Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke in the Revierderby is one of six Bundesliga matches scheduled for Saturday. Although this local rivalry will be played behind close doors, it shouldn’t lack the intensity that derby clashes are famous for.

Dortmund’s teenage sensation Erling Håland has scored nine goals in his first eight Bundesliga matches, while England superstar Jadon Sancho has scored 14 league goals and made a further 15 in another dazzling campaign. These two make Dortmund the heavy favourites, but Schalke have only lost one of their last eight meetings with Dortmund so this won’t be a walk in the park.
