LAST MEETING


November 13, 2010: Wolfsburg 2-2 Schalke

Not for the first time, Wolfsburg saw a home lead canceled out and had to settle for a draw. Grafite and Edin Dzeko netted a goal apiece within the opening 33 minutes, but Schalke pulled a goal back before half-time thanks to Edu. The visitors were better in the second half, but only managed to equalize under fortuitous circumstances as Klaas-Jan Huntelaar controlled a cross with his hand before netting to make it 2-2. Ashkan Dejagah was sent off shortly thereafter, but the hosts did just enough to hold onto their point until full time.
