Erling Haaland scored twice as Borussia Dortmund sent rival Schalke another step closer to relegation with a 4-0 win in the Ruhr derby.

Jadon Sancho broke the deadlock in the 42nd, then floated in a cross for Haaland to score with a spectacular scissor kick three minutes later.

Schalke responded with a good start to the second half – American Matthew Hoppe hitting the post – but Raphael Guerreiro effectively decided the result with a goal on the hour-mark.

Jude Bellingham crossed for Haaland's second in the 79th. It was the Norwegian's 17th goal in 17 Bundesliga appearances this season.

Dortmund players celebrated their third consecutive derby win in front of the empty stand where their supporters would usually sit in non-pandemic times.

Schalke remained last with nine points from 22 rounds, nine points behind Bielefeld in the playoff place with 12 rounds to play. Bielefeld has played a game less.

"I hope they stay in the league," Dortmund defender Emre Can said of Schalke.
