Dortmund humiliates Schalke in a 4 nil thrill

Bundesliga returned today with a derby match between Dortmund and Schalke.

Haaland picked up where he left off by scoring the league’s first goal, and his 13th in 12 appearances for Dortmund, following a two-month suspension in a Revierderby played out in an empty Signal Iduna Park.

Raphael Guerreiro doubled the hosts lead just before the interval following an error from the out-of-sorts Markus Schubert, and Thorgan Hazard beat the 21-year-old goalkeeper the 48th minute.

Guerreiro got a second after a one-two with Haaland as Dortmund closed the gap on leaders Bayern Munich, who face Union Berlin on Sunday, to one point.

Sancho is brought on for Hazard, who limps off the field after picking up a knock. That is a worrying sign for Dortmund boss Favre on what has otherwise been a very positive first day back at the office.
