The German Bundesliga is back after its winter break and started its return with a great match between Schalke 04 and Borussia Monchengladbach in Gelsenkirchen. Both teams were on the attack in the first half, but both goalkeepers stepped up to keep the score at nil-nil at halftime.
However, Schalke’s counter-attacking style began to take over early in the second half when Suat Serdar scored in the 48th minute with a curler into the lower right-hand corner of the net. The scoring play was off of an assist off of a counter-attack from the left side.
The second goal came off of a counter-attack after Schalke regained possession on defense. After three quick passes, Michael Gregoritsch was able to score in the 58th minute. Schalke remains in the top five with this win, while this loss puts Monchengladbach in second place for the time being.
