With this third victory in a row, they overtook the area rivals Borussia Dortmund, who will compete at Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.
Ex-Mainzer Suat Serdar met in front of 58.687 spectators in the 36th minute for Schalke, substitute Mainz Karim Onisiwo (75) succeeded in the meantime equalizer. Amine Harit (89.) scored the winning goal shortly before the end. For Mainz it was the fourth defeat in this young Bundesliga season.
Schalke coach David Wagner reminded of the match in the DAZN interview. Every exuberance should be avoided after the 5: 1 in Paderborn.
