Schalke 04 lose opening match in Second Bundesliga

Schalke 04 has not yet fully processed the relegation. The famous German club lost 1-3 against Hamburger SV in the opening game of the Second Bundesliga on Friday evening, still in front of its own audience in Gelsenkirchen.

The ‘Königsblauen’ quickly took the lead through Simon Terodde. After the break, Robert Glatzel, who had already missed a penalty, equalized. Moritz Heyer and Bakery Jatta helped HSV, tipped as a title candidate, to the win in the final phase.

At Schalke, where Klaas-Jan Huntelaar ended his professional career, Thomas Ouwejan (ex-AZ) had a basic place. He played the whole game. Ludovit Reis, who exchanged FC Groningen for FC Barcelona at the time, started as a debutant at HSV.
