Reports in Germany suggest Batshuayi may have broken his left ankle

Schalke picked up a good win over Borussia Dortmund in the Revierderby in Sunday's Bundesliga action.

"It's something special. A derby win at this point in the season is a highlight", Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel said. "It was a deserved victory".

Even some of the Dortmund faithful couldn't hide their appreciation.

Schalke won the game 2-0 thanks to goals from Yevhen Konoplyanka and Naldo but the injury to Batshuayi is a more pressing concern.

With the result, runners-up Schalke opened up a four-point gap to third-placed Bayer Leverkusen, while Dortmund slipped into 4th place.

"We need to look at what went wrong in the first 45 to 60 minutes today", Reus told Sky.

"We played a great first half".
