BERLIN - Nigerian forward Chinedu Obasi scored one goal and set up the other as Schalke beat Hertha Berlin 2-0 at home to move into provisional second place in the Bundesliga on Friday.

Obasi chested the ball past one defender, prodded it past another and then rounded the keeper before scoring from a tight angle in the 16th minute.

Seconds after the restart, Obasi set up Klaas Jan Huntelaar for the Dutchman's 11th goal from 13 games this season.

Sebastian Langkamp thought he'd pulled one back with a header from a corner in the 81st, but the effort was ruled out for a foul, though TV replays failed to identify any infringement.

Borussia Dortmund can reclaim second place by beating Stuttgart on Saturday.

Bayern Munich clinched the title in record time Tuesday.
