HUGE CHANCE FOR THREE

Skrzybski breaks away after a huge kick from Kastenmeier with Schubert racing back having come up for a free-kick. The Schalke loanee races past him, but Jonjoe Kenny makes an incredible last-ditch block.

NOT EASY TO BREAK DOWN

The home side are defending resolutely here, not making it easy at all for Schalke to get chances on goal. Set pieces may be the order of the day for them.

FRESH LEGS FOR THE FINAL STRETCH

There's 15 minutes to play for Schalke to get back into this game after going back with two goals in the space of five minutes. Kutucu and Gregoritsch are on to add to fresh legs in the Royal Blue attack.

KARAMAN PUTS FORTUNA HEAD!

A short corner is swung into the box from Thommy and it causes problems in the box. Kabak beats Ayhan to the ball, but his header goes towards his own goal and Karaman is perfectly placed to poke the ball over the line ahead of Schubert.

HENNINGS HEADS FORTUNA LEVEL

It's Hennings again who scores against Schalke and it's his first goal in 2020. A fantastic free-kick is pile-drived towards goal from Stöger and Schubert can only parry the ball into the air. It's Nastasic vs. Hennings as to who wins the header, and Hennings does the job to put the ball over the line and bring the game level. It's his fourth goal against Schalke this season.

FORTUNA PUSHING ON

The home side remain on top in terms of possession in this second half. Chances have been few and far between, but the pressure is building.

PASSION FROM MCKENNIE

His celebration says it all. The USMNT star lets out a lot of frustration with his roar having put Schalke ahead. As things stand, Schalke sit just two points behind Wolfsburg in sixth place.
53'

MCKENNIE HEADS SCHALKE AHEAD!

Sometimes it can be that simple. A free-kick swings in from Oczipka's left foot and McKennie is unmarked and produces a deadly diving header, powering the ball past Kastenemeier to put Schalke into the lead.

APPROACHING THE BREAK

No chances on goal in the last 10 minutes or so, with Fortuna holding onto the majority of the ball. The home side are working hard as well, almost two kilometres more covered than their visitors.

THOMMY FORCES A SAVE

The right-footed winger cuts in from the left flank and curls a powerful shot at goal, but Schubert does well to push it away from goal.

MATONDO HAS WHEELS

The Welsh winger has been clocked at 36km/h already in this game. Only Borussia Dortmund's Achraf Hakimi has ever gone faster than 36km/h before since Bundesliga records began.

BOTH SIDES DEFENDING WELL

It's been a difficult start for the attacking players on either side. Caligiuri's chance the only clear-cut one so far, with the likes of Ozan Kabak and Kaan Ayhan dominating the game so far.
21'

CHANCE FOR CALIGIURI

The first big chance of the day goes the way of Schalke. A long ball is controlled by Caligiuri firstly with his head without knowing where the ball was, before he took the ball through Hofmann with a cheeky touch to send him in on goal. He got shot away under pressure, but Kastenmeier stood tall in the Fortuna goal to parry.

JUST 19 PASSES SO FAR

Schalke have struggled to get on the ball here in the early stages and keep the ball for any length of time. Just 57 per cent of their passes completed, 19 in total.

KARAMAN HAS A GO

First shot of the evening comes from the home side. Ayhan superbly intercepts the ball as Schalke look to counter and he flicks inside for Karaman to run onto the ball on the edge of the box. He strikes the ball first-time on his left, but Schubert makes a comfortable save.

HOME SIDE ON TOP

Fortuna have enjoyed the majority of the ball here in the opening minutes. No chances to speak of so far, but Fortuna looking confident at the very least.

SCHALKE HAPPY IN DÜSSELDORF

Schalke are three games unbeaten in Düsseldorf (W2, D1), and have failed to score on a trip to the Merkur Spiel-Arena only once in 20 meetings. But the Royal Blues have sour memories of the reverse fixture where Rouwen Hennings scored a hat-trick for Fortuna in a 3-3 draw.
