Schalke 04 ended up as the loser, since they on Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt.
But hold on now celebration and trouble for an end, where the long-suffering audience in Gelsenkirchen eventually left the stadium just as frustrated as they were furious.
For they felt cheated.
the Reason it was a penalty, as your top scorer, Luka Jovic, hammered in the box. Referee Sascha Stegemann had pointed to the spot after he had taken WERE in use. The images showed that Schalkes Daniel Caligiuri blocked a clearance from Filip Kostic with the hand. It went fast, but it was good enough.
It sparked violently strong reactions from the Schalke camp, as Stegemann after a looong time had seen and assessed and finally pointed to the penalty spot.
the Temporary staff Huub Stevens complaining. It did as well as all the players in the blue jerseys. But the Stegemanns decision was, as it often is in football, not to change.
And then scored Jovic, while the clock gradually it had crept up on the 99 minutes.
Shortly after it was over. And so continued the ballad. Stegemann had to answer for himself to the right and the left.
It helped also not to Suat Serdar, who had equalized to 1-1 for Schalke earlier in the fight, had been thrown out shortly before the penalty. Here also there was much to come after. The 21-year-old German was, quite simply, come too late in a tackle by Kostic, and then he got his second yellow card.

During the battle, the fans protested. Loudly.
the Reason was Christoph Metzelder, who is in the game for the post of sports director of Schalke 04.
And of course it dropped the fans for the chest. For Metzelder is the Dortmund-man. He played well over 100 matches for portugal, before he switched to Real Madrid in 2007. So therefore he must not be the boss of Schalke.
This corresponds to the fact that Per Nielsen will be manager of FC Copenhagen. It's never going to happen.
- Board of directors: the Identity of the count in our club. Metze is a pig, there stood on a large banner, which was rolled down over the stage in the course of the fight.
And it is the seriousness of Schalke these days. The results are terrible. You sacked head coach Domenico Tedesco in march and the inserted holder Huub Stevens, but it is not working. Not yet.
Stevens has Schalke lost two and won single match. With eight games again of the season, the former Champions League-semifinalister measly five points above the relegation zone.
