Crucially, Sunday's convincing 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund took them four points clear of their arch-rivals, who are now slumped in fourth behind Bayer Leverkusen.

Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann was nearly untested in the home goal, bar a simple save from a Marco Reus free-kick, as Domenico Tedesco's men successfully stifled their opponents.

Schalke, now second in the German top-flight, took the lead just after break, with Yevhen Konoplyanka capitalising on an error from Marcel Schmelzer.

Dortmund made a flying start in the reverse fixture but Schalke began on top this time around, Alessandro Schopf forcing a fine save from Burki, who got down well to his right.

"We hope that it is not so bad", said coach Peter Stöger in the post-match press conference. His injury is a major setback for the German side's hopes of Champions League qualification, who now sit in fourth spot in the Bundesliga, level on 51 points with third-placed Bayer Leverkusen. The defender hammered the ball past Dortmund's ineffective wall and inside the left post again.

Schalke looked more likely to score in the first half, though Dortmund's Marco Reus went closest when he drew a good save from Ralf Faehrmann with a free kick.

Konoplyanka broke the deadlock five minutes after the break after a mistake from Marcel Schmelzer.

Dortmund's disappointing afternoon ended with Michy Batshuayi being stretchered off in injury time.
