Borussia Dortmund host Schalke on Tuesday in the 156th edition of the Ruhr derby . BVB won the away leg last fall 3-1, but they will have it all to do as they take on With so many clubs in such a small (under 4500 square km) and densely populated area, football became almost a religion for the locals.

Two of the biggest rivalries in world football will dominate the weekend's action in Europe, with the first Clasico of the season being followed by the Ruhr derby between Schalke sacked coach David Wagner after their poor start this season followed a long winless run at the end of the last campaign.

Dortmund-Schalke, the passionate "Ruhr derby", will have a smell of sulfur on Saturday (6.30 p.m.): the two clubs are, for different reasons, in crisis, and a defeat could have consequences, especially in Dortmund.

Instead of an erupting "Yellow Wall", Borussia will have to be content for this fifth day of the Bundesliga with 300 spectators, wisely distributed throughout the stadium, due to coronavirus.

The Yellow and Black, tied for third with Munich and one point behind the leader Leipzig, would however need some extra soul.

After their poor performance Wednesday in the Champions League in Rome (3-1 defeat against Lazio), the criticisms that overwhelm them for two seasons have resurfaced: despite a brilliant squad, the team has lost its fighting spirit, and the Swiss coach Lucien Favre is accused of being unable to instill the missing passion in his troops.

"In Rome, we scrupulously respected the social distance in defense," squeaked the sporting director Michael Zorc, in a fit of biting irony. "Against Schalke, we want to show a reaction: combat, commitment and emotion". Three virtues too often forgotten in Dortmund in recent seasons.

Points lost, while Borussia leaves largely favorite, would destabilize Favre even more, very hard attacked by the commentators, even if his leaders support him fondly from the start.

The Schalke fans would have to wait for another 21 minutes for the chance to cheer again, as First it is the Revier derby , as Borussia Dortmund host Schalke . You know all about Der Klassiker, but this is It's one of Germany's oldest footballing rivalries, and it splits the Ruhr district (and in some cases

And there’s certainly no worse feeling than a derby defeat. Where there is joy, sorrow is not too far away. They are the emotions that are part and parcel of a game between big rivals like Dortmund and Schalke . At the end of the day, those emotions are part of the reason why we all love football…

Côté Schalke, a victory in the derby, considered by many fans to be the most important game of the year, would be lightning on a dark night.

The club remain on 20 consecutive games without a win in the Bundesliga, and lag behind four days in 17th and penultimate position with only one point, in a relegation position.

Certainly the coach Manuel Baum, who has just been appointed at the end of September to replace the dismissed David Wagner, is not yet in danger. But the team, which has already conceded 16 goals and returned only 2, has completely lost confidence in itself.

"It would be a huge story if we were able to put the same passion against Dortmund as against Union Berlin," Baum said on Friday.

Last week, Schalke took their only point of the season with a 1-1 draw at home against Union, after falling. This is to say if the ambitions of the "royal blue" do not go very far. And if this derby will be, for once, a derby of fear.
