Schalke celebrate

That's it ! Simon Terodde's double has taken Schalke up to provisional third in the standings. The visitors weren't at their best while Dynamo will feel they deserved a point but Die Knappen can head back to Gelsenkirchen happy in the knowledge they are well in the fight for automatic promotion.

Some handbags on the touchline as Lode takes his time while assessing himself for an injury. Dynamo's subs lose their patience with the Schalke man, who is subsequently subbed off.

Terodde the man

He now leads the way on top of the 2. Bundesliga scoring charts with 21 goals but will Simon Terodde's double be enough to see Schalke home here?

Büskens watching closely

Schalke coach Mike Büskens is prowling his touchline and looking slightly worried as he studies his team. The visitors seemed set fair for three points not so long ago. Will's goal has raised the prospects of a Dynamo comeback, however.

Home fans go quiet

It's been tough on the Dynamo fans who were bouncing during a highly promising first half for their team. Those Schalke goals either side of the break have left the Black-and-Yellow supporters in stunned silence, however.

Schalke menacing

Schalke look like they're in with Bülter getting to the endline and cutting back for Terodde. Looks like Bülter may have just taken that one out of play before passing, though, so play would have been brought back had Terodde made anything of the chance.

Away we go

Dynamo get us back underway. How will the hosts respond to going behind late in that first half and can Schalke build on their lead? We're all set to find out.

Plenty to ponder

Die Schwarzgelben go in at the break a goal behind. Plenty of positives for Guerino Capretti to use in his half-time team talk but that late goal will have served to give Schalke a lift. A fascinating second half awaits.

Dynamo anger

Dynamo will be furious. They have dominated this first half but after trying to play out from the back, gave up possession cheaply and that led to Terodde being downed inside the box.

No mistake from Terodde

Terodde strolls up and rolls his penalty to the right, sending Broll the wrong way. The visitors lead.

Intense encounter

Dynamo have definitely edged this one and had the better of the chances thus far, but with Schalke looking menacing on the break, it's impossible to predict how this game might go.

Dynamo hit the woodwork

Will let's fly from outside the box and after his effort takes a slight deflection, it looks in as soon as it passes the outstretched hand of Fraisl. The post comes to Schalke's rescue.

Onus on Drchal

A big night for Czech striker, Vaclav Drchal, who is making just his ninth appearance for Dynamo this evening. The 22-year-old has yet to find the net for the Saxony-based side.

Schalke team news

Schalke make three changes to the side that downed Hannover last time out. The visitors' No. 10, Rodrigo Zalazar, misses out with a foot injury while Victor Palsson and Kerim Calhanoglu are also out of contention. Thomas Ouwejan, Danny Latza and Marcin Kaminski come in.

Dynamo team news

Dresden must do without forward Christoph Daferner for this one, with Vaclav Drchal coming in in the forward's stead. Brandon Borello and Patrick Weihrauch also miss out for the hosts.

All to play for

A win for Dynamo tonight would see last season's third-tier champions leapfrog Sandhausen in 15th and join Hannover on 31 points. Should the Royal Blues prevail, however, then they would go above Darmstadt and into third with 50 points on the board.

Büskens calls for cool heads

Schalke interim coach, Mike Büskens, has also been having his say on what his players can expect at the home of Dynamo. “Any footballer that has already played there knows about the atmosphere," he said. "The fans will cheer on their team for the whole 90 minutes [so] we have to be calm on the ball and not allow ourselves to be influenced by the atmosphere.”

Big atmosphere expected

An expected full house at the Rudolf-Harbig-Stadion tonight is creating plenty of buzz among fans, players and coaches alike. "I'm really excited and can't wait to see the spirit and support from the fans," said Dynamo coach Guerino Capretti. "It's the perfect setting and I couldn't imagine anything better for the game on Friday," the tactician added.

Excitement in store

Welcome to this evening's mouthwatering second-tier game that holds plenty of interest at both ends of the table. Dynamo Dresden - third from bottom in the standings - are seeking what would be a first win in eleven games while fourth-placed Schalke have automatic promotion on their minds.
