The game started off with both teams neutralizating each other in the midfield area. Schalke had a little edge but could no create any chances for themselves. A few quick passes from the frontline of Schalke confused the defense from Duisburg after 18 minutes and Julian Draxler broke through between two defenders and made the opening goal from 20 metres. Schalke had then control over the game and as Jefferson Farfán made a run on the right side Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was ready for the cross to score the 2–0 just four minutes later. Schalke had a few other chances to raise the lead but after 30 minutes Duisburg got better into the game, and had some chances. The biggest one had Sefa Yılmaz after he had an open lane to the goal but somehow waited too long and the defense recovered and his shot went wide right. Later, Manuel Schäffler had a chance when he had his back to the goal with Christoph Metzelder on his back but his shot had not enough power to go past Manuel Neuer's goal. Schalke was struggling but Benedikt Höwedes scored the third goal two minutes before halftime after a corner kick where David Yelldell misread the ball and was too late. After the halftime the game was decided after Jurado scored the 4–0 after a nice pass from Huntelaar with more than 30 minutes to go. After that goal Schalke 04 controlled the pace of the game and Huntelaar scored his second goal after Ivica Banović from Duisburg passes to Goran Šukalo who lost the ball and Huntelaar scored from 10 metres after 70 minutes. Not much chances afterwards and the game ended in a comfortable 5–0 for FC Schalke 04 for their fifth title.[3]
