It was a lackluster affair in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday. Though there were two red cards on the day, including one straight send-off, there were few opportunities in front of goal on either side, leading to a goalless affair.
Mark Uth gave Schalke an excellent opportunity, taking a decent crack from distance barely one minute in, but Freiburg keeper Alexander Schwolow handled it after a hasty save. Both sides thought they had a case for a penalty, when they were on the right side of the pitch, but were denied by VAR. Suat Serdar was forced to hit the showers early after a harsh challenge on Mike Frantz drew a straight red card just before halftime. Christian Günter also had to leave early due to rough play, but that came late in the second half. Both sides missed key passes and what other chances they had hit a brick wall or harmlessly flew away.
