ANNOUNCER: Schalke are on the cusp of a European place. But it's been slow going so far for Wolfsburg. At least John Brooks could finally make his debut after his summer move from here to Berlin. Wolfsburg thought they got in front early when Mario Gomez heading home Maximilian Arnold's free kick. But the flag have rightly gone up for off sides.
Then it was Wolfsburg's turn to get a let off. An excellent driving run from Amine Harit whose shot deflected off Brooks, but somehow [INAUDIBLE] stales at full stretch, managed to turn it on to the post. The replay captures the magnificence of the save. Harit still waiting for his first Bundesliga goal.
The breakthrough came in controversial circumstances just before halftime. Referee Marcus Schmidt didn't see anything wrong when bodies went spooling from the corner. But video assistant Marco Fritz ruled that Josuha Guilavogui had his arms all over Thilo Kehrer. The Wolfsburg man was booked. The penalty given, and converted by Nabil Bentaleb, His third of the season, all at home, and all from the spot.
So 1-0 at the break, thanks to Bentaleb in the side for the injured Leon Goretzka. Wolfsburg were better in the second period, but still might have gone two down when [INAUDIBLE] free kick missed by a whisker.
But back on the hour, Naldo challenge Yannick Gerhardt. And although he won the header, he made plenty of contact with the player too. Another video review, and another penalty. Skipper Mario Gomez stepped up but spooned the spot kick over the top. His standing foot clearly slipped on the turf, the first penalty he's missed for over six years.
Then deep into stoppage time, Martin Schmidt's side got their leveler. Arnold spooled forward, one in the head by Gomez for substitute Divock Origi to pounce from close range. The Belgian's third of the campaign. And it means six straight draws now for Wolfsburg. They finish one apiece at the Veltins-Arena.
