GERMANY'S Bundesliga is finally ready to resume after a lengthy pause – with the always-fun Revierderby kicking off on Saturday between title-chasing Dortmund and their local rivals Schalke.

Norwegian striker Erling Braut Haaland is the name on everyone's lips with his nine goals in eight Bundesliga appearances this season, and we'll also be keeping an eye on England whizz kid Jadon Sancho.

Right, let's get things cracking then, shall we?

  • BORUSSIA DORTMUND TO WIN AND OVER 2.5 GOALS, 5/2 WITH BETWAY (CLAIM HERE) – Dortmund rank as the Bundesliga's best home side (W9, D3, L0), and boast a goals return of 3.42 goals per match thanks to some of world football's most exciting attacking talent, including Erling Braut Haaland and Jadon Sancho.
  • ERLING BRAUT HAALAND TO SCORE INSIDE THE FIRST 10 MINUTES, 10/1 WITH BETWAY (CLAIM HERE) – The man of the moment will be hungry for goals after such a time away, and famous scored inside 20 minutes after coming off the bench in his first four Dortmund appearances.

The Revierderby between Dortmund and Schalke is one of the biggest and best of German football's rivalries.

Casual fans will already know quite a bit about Dortmund's awesome attacking power this season, with Haaland the name on everyone's lips at the moment with his nine goals in eight Bundesliga appearances.

Sancho is also well-known to English fans and is perhaps one of the best in the world right now; he's notched an incredible 14 goals and 15 assists across 23 league games this season. He also scored the winning goal at the Veltins-Arena last season, in his first start against Schalke.

Dortmund are absolutely flying this season and are well in with a shout to win their first Bundesliga title since 2011/12 – currently adrift of table-toppers Bayern by just four points.

They're also on a great run at the moment – if you ignore their Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain – enjoying four straight Bundesliga wins, with strong first-halves becoming a bit of a theme for Dortmund  so far, with the Black and Yellows leading at the break 13 times this term – more than any other top-flight team.

BVB also boast a brilliant home-record – with nine wins, three draws and no defeats, all the while averaging 3.42 goals per match.

On the blue side and in stark contrast to their Ruhr neighbours, Schalke are in the middle of a horrible run that has seen them win just once in ten Bundesliga games.

However, first goalscorer enthusiasts should take note that Schalke remain unbeaten this season when scoring first, although they've only  recovered to win just twice on the eight occasions when they conceded the opening goal.

Despite being the less dominant of the Ruhr clubs in recent years, Schalke have only lost once in the last eight Revierderby clashes – winning twice and drawing five times, including their 4-2 win last season.


A little more for a little more?

  • Get an extra round at the pub for the fridge tonight: Haaland to score inside the first 10 minutes – 10/1
