    On Saturday afternoon, Dortmund and Schalke go head-to-head at the Signal Iduna Park in the Ruhr derby, which is a vital clash for both teams.

    Dortmund are second place in the Bundesliga table, a point behind league leaders Bayern Munich in the race for the German top-flight title.

    BVB have been in good form of late in the Bundesliga, winning five of their last six league matches. A 5-0 mauling at title-rivals Bayern Munich was the only blip in recent games, although the defeat could prove costly for Lucien Favre’s team’s chances of claiming the title.

    A big factor in Dortmund’s recent good form has been the fact that they have scored at least twice in five of their last six league outings.

    BVB have also won nine of their last ten Bundesliga games at the Signal Iduna Park while remaining undefeated in 15 home matches in the German top-flight. Lucien Favre’s team has been prolific on home soil in the Bundesliga, scoring at least twice in their last 15 matches.

    Schalke are enduring a poor campaign in the Bundesliga, sitting 15th place in the German top-flight, six points clear of the relegation play-off spot.

    The visitors have claimed just one victory from their last 12 matches in the Bundesliga, suffering four defeats in their last six matches in the German top-flight.

    Schalke have struggled defensively of late, conceding at least twice in five of their last eight outings in the German top-flight.

    The visitors have claimed just one win from their last six matches on their travels in the Bundesliga, losing three of their last five away matches. They have however picked up four points from their last two league games on their travels.

    Forebet predicts that Dortmund will record a vital victory in a low-scoring encounter.
