With the much-celebrated 3-1 home win against VfL Bochum, Schalke were able to score their first three of the current season. A very important game, because of the supposedly "small derby" and the table situation, which became a significant sense of achievement for the royal blue hosts.
This puts Schalke in twelfth place in the table with six points. After six defeats, VfL is still the pointless and meanwhile slightly defeated bottom.
