A week before their senior teams go head to head in the Ruhr derby at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, the BVB and FC Schalke 04 U19s will meet at the new Parkstadion in Gelsenkirchen on Sunday 18 October (kick-off 11:00 CET, live on DFB-TV).
"A derby is always a special match. But it's all about the three points. We're well prepared," said coach Mike Tullberg.
BVB go into the biggest clash of the weekend top of the A-Junior Bundesliga table. But their opponents have kicked off their campaign with two wins too, beating 1. FC Cologne 1-0 and Wuppertal 2-1. Mike Tullberg will have Youssoufa Moukoko and Göktan Gürpüz, who have overcome their recent niggles, back at his disposal.
The U17s, meanwhile, are away to Alemannia Aachen on Sunday (13:00 CET). Coach Sebastian Geppert's charges will be hoping to make amends for the 2-1 defeat against RW Essen. (wiwi)
