Schalke stuns Dortmund with its biggest Bundesliga comeback

Schalke stuns Dortmund with its biggest Bundesliga comeback”

The draw kept Schalke three points ahead of Dortmund.

There was more misery for Dortmund, without a league win since September, as top striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who had scored one goal and set up another, was sent off in the second half for a foul that earned him a second yellow card.

Dortmund coach Peter Bosz is under increasing pressure as his side are now winless in their last six league games. You just feel disappointment.

"At halftime I honestly did not believe we could still get a point from the derby", Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco said.

The biggest win in a Ruhr derby - 10-0 to Schalke in 1940 - looked under threat when Dortmund raced into a 4-0 lead. Faehrmann had appeared to be goading the home fans before Sahin intervened.

Much worse was to come with Schalke defender Benjamin Stambouli spectacularly volleying an own goal in the 18th minute before Mario Goetze headed in an Aubameyang cross two minutes later.

The Frenchman was then beaten for pace on the flank by Aubameyang, before the Gabon worldwide fired in a superb cross for Mario Goetze to head in the third on 20 minutes.

With Schalke in complete shock, Raphael Guerreiro completed their first half onslaught with a fine volley in the 25th.

Tedesco reacted with a double substitution, including Leon Goretzka for Weston McKennie, who had been booked early on. Kehrer didn't emerge for the second half as Tedesco brought Matija Nastasic on for his final substitution.

But Guido Burgstaller pulled a goal back for Schalke in the second half as he lobbed Roman Weidenfeller with a header.

Aubameyang was given his marching orders after clattering Harit and Dortmund were barely holding on when midfielder Daniel Caligiuri buried Schalke's third on 86 minutes.

He powered home a header, sparking wild celebrations, but tensions boiled over with the scores level for the first time.

The game ended with a melee involving both sets of players before Dortmund's Nuri Sahin and Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Faehrmann were booked by referee Deniz Aytekin.

RB Leipzig are second on 26 after their 2-0 win over Werder Bremen.

Also, Augsburg came from behind to beat visiting Wolfsburg 2-1, Bayer Leverkusen won 1-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt, and Freiburg defeated visiting Mainz 2-1.
