Saturday’s Ruhr derby between the two Bundesliga sides was one of the most memorable in recent history.

Dortmund fired themselves into what seemed an unassailable 4-0 lead within 25 minutes at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, with strikes from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mario Gotze, Raphael Guerreiro and a Benjamin Stambouli own goal seemingly securing three points for the hosts.

But a remarkable second-half comeback, capped with a 94th-minute equaliser from defender Naldo, meant the visitors escaped their rivals' home with a point in hand.

Schalke aren't in a hurry to forget the thrilling encounter, and have since released a t-shirt to immortalise the occasion.

The tee, which reads ’Derbysieger’ (translated as ‘Derby Winners’, oddly enough), appeared on the club’s official store for a few days after the clash and was priced at €19.95. 

Schalke current sit three points above Dortmund in the Bundesliga table.
