höger</b> (l.) and <br> <b>Jefferson Farfan</b> (c.) jubilant following their 2-1 triumph in 2012. <b>Marco Reus</b> (l.) and <b>Roman Neustädter</b> (c.) were making their <i>Revierderby</i> debuts for Dortmund <br> and Schalke respectively in that match, with both having recently left Borussia Mönchengladbach But it was another derby debutant, Ibrahim Afellay (l.) who had a greater impact on proceedings, opening the scoring in the <br> 14th minute with a well-taken volley. Höger sooner added another, before <b>Robert Lewandowski</b> grabbed a consolation for the hosts <b>Shinji Kagawa</b> (m.) was another <i>Revierderby</i> debut goalscorer and he should feature again in Saturday's match following his return to Dortmund Like Kagawa, Dortmund's <b>Robert Lewandowski</b> (top l.) was among the goals on 19 December 2010, <br>scoring in his first ever <i>Revierderby</i> to stretch his side's lead to 3-0... ...Schalke's <b>Klaas-Jan Huntelaar</b> then followed suit, reducing the arrears to 3-1 Serbian defender <b>Neven Subotic</b> (l.) put Dortmund back on the comeback trail during the Ruhr <br> rivals' 2008/09 encounter, as Schalke squandered a 3-0 lead at Signal Iduna Park. Amazingly, the match finished 3-3... ...despite <b>Jefferson Farfan</b> opening the scoring from the spot in his first dose of Bundesliga and derby action Dortmund's <b>Alexander Frei</b> (r.) netted twice in the aforementioned six-goal thriller, but opened his derby account back in 2006 - a consolation strike in a 3-1 defeat <b>Peter Lovenkrands</b> was on the scoresheet for the Royal Blues that day, chipping in with a debut derby goal at the Veltins Arena Ex-Schalke duo <b>Kevin Kuranyi</b> (l.) and <b>Hamit Altintop</b> (m.) both saw their names go up in lights <br> as debut derby scorers on 13 August 2005 and 2 August 2003 respectively, with Kuranyi scoring twice in the same game Brazilian <b>Ailton</b> bagged his third in as many Bundesliga games and his first in the Ruhr district encounter in December 2004, handing Schalke a slender 1-0 win Former Dortmund midfielder <b>Flavio Conceicao</b> ticked all the boxes when he scored against <br>Schalke on his Bundesliga and derby debut in August 2003 - his only goal in Germany <b>Ewerthon</b> (r.) notched the equaliser in his first <i>Ruhrpott</i> derby on 16 February 2002. The Brazilian striker <br> ended Dortmund's title-winning campaign as the club's third-highest scorer (ten) behind Marcio Amoroso und Jan Koller <b>Thomas Häßler</b> (r.) spent just one season at Borussia Dortmund, but won the hearts of the <br> Yellow-Black faithful with a maiden derby strike, after fellow derby debutant <b>Alfred Nijhuis</b> had given Dortmund the lead <b>Jens Lehmann</b> became the first-ever goalkeeper in the Bundesliga to score an outfield goal, following his <br> last-minute derby equaliser for the Royal Blues in 1997. The international shot-stopper would later join Borussia Dortmund Schalke's <b>Youri Mulder</b> struck to steal the derby spoils for the blue half of the Ruhrgebiet on Matchday 2 of the 1993/94 campaign There were mixed feelings for Dortmund old boy <b>Stephane Chapuisat</b> on his first encounter against Schalke. The Swiss striker scored almost immediately following <br>his introduction as a substitute, only for the Miners to score twice at the death in a topsy-turvy 5-2 win for the Gelsenkirchen outfit <b>Wolfgang Schüler</b> helped himself to a derby debut brace as Dortmund cruised to a 4-1 win over Schalke on 1 December 1984... ...but it was former Dortmund star <b>Hermann Straschitz</b>, who became the first player in Bundesliga history to score a derby double. <br>The now 75-year-old found the net in the first and 27th minute of a routine 4-0 win in February 1965
