Borussia Dortmund banked all three points against the Schalke in a 1-0 victory on Saturday, at the Signal Iduna Park. Dortmund were looking to get back to winning ways after losing 3-0 to RB Leipzig in their last match. Schalke had been hopeful of extending their winning run, after a 3-1 victory against Bochum. Dortmund are now in 1st place, with 15 points from 7 matches, while Schalke sit in 14th, with 6 points from 7.

Substitutions for Dortmund included Giovanni Reyna, Karim Adeyemi, Youssoufa Moukoko, Emre Can and Thorgan Hazard for Marco Reus, Donyell Malen, Anthony Modeste, Julian Brandt and Giovanni Reyna, respectively. Schalke brought on Sebastian Polter, Kenan Karaman, Alex Kral and Rodrigo Zalazar Martinez, to replace Simon Terodde, Jordan Larsson, Marius Bulter and Tom Krauss.
