Schalke’s Karaman with early bad luck

Schalke got off to a furious start and almost took the lead early on: After a combination down the right side, Yusuf Kabadayı passed it back to Kenan Karaman, who was however denied by the crossbar (7′). On the other side, Martinovic appeared dangerously in front of the Schalke goal for the first time in the twelfth minute.

Le Joncour scores for Elversberg

Elversberg’s desire to score increased and culminated in the opening goal: Le Joncour headed in a free-kick cross from Jannik Rochelt from the right half of the field.

The deficit had an impact on Schalke, who only came back dangerously in front of the opponent’s goal shortly before the break. Again it was Karaman who failed with a header past SVE goalkeeper Nicolas Kristof. Simon Terodde put the rebound next to the post.

Geraerts with top(p) substitution for S04

Almost a quarter of an hour after the restart, Schalke’s coach Karel Geraerts made a substitution during the break. Karaman appeared on the right side of the hosts’ penalty area and fed Topp, who had run in centrally, and he hit the goal from close range with his left foot.

But the game was not yet decided – Elversberg also scored his hit on the crossbar. Following a pass from Rochelt, youngster Paul Wanner slammed the ball onto the crossbar from almost 20 meters. And after two nice passes, Rochelt had the chance to score Elversberg’s second goal, but S04 keeper Marius Müller was in the right place (83′).

Elversbergs Steffen: Staying in the league is a priority

Horst Steffen, the coach of SV Elversberg, was not dissatisfied with the draw in the end: “We still have a chance of the lucky punch with two big things in the end. But in the end we can be very happy with a 1-1 and 40 points.” With their season management, the Saarlanders should be able to stay in the league with some ease.
