The Bundesliga restarts this weekend with a tantalizing local derby - don't miss a moment by following our Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke 04 live stream guide below.

Dortmund were in fantastic form before the pandemic halted the season, sitting just four points behind leaders Bayern Munich and they'll be looking to maintain their title challenge with a home win on Saturday in the Revierderby. Schalke also have plenty to play for - despite having failed to win any of their last seven league matches- they're still very much in the mix for Europa League qualification.

The unexpected lockdown break appears to have been a boon for Schalke as it has allowed key trio Salif Sane, Suat Serdar, and Daniel Caligiuri to all recover from injuries with all three players expected to figure in Saturday's game.

The same can't be said for Dortmund who may be without Emre Can and Alex Witsel, with both players picking up knocks in training. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke 04 no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
