Haaland celebrated his 10th goal in Bundesliga, in just nine games, by pointing to the stands, though there was no fans there to see the game, and then making sure he social distanced from his teammates, something the Schalke defenders were already guilty of.

Ahead of kick off the big news was Lucian Favre's side kicking off without Mario Gotze or Jadon Sancho, with both men starting on the bench.


Before half time Dortmund made it 2-0 as Raphaël Guerreiro added the second just as the first half was wrapping up.


As usual Dortmund are chasing Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, who are going for their eighth tile in-a-row, and before kick off Favre's team were four points behind their rivals.

The table toppers get their season back underway on Sunday afternoon when they travel to the capital to face Union Berlin.
