Say “Hallo” to Germany Fantasy’s first ever Derby Challenge! We start with a bang: Schalke 04 vs Borussia Dortmund, two teams fighting for a better position on Bundesliga, and also rivals of the infamous Revier Derby. This ferocious match against one another will happen this Saturday, the 20th, at 17h30 (GMT) at the Veltins-Arena! Create a winning team here: https://fantasy.realfevr.com/t/DERBYCDE
Schalke 04 seems to be living up to their name (as the team’s name means “rogue” or “naughty boys”) and not in the good way. It’s no secret that the club’s performance hasn’t impressed anyone in a long time, and current events only seem to rub salt on their wounds, as it has been said they are “in the midst of a historically bad year”. They find themselves in 18th place with 14 losses, 6 draws and 1 measly win. They play at home, and that sense of security might just be the spark The Royal Blues need to secure a much needed win.
Borussia Dortmund isn’t doing badly when compared to their opponent, but things could be better as they sit in 6th place, barely glancing at the podium and we look at the numbers: 10 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses, we can see why that is. Die hard fans will have to chant ‘Echte Liebe’ — the club’s new motto — much higher to ignite some passion on the The Black and Yellows! One thing is for sure, they need this win to climb up the scoreboard.
Will Schalke 04 wake up and rise from the shadows or is Borussia Dortmund going to push them down even further? Find out this Saturday at 17h30 (GMT) who will be the winner of this Revier Derby Challenge!
- Schalke 04 or Borussia Dortmund?
- Ralf Fährmann or Marwin Hitz?
- Sead Kolašinac or Raphaël Guerreiro?
- Amine Harit or Jadon Sancho?
- Matthew Hoppe or Erling Håland?

Before you take off, here’s the initial promo Derby Challenge article that will give you all the explanations and rules:
Derby Challenge: a new game model, much like a Daily Fantasy, where you compete in a single event, creating a team for a specific game (or two, max), with limited choices and all the adrenaline just jam-packed into 90 minutes.
In more practical terms, to play RealFevr’s newest competition Derby Challenge you’ll need to create a new team when one is announced (Derby Challenge is not always available) and the most common rules of Classic Leagues will apply here (auto-subs, manual subs, scoring, leaderboards, etc) and will run side-by-side with their “core competitions”, Liga NOS Virtual, England Fantasy and other options available at RealFevr. On top, there will be a leaderboard for the sum of all the Derby Challenges throughout the season.
In spite of the majority of rules being the same as the classic mode of England Fantasy, there are some specific Derby Challenge rules that you must be aware of, we will state them here:
A player is only able to register one team on Derby Challenge league;
The player will have a maximum budget of 120M;
There are no limit of players from each club to make your team;
To use the “automatic replacements” feature, you can only make changes on your team 15 minutes before de beginning of the (first) match of Derby challenge. After that time, the feature will be disabled;
The price of players opposite of England Fantasy league (that is a continuous duration competition), won’t have price variations during the season.
