Borussia Dortmund 4 – Schalke 4
The craziest match in the big leagues in Europe on Saturday was in Germany.
Everything seemed to be going perfectly for Borussia Dortmund against Schalke in the first half.
BVB, who are struggling under boss Peter Bosz, took a 4-0 lead against Schalke in the Ruhr derby after just 25 minutes.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened, Benjamin Stambouli scored an own goal, MArio Gotze headed in the third, while Raphael Guerreiro volleyed in the fourth.
But in the second half, Schalke remarkably hit back.
Goals from Guido Burgstaller, Amine Harit, Daniel Caligiuri and Naldo saw the Royal Blues level the match 4-4.
To compound matters for Dortmund, Aubameyang was sent off in the match after he collected two bookings.

Liverpool, Chelsea & Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The big news on Monday morning is that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants to leave Dortmund in January.
Bild broke the news, while the Daily Mail have picked up on the story with the following headline:
Borussia Dortmund ready to cut losses with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after striker ‘ruined everything’ in derby, putting Liverpool and Chelsea on alert.
But how likely is it that Aubameyang moves to either Premier League club?
Aubameyang was up for sale in the summer as well, but no clubs pulled the trigger on the deal.

That said, Antonio Conte has been calling for Chelsea to make big signings in January. Could Aubameyang fit the bill?
Liverpool, meanwhile, are stocked with creative players, but does Jurgen Klopp really have a goalscorer at Anfield? Roberto Firmino, many would argue, isn’t that sort of player.
For the record, Aubameyang is under contract with BVB until 2020. That means any deal for the Gabonese international won’t be cheap.
Aubameyang is the second top scorer in the Bundesliga with 11 goals so far this campaign.
