Schalke 2-0 Borussia Dortmind

Peter Stoger’s BVB honeymoon is over, and the manager will be under fire after a derby loss in Gelsenkirchen which featured a stunning goal from Naldo.

The Brazilian made it 2-0 with a hammered finish on Sunday, adding to Yehven Konoplyanka’s opener and sending Schalke four points clear of third-place Bayer Leverkusen and fourth-place BVB.

Here’s Schalke boss Domenico Tedesco: “I’m really happy for the team and for our fans. We wanted to show a reaction after the Hamburg defeat, and we succeeded. I have to praise every player today.”

McKennie played 18 minutes off the bench for Schalke, while BVB’s Pulisic went 90 minutes and covered more ground than any teammate and only behind Schalke’s Guido Burgstaller and Alessandro Schopf for the game.

Bayern Munich 5-1 Borussia Monchengladbach (Saturday)

Jupp Heycknes’ Bavarians have already won the league and spent the midweek cruising to a Champions League semifinal, but that doesn’t mean they’ll rest on their laurels.

Down 1-0 on a Josip Drmic goal, Bayern rattled off goals from Sandro Wagner (2), David Alaba, Thiago Alcantara, and Robert Lewandowski (of course, his 27th of the season) to finish the weekend 20 points clear of the field.
