Heiko Herrlich enjoyed a perfect first Bundesliga game on the touchline as Augsburg coach on Sunday when his side cruised to a 3-0 win at Schalke, a week after he missed their loss to Wolfsburg because he broke quarantine rules to buy toothpaste.

The 48-year-old Herrlich apologised to his squad after breaking a week-long quarantine by leaving the team hotel -- to buy toothpaste and skin cream -- before the Wolfsburg match last weekend.

"We were extremely stupid at the start," fumed Schalke coach David Wagner, whose side have leaked seven goals, scoring none, since the league resumed.

The German league's home curse struck again in Gelsenkirchen.

Augsburg doubled their lead 14 minutes from time when Schalke defender Salif Sane was wrong-footed by a long ball and substitute winger Bazee rifled home.
