Baba Benched As Aubameyang Draws Blank Against Schalke

Abdul Rahman Baba was left out of the Schalke 04 team that got a precious draw away at Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Perhaps it was a result of conceding an own goal in Wednesday’s DFB Pokal victory against Nuremberg, but coach Markus Weinzierl decided to leave the 22-year-old defender on the bench as he preferred Sead Kolašinac in the wing back role.

Pierre –Emerick Aubameyang failed to find the net for Dortmund as they remain winless in their last three matches.

The Gabon striker, who has scored in the last three matches for Dortmund, was unable to get one against the stout Schalke defence who held on for a valuable point inside the Signal-Iduna Park.

The point moved Dortmund to fifth place while Schalke’s eight points moved them to 12th spot until Sunday’s fixtures.
