The midfielder is brimming with confidence
ahead of Sunday's Revierderby at the Signal
Iduna Park and does not believe his side have
to alter their style much
Ilkay Gundogan is confident Borussia Dortmund
will claim all three points in Sunday's
Bundesliga match against rivals Schalke.

Dortmund sit second in the table after 11
games, six points ahead of fifth-placed Schalke
and Gundogan is keen to widen the gap in this
weekend's Revierderby.

"We want to leave our mark on the game. We
have a way of playing that's working really well
at the moment, and we know what we have to
do," Gundogan told the official Bundesliga

"We don't need to change much in our game; at
most we just need to tighten a few things here
and there to be able to produce another top-
quality performance. That's what we'll be
looking to do, and I think we'll end up winners
on Sunday.

"It won't be the first time that we've been
favourites heading into a derby game. But it's in
exactly these types of matches where you're
the favourite that things can change very
quickly, so it'll be really important that we give
absolutely everything on Sunday and play the
game with our hearts on our sleeves.

"We're all really looking forward to it and the
anticipation is building. We've been in really
good form recently and the derby comes at the
perfect time for us."

Dortmund recorded a 3-0 win over Schalke
when they last met at Signal Iduna Park back in
