Another corner and Schwolow again makes himself a nuisance. He misses it this time but the ball lands at Greiml, who has no idea about it as the ball pops up for Gikiewicz.
The free-kick is cleared for a corner. Up comes goalkeeper Schwolow. It's almost a repeat of Neuer against Augsburg last matchday but he can't quite connect with the second delivery and Gikiewicz can gather the loose ball.
Augsburg are keeping Schalke away from their own box for now. But as we say that, the hosts win a free-kick wide on the left about 25 yards out.
We'll have SEVEN extra minutes in Gelsenkirchen.
The Schalke No.6 trips himself as he looks to cross and stays down holding his ankle. Perhaps the embarrassment is more painful. He's eventually back to his feet.
TIME FOR ONE MORE?
Augsburg are trying to keep the ball in the corner and run down the clock. A mix-up between Yoshida and Schwolow almost presents them a chance to wrap things up, but there'll be around another five minutes to play still.
ALL GOOD THINGS COME IN THREE
This is the first time this season Augsburg have scored more than twice in a league game.
A GOOD MILESTONE PERFORMANCE

Three goals and a red card since going 2-0 up has seen Augsburg's Win Probability fall.
THE 10 MEN LEAD!
Schalke fail to get the ball clear and Gruezo recycles it out right to Gumny, who crosses into the path of Hahn darting into the middle and he nods past Schwolow to restore Augsburg's lead.
RARE DISCIPLINARY SLIP
Berisha is the first Augsburg player to be sent off since Ruben Vargas in May 2021, ending a run of 42 Bundesliga games without a red card for the club.
From 2-0 up to 2-2 and now a man down. This has not gone to plan for Augsburg as Berisha is shown a second yellow for leading with his elbow going up for a header. He for the first for the needless melee in the first half.
ALMOST THE LEAD!
Terodde is in behind, knocks the ball past Gikiewicz. It may have just crossed the line before it's hooked clear, but the flag is raised in any case for offside against the striker, who caught the Augsburg goalkeeper in the process.
Tom Krauß Mërgim Berisha
It had been all Augsburg for the last few minutes but it's Schalke who get the next goal. A clinical counter-attack as they go from clearing a cross to Drexler slipping in Krauß up the left. It takes a deflection off Bauer and over Gikiewicz, but the hosts won't care how it's gone in.
DEMIROVIC TO BERISHA
The goalscorer skips past three-four challenges as he races through the middle before laying it off to Berisha to the right of the D. He goes for the left-footed curler that Schwolow can only parry away.
AUGSBOOM OR BUST
As it stands, the visitors are on for their fourth win of the season - to go with four defeats in their eight games. It will move them up to 10th, but to give you an idea of how tight things are, they'll only be three points off Bayern and Dortmund.
Throw from the left, Demirovic spins his man and fizzes the ball across goal. Berisha is on the stretch at the far post and can't quite turn it on target.
NIEDERLECHNER HAS A GO
Augsburg come forward down the left before coming inside. Niederlechner is the man picked out about 20 yards out. He tries to go for a curler to the far corner from left of centre, but Schwolow holds diving to his left.
VAN DEN BERG DONE
The stretcher is out and the centre-back can't continue. Leo Greiml is on in his place. The Austrian defender has only played three minutes in the Bundesliga till now.

BACK UNDER WAY
The play resumes at the Veltins Arena, with Schalke making a switch at the break as Zalazar replaces Bülter.
The visitors are ahead at the break in Gelsenkirchen - the first time this season they've led a game at the halfway mark. Two goals from two shots on target shows how clinical they've been. Schalke are more or less on the money with their one goal based on xG. But we've got another 45 minutes to go...
AUGSBURG HALFWAY THERE
Schalke try another high ball into the box - perhaps trying to emulate Augsburg at the start of the half - but this one is claimed by Gikiewicz as we go into two additional minutes.
COUPLE OF CORNERS
Schalke always pose a threat from set pieces with Ouwejan in the side. He has a couple of chances to deliver from corners, but both are cleared by the organised Augsburg defence.
The game barely restarts and referee Schlager has to dish out three yellows as a melee takes hold in the centre circle after Terodde pulled back Rexhbecaj trying to chase down the restart.
TERODDE GETS ONE BACK!
Schalke are suddenly right back in this. Drexler down the left this time with the low cutback and Terodde turns it into the top corner for his second Bundesliga goal of the campaign and just 12th of his career.
The visitors have scored twice but the stats suggest they should in fact be behind. Football, eh...
BERISHA THE DIFFERENCE FOR AUGSBURG?
A late summer signing, Mergim Berisha has a goal and two assists in his last three games. Could he be Augsburg's saviour this season?
Augsburg kicked off today with only a 24% chance of winning, but the new Bundesliga Match Fact shows that those two goals have boosted their probability of victory to 74%.
Drexler heads down the right and delivers a fizzing cross to the far post, but it's over Terodde coming in.
KRAUSS HAS A GO
First attack of note from the hosts as Tom Krauß has a crack from 20 yards. It's straight at Gikiewicz but the midfielder signals for his teammates to step things up.
A MOVE THAT'S PAID OFF
Summer signing Demirovic already has three goals to his name for Augsburg in the Bundesliga. It's more than he got in 31 games for Freiburg last season (two).
And it's one of those crosses that's just done for Schalke inside 10 minutes. Hahn with the delivery this time. It's flicked on in the middle and lands at Demirovic left of goal. He takes a touch to shift it onto his right and nonchalantly bends it inside the far post.
PROMISING FROM AUGSBURG
The home crowd are making the noise but that's mostly in response to a decent start by the visitors. They're getting forward frequently and putting balls into the box. The latest picks out Hahn at the far post - making his 250th Bundesliga appearance - but he only knocks it back into the hands of Schwolow.
YOSHIDA ON THE SPOT
Alert as ever from the experienced Japanese defender as he cuts out a Demirovic cross with Niederlechner lurking.
KICK-OFF MOMENTS AWAY...

"GREEDY FOR MORE"
HOME FANS BELIEVE
With Augsburg on a high following two hugely impressive wins, today's hosts will likely have their work cut out for them. Enrico Maaßen's men picked up a notable win at Werder Bremen - who, lest we forget, hit five past Gladbach yesterday - and then only went on to beat defending champions Bayern Munich on Matchday 7.
Schalke will look to put their Revierderby defeat to Borussia Dortmund behind them at home to Augsburg in Bundesliga Matchday 8's final fixture. Can the promoted Royal Blues pick up a second home win of the season?
