Borussia Dortmund humiliates FC Schalke 04 in the Revierderby: BVB stars suffer with their arch rivals

When Erling Haaland and Co. danced rows of circles in front of the empty guest curve and even made waves, the Schalke had long since disappeared with drooping heads in the cabin.

With a clear 4: 0 (2: 0) in the 180th Revierderby, Borussia Dortmund pushed their arch-rivals even closer to the abyss. Nine points are now up to 16th place. It could have been the last derby for a long time.

“We scored the goals at the right time,” said BVB captain Marco Reus at “Sky”. After the 3-2 win in the Champions League against Sevilla, they wanted to “set an example”, said Emre Can: “This is the most emotional game of the season. We wanted to fight. We did well and deservedly scored three points.”

Edin Terzic was also beaming after his first derby as head coach: “If you win here as Borussia, then of course that is particularly good.”

BVB stars feel sorry for Schalke

 The  fact that the result turned out so high in the end was of course a satisfaction for the Dortmunders, who have had difficult weeks themselves and continue to worry about qualifying for the Champions League again.

But somehow there was also a bit of melancholy in the statements of the black and yellow. Dortmund almost felt sorry for the humiliated rival. A relegation of the Royal Blues would be “a shame,” said Reus: “©

 The  Bundesliga and we too live from this explosiveness and this fire. Hope dies last. If I could choose, I would leave it in.”

“I wish you all the best. Schalke are a good club,” said Can. Words that you don’t know after a derby, but which reflect how things are now with Schalke.

 The  fourth descent after 1981, 1983 and 1989 is getting closer and closer. “It’s a bitter thing to lose so much against arch rivals,” said a disappointed Christian Gross after the final whistle. To the already difficult situation there was also bad luck against Dortmund.

Schalke on the ground: “A lot went against us”

Shortly before kick-off, Rio World Champion Shkodran Mustafi was injured, and goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann was also injured after half an hour. ©

 The  tour by Jadon Sancho (42nd) was initiated by Schalke Benjamin Stambouli with a capital mistake. S04 itself missed some good chances.

“A lot went against us,” said Gross. Michael Langer, the Schalke number three in goal, who came to his second Bundesliga appearance because the Frankfurt loaner Frederik Rönnow was injured anyway, was “sad, disappointed and angry. It’s an extremely shitty situation, to put it in a nutshell bring to.”

Erling Haaland (45th / 79th) and Raphael Guerreiro (60th) sealed with the other hits the third Revierderby defeat of Schalke in a row. How deep the frustration was afterwards is also shown by the reaction of some S04 fans who, according to information from “Sport1”, gathered to storm the West Gate at the main entrance of the Veltins Arena after the final whistle. ©

 The  nerves are on edge.

In Brackel, where the BVB training center is located, around 400 fans prepared a Bengalo reception for the players on their return in the team bus.

Gross: “We will fight until the end”


 The  overall situation does something to you,” said S04 goalkeeper Langer: “But we don’t give up and want to keep fighting.” Gross was also combative: “We believe until the bitter end that it might still be possible. We will fight until the end.”

With “encouragement” he wanted to get the miners back up for the duel against Stuttgart next Saturday: “©

 The re were also good scenes.” Slogans that you already know at Schalke from the past few weeks. But what else can they do?

Twelve games remain in order to achieve the impossible. That would even please the stars of BVB.
