Schalke 04 has won again after three winless Bundesliga games. At the end of the tenth game day Schalke won at FC Augsburg 3: 2 (1: 1) - while the Schalke seemed close to a defeat.
Daniel Baier (38th minute) and Alfred Finnbogason on hand penalty (60th) brought the hosts twice in the lead. Augsburg's Stephan Lichtsteiner on own goals (45. + 1) and Ozan Kabak (71.) equalized twice, then secured Amine Harit the Schalke victory with a remarkable goal: he benefited from a missed pass Reece Oxford in the Augsburg half, dribbled at high speed forward, Tin Jedvaj stopped and chipped the ball past FCA keeper Tomas Koubek (82).
The injury of Salif Sané would spoil Schalkes joy. The defender had to be replaced in the ninth minute because of a knee injury, he was still driven during the game to the hospital, a diagnosis was initially out.

Augsburg is thus waiting for a victory in the sixth Bundesliga game in a row. The team convinced over long distances. Augsburg's Marco Richter came twice in the early stages (3, 5), later he narrowly failed S04 keeper Alexander Nübel (29). Florian Niederlechner missed Schalke goal in the 37th minute. Then Baier met with a deflected shot from the edge of the box, it was his first goal since October 2016, opponents at that time: Schalke 04.
Schalke, however, was hardly dangerous from the game. But there were still the standards. A free-kick cross for Sané substitute Daniel Caligiuri, who directed Lichtsteiner into the goal, was followed by a 1: 1 free-kick. Caligiuri gave the ball a free-kick again in the 2-2 draw, this time from the right, and this time with Kabak as the target, extending the ball into the far corner.
When Schalke's Bastian Oczipka got the ball from Finnbogason at close range to the unarmed arm, referee Patrick Ittrich decided after handing in the video referee on hand penalty. Finnbogason transformed sovereign, and given the Schalke harmlessness, the FCA seemed close to victory. Then came Kabak and Harit.
