Game Preview

The German Bundesliga returns after a hiatus of nearly two months, and it does so with one of the biggest games in the schedule as Borussia Dortmund host Schalke 04 in a new edition of the Revierderby. Despite both sides having plenty of motivation to defeat their rivals, there's a lot at stake if we take a quick look at the standings. Dortmund sit in second place with 51 points, and a win could put them closer to Bayern Munich – Die Roten sit at the top of the table with 55. Meanwhile, Schalke have 37 points, and even though they are quite far from the title race, a win could solidify their position towards clinching a 2020-21 UEFA Europa League berth. The previous meeting between these two clubs ended in a stalemate, and for what it's worth, Dortmund have won just one of their last five matches against Schalke (W1, D2, L2).

Borussia Dortmund: W4, L1

Schalke 04: D2, L3
