Thomas Müller increased (43.), in direct return Hoffenheim's Andrej Kramaric made it 1: 2 (44.).

After the break, Robert Lewandowski (57th) and Serge Gnabry (63rd) made everything clear.

Berlin's Krzysztof Piatek took the lead (66th), André Silva (67th and 90th + 5 / penalty kick) and Martin Hinteregger (85th) turned the game around.


The Schalke team missed the second win of the season in Bremen despite the late substitution of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Omar Mascarell took the well-deserved lead (38th), Kevin Möhwald scored 1: 1 (77th).

A late goal by Maximilian Eggestein (90 + 4) did not count because of offside.
