Player statistic

Pretty much a game of two halves here, Doob dominated the first half opening the scoring after only 4 minutes through Montolivo, Schalke equalised with their own real foray into the Santiago half through Embolo bouncing off numerous defenders before slotting home. Santiago's pressure told and Villa curled home a delighful free kick to put the visitors back in front and it could and probably should have been more before the break.

Schalke had the better of the 2nd half but it took them till the 70th minute to find an equaliser, Sabitzer beating a defender before slotting home and the Austrian won the game with 7 minutes remaining latching onto a ball through from Embolo to bag the winner and the 3 points, Really unfortunate here Doob could have gone either way, Good luck for the remainder of the season.
