Borussia Dortmund vs. Schalke: Revierderby highlights

Separated by just 17 miles, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke contest one of the fiercest fixtures in German football: the Revierderby.

Forged in the mines and steelworks of the Ruhr region, the cities of Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen have a long held a local rivalry. However, with the decline of industry in the area during the 1970s and 80s, attentions began to turn to football as two of Germany’s footballing powerhouses battled for supremacy.

The Black-Yellows and Royal Blues have met 93 times in the Bundesliga since its inaugural campaign in 1963. BVB hold a narrow advantage there with 33 wins to 31 for Schalke, but it’s the Gelsenkirchen club who lead the head-to-head in all competitions by a single victory since that year (35-34; D32).

Schalke will claim to have had the better of Dortmund in recent time after going over two years unbeaten. That included the most remarkable comeback as they came from 4-0 down at the Signal Iduna Park to draw 4-4 in injury time. If ever a draw felt like a win, that was it for the Gelsenkirchen faithful. You can enjoy that game and all other meetings since the start of 2016/17 right here!
