150th Ruhr Derby Highlighted By Surly Mascot, Inappropriate Mask And One Lonely Fan

Schalke and Borussia Dortmund contested a fierce Bundesliga derby match over the weekend, and these photographs do it justice.

The 150th meeting between Ruhr-based clubs Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 ended in a 1-1 draw at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, but the match was not without its fair share of wonderful moments. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave the visitors the lead in the 53rd-minute, but Schalke academy project Thilo Kehrer scored his first-ever Schalke goal in the 77th to split the spoils. Here’s how it all went down.
