Stuttgart began the defence of their Bundesliga title with a 2-2 draw at home to Schalke.
Schalke, who finished second to Stuttgart last season, started strongly and were rewarded when Levan Kobiashvili broke the deadlock after 25 minutes.
The home side responded magnificently after half-time and scored two goals in the space of five minutes to turn the game on its head.
First Sami Khedira equalised in the 63rd minute, and then Pavel Pardo gave Stuttgart the lead from the penalty spot after 67 minutes.
However, Schalke battled back to claim a point as Ivan Rakitic levelled the score at 2-2 14 minutes from time.
