Dortmund 4-0 Schalke: Erling Haaland stars as BVB thrash derby rivals in Bundesliga return.


Borussia Dortmund crushed Revierderby rivals Schalke 4-0 as the Bundesliga returned on Saturday.

Erling Haaland started where he left off with a deft finish to hand injury-hit Dortmund the lead after 29 minutes at a near-empty Westfalenstadion, with no fans present due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Schalke 04 had started brightly but never really got going, and Raphael Guerreiro’s low effort just before half-time knocked the wind out of the visitors’ sails after goalkeeper Markus Schubert’s poor clearance gave BCB the opportunity to strike.

Thorgan Hazard – brother of Real Madrid star Eden – had set up Haaland’s opener, and then got in on the action himself with a strong drive from just outside the area three minutes after the restart, though Schubert will feel he was beaten far too easily.

As expected, the pace of the game slowed in the latter stages, and Dortmund added a fourth 23 minutes from time as Haaland got an assist for Guerreiro’s second of the game.

Jadon Sancho was named among Dortmund’s subs due to a slight calf injury but was given a run out towards the end with the game as good as over.

With five substitutes per team allowed, the end of the game resembled a summer-friendly more than a heated local derby – but teams and fans (at home) will be relieved that the Bundesliga’s return passed without any major hitches.
