Berlin, Aug 20: Goals from bil Bentaleb and Yevhen Konoplyanka provided newly appointed Schalke head coach Domenico Tedesco a faultless start into the Bundesliga football campaign by beating Leipzig 2-0.

Both sides on Saturday staged an evenly balanced encounter as Schalke’s well positioned defence gave the visitors from Leipzig a hard time. However, Schalke were also able to work out goal scoring opportunities.

Elsewhere, Hoffenheim edged Werder Bremen 1-0 owing to Andrej Kramaric’s late goal.

Mathew Leckie ended his goal drought with a brace and ensured Hertha Berlin’s 2-0 victory over newly promoted Stuttgart.

Hamburg downed Augsburg 1-0 thanks to the early goal from Nicolai Mueller and newly promoted Hannover upset Mainz 1-0. IANS
