CHANCE GOING AMISS?

Victory would send Schalke third, but as it stands they're going to fail to take advantage of draws this weekend for the previous top three of Pauli, Darmstadt and Hamburg. Heidenheim are up into the play-off spot as it stands.

FAMILIAR FOE

Terodde now has six goals in six Bundesliga 2 meetings with Kiel, including three in two this season.

KORB!

A chance for Kiel to snatch the lead back as a cross from the left goes all the way through to Korb, but the substitute is denied by Fraisl at his near post.

HE'S BACK!

Immediate response from Schalke as Terodde brings up his 13th goal of the season. Palsson with the flick up to the striker, who spins in behind and finishes with aplomb from right of centre.

BANG FROM MÜHLING!

Kiel lead from nothing! Bartels is forced wide as he tries to run in behind, so he turns around to the left and plays a pass back to Mühling coming from deep. He goes with the outside of his right boot and curls it into the top corner past a helpless Fraisl.

KIEL GROWING

The away side look to be growing into the game now and are seeing more of the ball, especially in the final third. Next step for them is to create something telling from it. We've still only seen two attempts on target from both sides.
56'

ZALAZAR ON THE BREAK

The hosts counter from a Kiel corner and Zalazar gets a shot away from the right of the box, but drags it wide. He's one of eight Schalke outfield players to have taken a shot so far today. Only wing-backs Ouwejan and Ranftl haven't yet.

SCHALKE STILL IN CONTROL

WAITING...

Schalke have been back out on the pitch for a couple of minutes waiting for the Kiel players to return.
Half-time
45'

ALMOST BRILLIANT FROM KIRKESKOV!

Kiel have a free-kick a good 30+ yards out, left of centre. They look to be lining up for the cross, so Fraisl is some way off his line in expectation, but Kirkeskov on his left foot bends the ball around the small wall and almost catches the Schalke keeper out at his right-hand post. He just manages to scramble across and get there in time.
41'

CHURLINOV!

Churlinov spins his man in the box as he receives a ball from the right, but can't quite wrap his foot around it and bends his effort a couple of yards wide.
35'

SANE!

There is the first save and it had to be a good one from Dähne at full stretch high to his right to deny a well hit Sane effort from over 20 yards.
31'

A GLIMPSE

Bartels plays a super through ball to his only option Pichler, who'd run around Thiaw as the pass went inside him, but he sort of gets the ball struck under his feet and allows the Schalke defence to recover and prevent a shot inside the area.

ZALAZAR THE SPARK FOR SCHALKE SO FAR

20'

FOUL THROW

Not one you see every day as the ball slips out of Kirkeskov's hands trying to take a throw.
14'

ALMOST IN AGAIN!

Zalazar the man once again for Schalke in midfield, turning his man and setting off with a through ball up to Terodde. He turns it around the corner for Idrizi, who could probably shoot himself but instead tries to square to Churlinov. Wahl steps back in just in time to cut it out.
5'

CROSSBAR!

What a blistering start in Gelsenkirchen. Free-kick into the box goes to the far post, where Thiaw has Palsson overlapping. The Schalke skipper fizzes the ball across, where Dähne gets a hand to it but only turns it onto the legs of Terodde. He knows nothing about it as the ball pops up onto the crossbar from a couple of yards out. The 11th time this season Schalke have been denied by the frame of the goal/
4'

ALMOST A GIFT!

Perhaps the Royal Blues need to calm down a bit. Kiel get in down the right and cross in behind the Schalke back line. Fraisl calls for it but Sane instead goes for it and almost knocks the ball into his own net before recovering to clear in time.
3'

ZALAZAR BLOCKED

The Uruguayan again drives forward from midfield and pulls the trigger himself. Thesker gets a leg in the way at the expense of a corner.

FRONT FOOT

Schalke are immediately on the front foot as they drive forward through Zalazar. He goes right to Ranftl, who tries to cut inside but it tripped by Kirkeskov. Free-kick comes to nothing, though.
Kick-off!

The teams are making their way out at the Veltins Arena, where 750 fans are allowed in once again.

WATCH: KIEL 0-3 SCHALKE

Simon Terodde bagged a brace as the Royal Blues claimed a comfortable victory in the first Bundesliga 2 meeting between these sides. It had been almost 60 years since the teams last faced each other competitively.

KIEL TEAM NEWS

Kiel make four changes from the team that stunned leaders St. Pauli 3-0 in the final game of 2021. Experienced defenders Hauke Wahl and Marco Komenda return, while Philipp Sander and Mikkel Kirkeskov come into the five-man midfield.

SCHALKE TEAM NEWS

The big news for Schalke is that top scorer Simon Terodde is back after missing the final four games of 2021. He’s got 12 goals from 14 appearances, but the Royal Blues actually average more per game without him than with him in the side. The new Norwegian duo of Marius Lode and Andreas Vindheim both start on the bench for Dimitrios Grammozis’s side.
