HA HO HE !

Hertha have done it! A draw seemed so likely after Florent Mollet rattled in an equaliser with just five minutes to go but up stepped Wilfried Kanga to slide in the winner shortly afterwards and break Schalke hearts. Hertha rise to 13th in the standings while Schalke are bottom of the pile at the end of Matchday 11.

SCHALKE LEVEL UP!

Schalke are on terms ! Hertha fail to clear properly and a looping header lands at the feet of Mollet, who thunders a shot through the legs of Rogel and in at the near post. The roars go up in the away section.

TOUSART OPENER

Hertha make the breakthrough! Tousart's speculative effort from distance is dropping as it flies towards goal. Schwolow doesn't like the looks of this one. The goalkeeper is down, but the ball gets through his attempted grasp and that will go down as a bit of a howler, not that Tousart cares.

HALF TIME

That's the half. Schalke have had the ball in the Hertha net twice but on both occasions, Bülter's efforts - the first a spectacular volley - have been ruled out for infringements. Hertha have probed but lacked that clinical touch in front of goal.

SCHALKE COMPACT

Hertha are finding it difficult to break down a Schalke side that moves from a back three to a back five when not in possession. Kanga tries something from inside the area but he isn't allowed to properly compose himself and can only send a wayward shot flying over.

SCHALKE IMPROVEMENT

Schalke can boast twice as many shots on goal (6) compared to Hertha here. The Royal Blues are adapting well under their interim coach here and have found some spark which was previously missing.

HERTHA FANS BOUNCING

The hosts are not short of noisy support here as they continue to look for openings. The home fans are bouncing away in the background as they roar their team forward.

JOVETIC MISS

Lukebakio's cross for Jovetic is perfct but the striker gets in a muddle and sends the ball against his left foot with his right when trying to shoot. Schalke get away with one there; Jovetic was directly in front of goal.

Schalke are denied the lead and what a goal it would have been. Aydin rescued the ball on the far side before whipping in a cross which Bülter met with a side-footed volley that flew into the top corner. There was an offside in the build-up, however, and Hertha breathe a sigh of relief.

SCHALKE TEAM NEWS

Schalke were knocked out of the cup in a comprehensive 5-1 loss at Hoffenheim on Tuesday that cost coach Frank Kramer his job. Matthias Kreutzer is in temporary charge and makes five changes to the team but sticks with the back three due to a lack of fit centre-backs. Mohr, Flick, Latza, Mollet and Larsson are the ones to drop out. Brunner, Aydin, Krauß, Drexler and Bülter come in.

HERTHA TEAM NEWS

Hertha weren’t in DFB Cup action during the week so make two changes from the team that lost 3-2 at RB Leipzig last week. They see Sunjic and Richter drop to the bench, replaced by Kanga and Ejuke.

RELEGATION SIX-POINTER

Wins do not come easy for Hertha and Schalke, separated by just two points towards the foot of the standings. Hertha haven't won in five, while promoted Schalke are without victory in four league matches - a run that cost Frank Kramer his job as head coach this past week. Make no mistake: this is a HUGE contest in the context of the relegation battle.
