Schalke maintained second spot on the table and a four-point lead over third placed Bayer Leverkusen as they beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at Veltins Arena.

Konoplyanka had the beating of Burki on the stroke of half-time after cutting in from the left, but his strike flew inches past the far post.

Konoplyanka broke the deadlock five minutes after the break after a mistake from Marcel Schmelzer. Marco Pjaca tipped the ball to Caligiuri, who stopped it for Naldo.

RB Leipzig came from a goal behind to earn a share of the spoils after playing to a 1-1 draw against Werder Bremen at the Weserstadion.

Bremen looked the more unsafe side in the first half and they took the lead on 28 minutes.

Schalke cut a better figure in front of the goal as Naldo secured all three points after unleashing 28-meter hammer past Dortmund goalie Roman Buerki in the closing period of the derby. Winding his way through the Bremen back line, the young Englishman whipped a fierce shot past Jiri Pavlenka to level the scores.
