Watch: Stunning Scenes As Schalke Come Back From 4-0 Down In Dortmund
By Mikey Traynor

One of the biggest games in the Bundesliga calendar, the meeting of Ruhr district rivals Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 in the Revierderby rarely fails to disappoint.

On Saturday afternoon, however, we were treated to one of the best and most dramatic games ever seen in the storied fixture as Schalke managed to come back and secure a 4-4 draw despite being 4-0 down as late as the 60th minute.

It was all going so well for Dortmund too.

Having taken the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 12th minute, they were 4-0 up 12 minutes later as they blitzed Schalke who did not look like the knew what hit them.

The game then settled for a bit before everything came to life again in the final 40 minutes of play.

A goal from Guido Burgstaller gave the visitors hope, and when a second goal five minutes later was closely followed by a sending off for Aubameyang who was shown a second yellow card, panic stations began to set in for those playing in yellow.

Eventually, in the 94th minute, defender Naldo powered home bullet header to spark wild celebrations in one of the most dramatic comebacks for some time.

Absolutely incredible.

Sevilla coming back from three goals down at home to Liverpool during the week was remarkable, but for Schalke to overturn a four-goal deficit away from home is something else.

Spare a thought for Jurgen Klopp, who likely would have been checking the score as his side prepare to take on Chelsea.
