Schalke has been doing well in recent weeks as a German last week. They went unbeaten in six matches and kept five clean sheets. Neighbors Dortmund were therefore welcomed with full gallantry at the Veltens Arena.

The home team struggled mightily, but it was clear that Dortmund had the best performance in their ranks. The guests dominated the match, although Schalke was the first to create the best chance after the clumsy miss of the ball by Hummels. Salazar did not take advantage of it and recklessly shot her. Five minutes later, a ball came between the crossbars. understandable on the other hand. Donyell Malen turned freely and found Farman on his way. The same Farmann had to give up in the 38th minute. Leaving his central position behind, Niko Schloterbeck moved well and hit 0-1 to Dortmund against the ropes. At the end of the first half, the double lead was close. Wolfe capitulated just in time with Mallen, who clinched the goal from an acute angle. Farman was right in the middle.

Schalke knew the game was by no means over, and coach Thomas Reis must have impressed his men during the first half. A fast start quickly led to a draw. Marius Polter pushed into the far post with a pass from Michael Frey (ex-Antwerp), however, the home team could not enjoy such an equal score for long. He could see Guerreiro running perfectly into space and kicking the Portuguese deftly through the corner: 1-2. When Bynoe-Gittens fell short to make it 3-1 in Dortmund’s favour, in almost identical fashion, things got heated on the other side. Substitute Kenan Karaman snuck hard past Ryerson and Beltre nodded a cross against the ropes in the 79th minute. Goalkeeper Meyer was spotted against his foot. Schalke were level again. In the end he also stayed with 2-2. Eder Balanta (former club Bruges) still had a 3-2 lead at the end, but Meyer made a save.

Dortmund is not satisfied with this draw, especially since Bayern Munich won on Saturday afternoon. Rekordmeister is now clear with two points. Schalke continue their unbeaten run and are (for now) also getting rid of the Red Lanterns.
