At the weekend, the two greats of the area meet in Dortmund. But the omens are special this year, because both teams are far apart in terms of sport. Will there be a big surprise in the derby?
“It’s the biggest duel in Germany. I don’t need an introduction to understand that.” This statement comes from Vedad Ibisevic and shows that the new Schalke 04 striker is ready for the Revierderby against BVB. The striker knows what’s at stake in Signal-Iduna-Park on Saturday from 6.30 p.m. Not only in the table, but also in the region. Schalke are without a win for 20 games in a row. A disgrace that the miners want to end as soon as possible.
But with Borussia Dortmund you have a tough opponent in front of your chest who is qualitatively much better. The black and yellow are one step ahead of the royal blues in almost every position.
But Schalke could play this outsider role in the cards. The miners felt comfortable in their position as underdogs in the last derbies in Dortmund. In 2019, for example, there was a 4-2 at Borussia. The coach at the time was Huub Stevens. Schalke now wants to repeat that. The current coach Manuel Baum believes in his chance and describes in the video above or herewhy he thinks a surprise is possible.
