For the first time since 2008, the¬†Revierderby¬†featured a season’s worth of draws. Shinji Kagawa assisted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Dortmund’s 53rd minute opener, but 20-year-old Thilo Kehrer scored his first senior goal to earn Schalke a point.

USMNT phenom Christian Pulisic played the final three minutes for BVB, coming on for Kagawa.

RB Leipzig 4-0 Darmstadt

Naby Keita now has six goals and seven assists in his brief Bundesliga career, as Leipzig keeps steadying the ship. The hosts led 2-0 before Darmstadt’s Sandro Sirigu took a 72nd minute red card.

A huge win in the relegation race got a nice assist from USMNT forward Bobby Wood, as Hamburg led early before getting a late winner from Lewis Holtby.
