1. FC Union Berlin


Ralf Fährmann: We’re not playing like a side bottom of the league

Four games, four clean sheets – Ralf Fährmann has been Schalke’s first-choice goalkeeper since matchday 18 and is yet to concede a goal at all this season. After Sunday’s (19/2) goalless draw in Berlin, he has now played 360 minutes without letting a goal in, though Union rarely threatened yesterday. Nevertheless, ‘Ralle’ still had to make a good save from Danilho Doekhi’s effort in the 23rd minute, tipping his left-footed strike over the bar.


Thomas Reis: Another clean sheet and good performance against a strong opponent

Schalke drew 0-0 for the fourth consecutive game this Sunday (19/2). Head coach Thomas Reis and his counterpart from Union Berlin, Urs Fischer, gave their thoughts on the goalless draw at the post-match press conference. Michael Frey and Marius Bülter also spoke to the media.
