The Royal Blues made full use of the quota for the 0: 4 derby defeat at Borussia Dortmund, which was increased by the rules of the International Football Association Board (IFAB) on Saturday. In the 87th minute, Timo Becker came in as fifth substitute for Jonjoe Kenny.

Poor news for Schalke 04: already struggling in the league, the Ruhr club will have to do without until the end of the season their top scorer, Suat Serdar, victim of an external ligament tear in the head of the fibula, said coach David Wagner on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old German international midfielder, who has scored seven Bundesliga goals this season, was injured in the second period Saturday after a 3-0 loss at home to Augsburg and will be out for three to four months.

Serdar will have to pass tests to decide "if it is necessary to operate this weekend," said David Wagner.

The loss of this key player is a blow to Schalke, 8th in the Bundesliga but who has not won a single of his last nine games (twenty-two goals conceded, two goals scored).

"We are no longer the team we were in the first half of the season. We cannot compare the football we were playing then," conceded Wagner.

Schalke 04 will face Fortuna Düsseldorf, 16th and therefore barrage specialist, on Wednesday.
