Schalke took an early lead but their players were left speechless after a mistake by midfielder Nabil Bentaleb set up Lukas Rupp's 40th-minute winner for Hoffenheim, who themselves had drawn their opening four matches.Schalke, the only Bundesliga team without a point after five games, got the perfect start when Breel Embolo raced past two defenders and crossed for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to head in after four minutes.But Schalke, who have not finished outside the top six since 2010-11, handed the initiative back to the hosts, who leveled with a powerful header by Andrej Kramaric in the 17th minute. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar headed against the post for Schalke but Hoffenheim went ahead five minutes before the break.
