Dortmund edge Schalke in compelling <i>Revierderby</i>

Borussia Dortmund extended their fabulous record of scoring in every game under Thomas Tuchel with a pulsating 3-2 Revierderby win over local rivals FC Schalke 04 on Sunday.

Borussia Dortmund 3-2 FC Schalke 04

Goals: 1-0 Kagawa (30), 1-1 Huntelaar (33’), 2-1 Ginter (43’), 3-1 Aubameyang (48’), 3-2 Huntelaar (72')

Schalke held their own for a good 30 minutes, but fell behind when Matthias Ginter got away from Dennis Aogo and planted a cross on the head of Shinji Kagawa to give Dortmund the lead. The Royal Blues were not behind for long, however, as Leroy Sane - who had already gone close prior to the opening goal - teed up Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for a quick-fire equaliser. Gelsenkirchen-born Ilkay Gündogan rifled narrowly wide, before Ginter got on the end of a Henrikh Mkhitaryan corner to restore BVB's advantage late in a captivating first half.
