Borussia (Dortmund) and Schalke 04 played one of the greatest bouts in the history of the Bundesliga, finishing 4:4 at Signal Iduna Park. The hosts led 4:0 to 25th minute, but in the second half the rival managed to equalize and separately missed at least two goals. After the final judging signal, typically in the spirit of the derby, the players of the two teams went into battle.

From the 72nd minute the `yellow-blacks` were with a lesser person, because Pierre-Emerico Aubameyang was expelled. Thus, the Westphalians have remained without victory for almost two months, and miners continue to perform successfully, ranking third.

At the door of Borussia was the veteran Roman Weidenfeld, after the title holder Roman Buryki was injured. The attack was again led by Aubameyang, who missed the previous Championship meeting because he was punished by the coach.

What`s new in the Westphalians was that they changed their defense building to three with security. The Gelsenkirchen team again bet on Franco di Santo and Guido Burgstales from the first minute, and the bench restored after the injury, Leon Goretzka.

The game started with two gross violations of the guests, which showed what their setting was. `Kralokosini` created the first danger, but Yevgen Konoplyanka failed to realize. But after that, there was an apocalypse at Schalke`s door. Within 25 minutes the hosts scored four hits. However, the first goal was more outrageous. In the 12th minute, the ball met Aubameyang`s hand and flopped into the net, but the judges did not see that. They did not see those at the Cologne Auxiliary Center who were looking at the controversial situations of repetition. The striker of Borussia may not have acted deliberately, but the ball would not cross the goal unless it was his hand. Then, in the 18th minute, Benjamin Stambuli alone sent the ball into the net after Nouri Shahin`s center was foul. There followed goals of Mario Goetze and Rafael Gereiro, with both major contributions being Aubameyang.

The coach of the miners Domenico Tedesco responded with a double shift in the 34th minute and at half time made his last possible.

In the 40th minute, referee Deniz Aikkonn scared Tilo Keerer after Schalke`s defender had a rough offense against Andriy Yarmolenko and had a yellow card.

If someone has left the game analyzed by upcoming football games at this stage, then there is something to regret.

In the 53rd minute, Naldo scored for Schalke, but this time the refereeing team of the `Video Assistant Referee` rightly noticed that there was an ambush that made the hunt unreal. This did not disturb the guests and they continued to attack and their efforts soon yielded results. Between the 61st and 65th minutes, Guido Burgsteller and the Amin Aritas reduced the gap to two goals and the intrigue returned. After another seven minutes, Aubameyang made stupidity, making a second yellow card and so Schalke had a numerical superiority. Daliel Khalidjuri brought Dartmund to 4:3 in the 86th minute, and Dennis Aijkon`s 7-minute exhilaration gave him even greater hopes.

In the third minute Naldo hit the ball with a head after the corner and the miracle was a fact - 4:4. And the fight did not happen
