Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi could be in danger of missing the World Cup, after suffering a reported ligament damage to his ankle during Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 defeat at Schalke on Sunday.

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

"We played a great first half".

Both sides staged a lively start into the clash, and Alessandro Schoepf created the first chance of the game after testing Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Buerki with a long range effort in the 5th minute.

Yet with eight minutes to play, Schalke were awarded a free-kick around 30 metres from goal. Marco Pjaca tipped the ball to Caligiuri, who stopped it for Naldo.

As the match progressed, Dortmund pressed passive Schalke into the defense. Bayer Leverkusen and the under-fire Dortmund round out the top four, four points behind today's victors.

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

Bremen looked the more risky side in the first half and they took the lead on 28 minutes.

The hosts could have doubled their lead 10 minutes later, as Milot Rashica and Zlatko Junuzovic forced two saves in quick succession from Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi. Winding his way through the Bremen back line, the young Englishman whipped a fierce shot past Jiri Pavlenka to level the scores.

With the draw, Leipzig climb on the 5th place, eyeing for a berth in UEFA Europa League while Bremen continue on the 12th position of the table.
