MBOM SUPERB ON DEBUT

The 20-year-old gets a round of applause from the Bremen bench as he comes off after his full Bundesliga debut. He covered the most distance, won the most duels and had the fastest speed of any player today.

The midfielder has some space ahead of him in midfield and fires a shot at goal from 25 yards. An awkward one for Pavlenka, he tips it behind for a corner.

STAYING COMPOSED

Bremen are looking to let the clock tick down without allowing pressure to come from the home side as it does. Staying composed in possession, rushing nothing and cutting down the risks. Sensible play from Bremen.
78'

CHANCE FOR SARGENT!

The USMNT forward almost gets his goal to go with an assist as he forces a fantastic save from Fährmann at his near post, rising to meet Veljkovic's volley into the box with his head. Didn't look confident with that chance, though, did Sargent.

STORY OF THE DAY FOR SCHALKE

The home side have had almost 70 per cent of possession and have made over 200 more passes than their visitors, but haven't done enough with that time on the ball going forward. Two chances fell Boujellab and Ibisevic's way, and little more.

HAT-TRICK FOR FÜLLKRUG!

Bremen's star of the day completes his hat-trick from the spot after winning the penalty himself. He got himself on the wrong side of Kabak to earn the spot-kick, with a trip from the Schalke defender sending him to the floor. He then steps up and sends Fährmann the wrong way to make it a three-goal lead for the visitors.

BOUJELLAB NEXT!

This is an even better chance for the Schalke youngster - who scored twice in midweek for the Schalke U23s. He collects possession in the Bremen box and has only Pavlenka to beat, firing a shot across him aimed for the bottom corner. But he drags his effort wide from 10 yards out.

HUGE CHANCE FOR IBISEVIC

Paciencia floats a cross into the centre from the left side of Bremen's box. It's perfectly weighted to find Ibisevic in front of goal and he heads the ball goalward, but misses the target. He drops to his knees in disbelief as he knows that should have been one goal back for Schalke.

BETTER SO FAR FROM SCHALKE

The home side are staying more patient in possession to start the second half, with Bremen only pressing when the Royal Blues try to push forward with the ball. Still, there's a lack of movement and creativeness in attack for the home side, with Bremen's defence standing firm so far.
46'

SECOND HALF UNDERWAY!

Two changes at the break for Schalke with Ibisevic and Sane on, the former making his Bundesliga debut for the club. Raman and Stambouli the two players replaced.

FÜLLKRUG DOUBLES THE LEAD!

A second for Bremen and second for Füllkrug as a set-piece does the trick again. Augustinsson's free-kick is a lovely one, curling into the Schalke box and Füllkrug rises high above Stambouli to meet it and head the ball past Fährmann with ease. Superb start to the season in his first start of the season, for the Bremen striker.

WINNING THE BATTLE

Bremen aren't giving Schalke any space to work with on the ball. High pressing has been forcing mistakes from the home side, while the visitors have been winning challenges all over the pitch. Making life difficult for their hosts.

CHANCE FOR FÜLLKRUG AGAIN

The Bremen goalscorer breaks away from Stambouli and into the Schalke box down the right flank. He goes for goal at the near post but just misses the target, hitting the side-netting.

BREMEN TAKING CONTROL

The away side have the lead and have now had four attempts on goal already in this first half. Schalke's defence is struggling to deal with the combination of Sargent and Füllkrug in attack, while their four-man midfield is on top as well.

FÜLLRKUG PUTS BREMEN AHEAD

Augustinsson swings in a corner having won it himself with a shot moments before. Sargent rises highest to head it down in front of goal and Füllkrug is perfectly-placed to turn and bury the loose ball.

HUGE CHANCE FOR SARGENT!

A great opportunity for the American to put Bremen in front as Stambouli's loose pass is latched onto by Bittencourt just outside the Schalke box on the right. He plays the ball into the middle where Sargent is waiting but he misses the ball with his attempt, with Kabak making a late attempt to put him off.

MBOM STUCK IN

The 20-year-old debutant is showing no nerves on debut so far, getting stuck into challenges and pushing high up the pitch in support of Sargent and Füllkrug. He's also covered the most distance of any player on the pitch so far.

SCHALKE LATE TO THE PARTY

A slight delay to kick-off as the Schalke team comes out onto the pitch a few minutes later than scheduled.

READY TO GO!

Five minutes until kick-off in Gelsenkirchen where Schalke will host Bremen this evening. Both sides are desperate to get their first points of the season after difficult first outings last weekend. Can either team pick up all three, or will there be a share of the spoils? Let's find out...

BOOST FOR SCHALKE

There are injuries to both Suat Serdar and Amine Harit rubbing some salt in the wounds after the Royal Blues' heaving opening night defeat, but there is some positive news for Schalke fans. Captain Oscar Mascarell is back to start for the first time in seven months after a lengthy injury spell for the Spanish midfielder.

DEBUT FOR MBOM

The 20-year-old defensive midfielder is another gem out of the Bremen academy who will make his full Bundesliga debut today. Jean-Manuel Mbom signed for Bremen in 2013 and has progressed through the club's youth ranks in the seven years since, representing German at youth level from U15 to U20 along the way.

WARM-UP TIME!

Both sides are going through their warm-ups in Gelsenkirchen with less than half an hour to go till kick-off.

SCHALKE TEAM NEWS

Changes, too, for Schalke and David Wagner after their 8-0 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich on the opening night. Benito Raman, Nassim Boujellab and Oscar Mascarell all come in to start - with the Royal Blues' defence staying as they were.

BREMEN TEAM NEWS

Four changes for Bremen from their 1-4 opening weekend defeat to Hertha Berlin. Niclas Füllkrug, Leonardo Bittencourt, Jean-Manuel Mbom and Milos Veljkovic all come in for Florian Kohfeldt's side.
