80th minute: Now every inch of grass is fought for. You can feel that the pressure on both sides is enormous.
75.Minute: The Schalke smell now that there is more in it than just a point. Union is slowly running out of strength, royal blue is becoming more dominant.
70th minute: There would have been more! After a header extension from Gregoritsch Matondo is in a promising position, but forgives miserably.
66.Minute : The last minutes now belonged more to the guests, who now seem to be more pointed and more willing to win. Is more possible for S04 today?
60.Minute: The Berliners are pushing forward again, but they don't have as many chances as at the beginning of the game, because Schalke holds against it. A racy game develops, because even Schalke sniff that there could be more here and today.
52.Minute: The royal blue now make a better impression - the setting is now correct! But what comes out of it? The Schalke have been without a win for 11 games.
48 minutes: The guests start much better in the second round than in the first. Schalke against it - and can not be caught a second time.

19.Minute: Although the flag is up, Union has a great chance again because the S04 defensive is floating. After a free kick Andersson comes to the ball eight meters in front of the box, can accept it, but then pushes past the housing.

2:50 p.m .: The constellations are known! Get started in half an hour!
Welcome to the live ticker from VIP News. From four games after the Corona break, FC Schalke 04 did not score a single point - and even off the field, the club does not come to rest before the duel in Berlin on Sunday. On Friday Schalke announced the farewell to CFO Peter Peters after a total of 27 years on June 30. "The position of CFO at Schalke is not necessarily subject to amusement tax," said former Schalke manager Christian Heidel. "Maybe at some point the point has come to say that it is enough."
