Bundesliga round-up: Daniel Galigiuri haunts old club Wolfsburg and ends unbeaten run
Last Updated: 20/01/19 11:47pm
Daniel Caligiuri scored a brace against his old club as Wolfsburg's unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-1 loss at Schalke.
Caligiuri put the home side 1-0 up with an eighth-minute penalty, awarded after William had fouled Alessandro Schopf.
That effort was cancelled out 12 minutes later when Admir Mehmedi struck a post and Elvis Rexhbecaj slotted in on the follow-up.
Schalke went close just after the break as Sebastian Rudy's header connected with the bar, and Caligiuri then produced a fine winner with 12 minutes of normal time to go, smashing home having received the ball from Weston McKennie and cut inside Jerome Roussillon.
Following a first defeat in seven Bundesliga games, Wolfsburg remain sixth, three points outside the Champions League places.
Meanwhile Schalke, with back-to-back victories under their belt, are up two places to 12th, seven points clear of 16th-placed Stuttgart.
Earlier on Sunday, Ondrej Duda netted twice in Hertha Berlin's 3-1 win at rock-bottom Nurnberg.
Hertha opened the scoring on the quarter-hour mark through Vedad Ibisevic before Hanno Behrens equalised towards the end of the first half - Nurnberg's first goal in five league matches.
Duda then restored the visitors' lead in the 50th minute with a curled effort before firing in his second in the 70th.
The result saw Hertha move up two spots to seventh - they are a point behind Wolfsburg. Nurnberg's fifth successive loss extends their winless streak in the league to 12 games.
