Celebrating the joys of a match day, a derby no less, Christoph Jendral offers a snippet on the senses from Signal Iduna Park - the home of Borussia Dortmund and a match up against Shalke. Postcard pictures.

The true brilliance of football, the passion, the people and most of all the party - on a crispy day heading into the depths of winter, still that yellow burns bright. It's incredible, the power of a handful of photographs that bring the excitement of a match day to the fore.

Some description

As Dortmund managed to leave with a 3-2 victory on home soil v Shalke, no doubt the majority of the 80,000+ fans would have left elated - a Sunday roast of entertainment with all the trimmings. A rump of goals, an assist from the potatoes and that perfect flowing gravy of football - we're a month and a bit early for Christmas but these fans just had it served up. Party hats and all.
