Borussia Dortmund and Schalke treated the world to one of the greatest matches in Bundesliga history when the Royal Blues completed one of sport's greatest ever comebacks after being 4-0 down at half-time at the Signal Iduna Park. This week the arch-rivals meet for another Revierderby at the Veltins-Arena with the winner having one hand on second place.

The loss of Piszczek to a knee injury in October coincided with a serious downturn in fortunes for Dortmund: an eight-game winless run which put paid to Peter Bosz’s stint at the helm. The Poland right-back provides both defensive stability and attacking impetus for BVB, who have only lost a single game this season with him in the side.
Meanwhile, the versatile Toljan has slotted in at both right and left-back since his summer arrival from Hoffenheim, contributing two assists to Piszczek’s three and popping up with a goal against Freiburg. On the other hand, World Cup-winning defender Durm has seen his career blighted by injuries in recent years, and has failed to make a single appearance for Dortmund this season.

Kehrer will have fond memories of last season’s Revierderby at the Veltins Arena, where he fired in his first Bundesliga goal to rescue a 1-1 draw for the Royal Blues. The Germany U21 international is one of the most flexible players in the Schalke squad, having been played in no fewer than eight positions since coming through the club’s youth ranks. Now more commonly deployed as part of Tedesco’s three-man defence, he has won 55 per cent of his challenges and completed 87 per cent of his passes, as well as providing a goal and an assist.
