Rahman Baba and Sead Kolasinac both have a chance of starting at left-back for Schalke 04. Yevhen Konoplyanka and Alessandro Schöpf compete for the spot on the left wing. Up front, the experienced Klaas-Jan Huntelaar could start instead of Franco di Santo in the derby.

With Marcel Schmelzer and Raphael Guerreiro still injured, Felix Passlack has to help out at left back again for Dortmund. Christian Pulisic and Ousmane Dembélé should start on the flanks again, with most other wingers still out injured. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed their match in midweek with a calf problem but is expected to recover in time for this match.

Dortmund are without a Bundesliga win in three straight matches and their injury crisis has not improve. They went 120 minutes before beating Union Berlin on penalties in the DFB Pokal in midweek and injuries have left them short in certain positions.

Schalke have picked up all of their seven Bundesliga points in their last three matches and are on the way up. They beat Nürnberg in 90 minutes in a challenging cup game in midweek and haqve gained confidence in time for the derby.

Expect this Ruhrderby to be a very intense game. Dortmund have home advantage, but Schalke travel to the Signal-Iduna-Park in strong form.
