At the end of the fourth day of the Bundesliga, FC Schalke scored the first point of the new season thanks to a 1-1 draw with Union Berlin.

After a balanced first half, in which both teams rarely found gaps in their defenses, the goals only wanted to fall in the second half. First it was Marvin Friedrich who headed the Union leadership after an inadequately cleared corner (55th), only fourteen minutes later the new Schalke Gonçalo Paciência scored his debut goal for the "Knappen" (69th).

Inspired by the equalization, the home side played more dominant from now on, but the goal for the urgently needed first win of the season did not want to fall. Schalke moved past Mainz in 17th place, Union occupied tenth place.
