Schalke 04 must remain calm and concentrated to get something out of Saturday's Revierderby against Borussia Dortmund, says Alexander Nübel.

Speaking in an interview ahead of Saturday's derby at Veltins-Arena, the Schalke 04 captain told the club's website:


"The feeling before a derby is different than before a 'normal' Bundesliga match.

"We're going to need the sort of passion and mentality that we have already shown in a lot of games this season. Nevertheless, we don't want to get carried away.

"We will need to remain calm and focused despite all the emotion if we want to get a result. We also know we can rely on the fans to support us and give us an extra boost," Nübel said.

Schalke won the last Revierderby in April, beating their rivals 4-2 at Signal Iduna Park in a memorable match.
