Bundesliga 2020, Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke 04 Results, Highlights: After a break of two months, Bundesliga returned on Saturday with five matches at the same time all across Germany, including the Revierderby. Lucien Favre’s men proved to dominating against their rivals Schalke as they defeated them 4-0 at an empty Signal Iduna Park.

With piped atmosphere, masks in the dugout, and elbow bumping celebrations, the derby took place under odd circumstances. After a slow start to the match, Erling Haaland broke the deadlock at the half-hour mark by an exquisite tap-in from a Thorgan Hazard cross. 15 minutes later, wingback Raphael Guerreiro doubled the lead with a low finish past Schalke’s goalkeeper Markus Schubert. In the second half, Dortmund maintained their form and grabbed two quick goals from Hazard and Guerreiro to make it 4-0 by the 63rd minute. The Black and Yellow held on to their lead till the end and moved to 54 points from 26 matches.

FT | Dortmund 4-0 Schalke

And after a slow finish to the game, the referee blows the whistle and the match is brought to a close without any injury time. Dortmund are deserved winners with a highly clinical performance, as Haaland scored the opener. Guerreiro scored on either side of Hazard's goal, and helped continue their fine run of form in the league. Schalke's failures in front of goal continue and they would be gutted from today's performance. In the end, Bundesliga is well and truly back. Football is back!

86' Matondo receives a yellow card

After Schalke's Matondo slaloms his way through the Dortmund defence, he loses the ball to Hummels who has had a brilliant match. Then he lunges in at Hakimi's ankles and gets booked. Meanwhile, Dortmund bring on veteran Marcel Schmelzer and Mario Gotze.

20:42 (IST)16 May 2020
82' Dortmund comfortably sitting deep

The game has settled somewhat here with both the teams calmed down right now. Still Schalke are looking to find a way to pull one back, and Dortmund sitting comfortably at the back for some time now. It's been a tour-de-force performance from the Black and Yellow and without the likes of Reus, Sancho, Witsel and Can, it shows how strong of a title contender they are. 

20:38 (IST)16 May 2020
78' Sancho comes on for some action

Jadon Sancho comes on for Thorgan Hazard and the Englishman will have around 15 minutes to terrorise the wounded Schalke defence. 

20:34 (IST)16 May 2020
73' Schalke still trying to get one back

Schalke are trying their best to save their pride a bit, as they get a corner, and from the resulting set-piece Salif Sane just heads the ball over the crossbar. Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki has had almost nothing to do the entire game.

68' Substitution for Dortmund

Dortmund's Leonardo Balerdi replaces Delaney, who made his first Bundesliga appearance after six months with an injury. As soon as Delaney goes to the bench, he is given a mask for the bench. 

20:23 (IST)16 May 2020
63' GUEREEEIROOO!

IT'S FOUR! What a brilliant goal by Guerreiro as he finishes with an outrageous outside-of-the-boot left-footed finish from inside of the box, after Haaland finds him after a fine piece of passing move. Schalke are looking out of options now.

55' Schalke threatens Dortmund goal

After Delaney gets booked, Schalke get an opportunity at goal as the substitute Guido Burgstaller has a pop at goal. He replaced defender Todibo, while Rabbi Matondo replaced Raman at the start of the second half. Can Schalke repeat their epic comeback of 2017?

48' HAAAAAAZARD!

DORTMUND SCORE AGAIN! Thorgan Hazard wasn't even supposed to start and now he has grabbed a goal and an assist. The front three combine well as Haaland feeds Brandt with the ball, and the former Leverkusen player squared it for the Belgian for Dortmund's third. Schalke's goalkeeper Schubert should have done better.

HT | Dortmund 2-0 Schalke

And the referee blows the whistle for half-time, and without the rapturous cheers and boos it feels kind of surreal. The Dortmund bench did their part though by clapping the boys who produced a brilliant late display in the half and secured a two-goal lead through goals from Erling Haaland and Raphael Guerreiro. 

19:48 (IST)16 May 2020
45' GUERREIROOOOOO!

DORTMUND DOUBLES THEIR LEAD! The Portuguese wingback scores his sixth goal of the season after a driving run through Schalke's last line of defence and powered a low daisy-cutter past the legs of goalkeeper Schubert.

Leipzig go a goal down

On the other hand, fellow title-challengers RB Leipzig are a goal down. A surprise goal in Leipzig as Freiburg's Manuel Gulde backheels in from a corner. Good news for Dortmund overall.

19:40 (IST)16 May 2020
36' Dortmund in the driving seat

Ever since that goal, Dortmund are in full control now with most recently Guerreiro coming close to doubling the lead after latching onto a cross from Hakimi. Schalke need a bit of a boost from somewhere. On the other hand, the opening goal was Haaland's 10th goal in 9 matches and Hazard's 11th assist of the season.
