And the favorite would have had to lead clearly early, but Robert Lewandowski (7th minute), Philippe Coutinho (8) and Kingsley Coman (13) awarded in promising positions. Serge Gnabry did better - the international scored in the 15th minute. Paderborn remained in the offensive direction, but came only by an accidental return of Thiago to score a chance (24).

Bayern coach Niko Kovac had already changed twice during the break, with Tottenham sparing Thiago and Lucas Hernández, and Javi Martínez and Alphonso Davies. After a 2-0 by Coutinho, who met after a worthwhile chip pass from Joshua Kimmich and a cross pass from Gnabry into the empty net (55.), the game seemed decided.

First, the Royal Blues were lucky, as Marcel Sabitzer for Leipzig hit only the crossbar (15) and a few seconds later on strongly reacts Alexander Nübel failed.

But otherwise Schalke was defensively secure and took the few chances to score effectively. Salif Sané first hit a header (29 '), shortly before the break Amine Harit converted a penalty. The strong Moroccan had been fouled by Amadou Haidara. Referee Manuel Gräfe had watched the scene in the Review Area for a long time and decided on a penalty after more than two minutes.
