Eyes will be fixed on Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when the German Bundesliga club welcome fierce rivals Schalke 04 to the iconic Signal Iduna Park this weekend.
The Gabon international missed the club’s 2-1 defeat away to Stuttgart after being axed from the squad due to a reported breach of team protocol, but made his return in a midweek UEFA Champions League tie.
The 28-year-old finding the back of the net in a 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur as Dortmund’s struggles in Europe’s premier cup competition continued.
That, though, will be quickly forgotten with victory over the ‘Royal Blues’ in the The Revierderby on Saturday, as Dortmund aim to resurrect their season having initially gotten off to a blistering start.
Aubameyang has scored 16 goals in 18 appearances across all competitions this season, but hasn’t found the back of the net in Germany’s top-flight since mid-October.
