(CNN) -- Schalke wasted a glorious opportunity to close the gap at the top of the Bundesliga after frittering away a two-goal lead at Fortuna Dusseldorf.
The visitors, who led 2-0 at the break, were pegged back by Dani Schahin's double as Dusseldorf fought back to take a point.
Schalke had hoped to move to within two points of league leaders Bayern Munich and made the perfect start when Klaas-Jan Huntelaar fired them ahead after 13 minutes.
Joel Matip doubled Schalke's lead soon after to leave Dusseldorf's unbeaten start to the season in peril.
But the home side roared back after the interval with Dani Schahin's brace enough to maintain its impressive start to the campaign.
Schalke now sit third in the table, three points off the top having played a game more.
