FT | Borussia Dortmund 4 - 0 FC Schalke

At the end of the 90 minutes, Dortmund emerge victorious, and their first match back was more a stroll in the park than the fiercely contested derby encounter that we were promised. Schalke, for the most part, looked vastly inferior, and they couldn't cope with the blistering pace of Dortmund's counter-attacks. With this win. Dortmund find themselves just a point behind league leaders Bayern Munich, who play Union Berlin tomorrow.

60' | TSG 1899 Hoffenheim 0 - 2 Hertha Berlin

While we've been engrossed with the magnificent football Dortmund have been playing, Hertha Berlin have scored a couple of quick-fire goals, to take a two-goal lead against Hoffenheim. The goals came at the 58' and 60' mark, with Kevin Akpoguma scoring an own goal and Vedad Ibisevic getting scoring at the same end shortly after.

63' | Borussia Dortmund 4 - 0 FC Schalke

Another counterattack, another goal. Raphael Guerreiro picks up the ball 40-odd yards from the Schalke goal, drives forward, and then exchanges a cute one-two with Erling Haaland, before finishing off the move with an exquisite shot from the outside of his boot. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.

61' | Borussia Dortmund 3 - 0 FC Schalke

Schalke are in a difficult situation at the moment. They have to commit more men forward if they have any hope of rescuing points, but that leaves them open, and Dortmund are cutting them to ribbons on the counter. The omnipresent Erling Haaland is chasing down each and every long ball with tiresome tenacity, and at the moment, it doesn't look like a comeback is on the cards.
