A 4-0 win over Schalke 04 in the 26th Bundesliga round of 16 May helped Dortmund win all 3 points at home, thereby shortening the gap with the top team Bayern Munich to 1 point.

After a 2-month suspension for Covid-19, the German Bundesliga returned on the evening of May 16 with a series of rounds of 26, including a remarkable match between Dortmund and Schalke 04 at Signal-Iduna. -Park. 

The home side needs to win 1 victory to chase hope for the top team of Bayern Munich when the distance between the two teams is 4 points.

By the end of the first half, Raphaël Guerreiro doubled the home team's lead with a dangerous cross-shot from Brandt's assist.

Just into the second half, Brandt created again, but this time for Hazard to score. At this point, it was all over for Schalke when the visitors were down 3 goals and continued to show a feeble way of play from the beginning of the match. All 90 minutes, the visitors did not have a dangerous situation in front of goal keeper Bürki.

In the 63rd minute, Raphaël Guerreiro completed a brace of his own after a beautiful combination with Håland thereby setting a 4-0 victory for Dortmund.
