defeated

Schalke

1-0 thanks to a goal from

Youssoufa Moukoko

, who set a record for the youngest player to score in a Bundesliga Revierderby.

The brilliant youngster, who has only been alive for 17 years and 301 days, scored the game-winning goal on Saturday at

Signal Iduna Park

, putting Borussia Dortmund atop the league.

The Black and Yellow's overpowering efforts were not in vain thanks to his essential intervention in the 79th minute. Due to Bayern Munich's unexpected loss to Augsburg, Edin Terzic's team now sits atop the table. However, early-season pacesetters Union Berlin and Freiburg still have games to play this weekend.

With the win, Dortmund extended their streak against Schalke to four games (they had previously won eight in a row against them between 1964 and 1967).

But victory came with a price, as Dortmund's captain

Marco Reus

was injured in the first half, which might be a major setback for Dortmund and Germany ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
