Due to a very much disputed penalty Werder Bremen secures a 1:1 draw in the last seconds of the match, when it should have been over since long as it were for Schalke 04.
Simon Terodde who had a first good chance to score in the first half finally marked the 0:1 lead for Schalke late in the game (82th min.) and all seemed to be set for an important away win of the old Bundesliga giant.But then a high ball to the far post reached substitute player Assalé who went down after fighting for the ball with Henning Matriciani. After having checked the scene with the VAR the referee finally decided for the penalty that Niclas Füllkrug confidently converts in the last seconds of overtime (90+9 min.).
After 14 matches both teams remain in the midfield of the standings table, SV Werder Bremen ranked 8th with 20 points and FC Schalke 04 with 23 points.
