  • Reports in Germany suggest Batshuayi may have broken his left ankle

The Revierderby never fails to deliver, and with both Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund battling for automatic Champions League qualification, today couldn't afford to be any different.

Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi could be in danger of missing the World Cup, after suffering a reported ligament damage to his ankle during Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 defeat at Schalke on Sunday.

Second-half goals from Yevhen Konoplyanka and Naldo secured victory for the Royal Blues, who bounced back from a 3-2 defeat at struggling Hamburg last weekend to open up a four-point gap on third-placed Dortmund. A one-two allowed the Dortmund players to quickly close down the ball, but it was no use given the speed and accuracy of Naldo's sensational strike, his seventh league goal of the season. His injury is a major setback for the German side's hopes of Champions League qualification, who now sit in fourth spot in the Bundesliga, level on 51 points with third-placed Bayer Leverkusen.

The loss for Dortmund sees them drop to fourth place on the table.

Knicks' Porzingis: Focused on rehab, not coaching search
He finished with a Knicks career record of 109-79. "I would be insane not to, " said Woodson, who served six seasons in Atlanta. The Knicks are looking for a new head coach following the firing of Jeff Hornacek last week after two seasons in charge.


Dortmund boss Peter Stoger said in his post-match press conference: "We hope that it is not so bad, but we have to wait for the exact investigation".

Konoplyanka broke the deadlock five minutes after the break after a mistake from Marcel Schmelzer.

Dortmund looked labored as it sought a response against the home side's well-organized defense, and Naldo settled the result late with an indirect free kick.

The hosts threatened again moments later as Amine Harit lined up a shot from distance that drifted wide of the right post, while Guido Burgstaller dragged an effort to the left of the target on 13 minutes.
