Historical records

Most appearances: Romain Weidenfeller leads the way for Dortmund with 24 appearances, the same number as Schalke's Klaus Fichtel.

Most goals: Lothar Emmerich is out on his own with 10 strikes for Dortmund. Gerd Kleppinger, Klaus Fischer, Kevin Kuranyi, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Olaf Thon all found the back of the net five times in Schalke colours.

Most wins: Michael Zorc and Mats Hummels have both been part of 10 Revierderby-winning Dortmund sides. Fichtel, meanwhile, is the most successful Schalke player, with nine triumphs.

Most defeats: A record no one wants. Weidenfeller and Fichtel have both been on the end of nine defeats in this fixture, while Ingo Anderbrügge is the only player to have suffered losses in both team's shirts (three for Dortmund, six for Schalke).

Most minutes: Fichtel sits at the top of this list with 2115 minutes. For Dortmund, Weidenfeller racked up 2079.

Most yellow cards: Die Schwarzgelben's current sporting director, Sebastian Kehl, picked up seven yellow cards in meetings with Schalke - one more than Schalke legend Jiri Nemec.

Most red cards: Nemec is the only player to have been sent off twice. Otherwise, six Schalke players have received their marching orders compared to seven of their Dortmund counterparts.

Youngest player: Youssoufa Moukoko was just 16 years and three months old when he replaced Thomas Delaney during Dortmund's 4-0 win in 2021. Julian Draxler, at 17 years, six months and 13 days old when he made his Revierderby debut, remains the youngest Schalke player in the fixture.

Oldest players: Fichtel reigns supreme in another category, taking the field against Dortmund for the final time aged 41 years, five months and three days. That is more than three years older than Alexander Bade, who was 38 years, one month and seven days old when he last faced Schalke, in 2008.

Records among current players

Most appearances: Hummels is just four behind Weidenfeller's and Fichtel's tally, having played in 20 match-ups.

Most goals: Surprisingly, left-back Raphael Guerreiro is the most efficient Dortmund player against Schalke amongst the current squad with four goals. None of Thomas Reis' players have previously got themselves on the scoresheet against Schalke's fiercest rivals.

Most wins: As mentioned above, Hummels holds the overall record here, and will be looking to become the outright leader at the Veltins-Arena with an 11th win. Incredibly, Ralf Fährmann is the only current Schalke player to have tasted victory against Dortmund, having done so on two occasions.

Most defeats: Hummels, with five defeats against Schalke in Dortmund colours, is the most frequent loser. Fährmann, meanwhile, has been beaten three times.

Most minutes: Again, Hummels comes out on top, having played 1664 minutes. That is considerably more than Fährmann's 932, a haul that casts a shadow over all of his teammates.

Most yellow cards: Along with Hummels, Marco Reus has picked up two yellow cards. In Schalke's 1-0 loss to Dortmund in September, Sepp van den Berg and Simon Terodde went into the referee's book, the only two players from the current squad to do so in a Revierderby.

Most red cards: Reus and Marius Wolf are the only two men from either side to have been sent for an early shower, with one red card apiece.

Youngest players: It may take a while before we see a younger Dortmund player than Moukoko in this fixture. Fährmann was already 19 when he first took his place between the sticks against Schalke's Ruhr neighbours in 2008, yet no fresher face has played in this match amongst the club's active squad.

Watch: Youssoufa Moukoko - Goals, assists and skills


Recovered for a point at home: Dortmund have come from behind eight times at their own ground to eventually pick up a point. Their opponents, meanwhile, have achieved the same outcome in four matches.

Turned the game around at home: Saturday's visitors have come from behind to pick up all three points four times at home, while Schalke have done so thrice.

Recovered for a point on the road: Dortmund edge out Schalke once again here, with five points picked up after falling behind on their travels to three. Nothing, though, will likely ever come to close to the latter fighting back to a 4-4 draw after going 4-0 down at Signal Iduna Park.

Turned the game around on the road: Again, BVB dominate, having come from behind to prevail on opposition territory four times. Schalke have managed to do so twice.

Goals, cards and victories in a single game

Most cards in a single game: Nine cards have been dished out twice. In that legendary 4-4 draw during Matchday 13 of the 2017/18 campaign, the man in the middle brandished nine yellows, one of which contributed to a red, while as many were distributed on Matchday three of the 1997/98 term.

Most goals from one player in a single game: No Schalke star has managed to score more than twice in one meeting, although several have bagged braces. The last to do so was Daniel Caligiuri, on Matchday 31 in 2018/19, while Gerhard Kleppinger struck twice in two separate matches (Matchday 16, 1985/86 and Matchday seven, 1986/87). The only player to net a hat-trick is Dortmund's Emmerich, who managed the feat in 1966.

Most goals in a single match: Fans have been treated - or had to suffer, depending on their allegiance - eight goals in three Revierderbies. Dortmund hammered Schalke 6-2 twice in 1960s, with the famous 4-4 draw the other member of this select group.

Watch: Dortmund won the 99th Bundesliga Revierderby earlier this season

Biggest win: On November 11th 1985, Schalke strolled to a 6-1 home victory, although they have never been able to match Dortmund's 7-0 hammering, also in front of their own fans, on 26 February 1966.

Longest winning run: Dortmund won eight times in a row between 1964 and 1967, which is the best streak from either side. Schalke's leading effort is just three consecutive victories, which came in 1968 and 1969.

Longest unbeaten run: Dortmund's series of eight successive wins is also their longest run without defeat, although they did also avoid losing eight times consecutively from 1979 to 1984 (six wins, two draws). A solid record, but not enough to get the better of Schalke here - the Gelsenkirchen-based outfit went 12 games without losing between 1999 and 2004.
