A broker holding the opening minute was destroyed for Galatasaray in the important championship match against Schalke, as Guido Burgstaller said, winning 2-0.
Martin Linnes and his teammates are, therefore, poor in the championship league championship. There are four points to Schalke in second place, with two remaining games to play. Porto wins again, has two lucky points on the top table and has only one point to ensure promotion to the cup game.
Linnes started again, as he did in all the championship matches this season, but was replaced by a break. Then the host team made 1-0 after a good chance of both teams.
"First of all we played at the championship level, but after Schalke's second goal we fell together. Then we stopped the game," said Galatiasay coach, Fatih Terim, according to uefa.com.
"I feel with our followers who made us feel at home. We left two games to play, and in Moscow in the next match we will get at least the third place.
Fernando Muslera's mistake after 3 minutes was a lenient kick for the visitors. The goalkeeper moved and threw the ball when Burgstaller was played on the right side but he missed and slipped out of the 16 meter range. So he had to leave the ball, and Burgstaller ran away, turned it and turned it into a gap from a very sharp angle.
Galatasaray did not break the score and created more good opportunities first. Goalkeeper Alexander Nübel was added to a few attempts. The biggest chance was Garry Rodrigues when he was played, but he did not hit goals with his end.
Schalke had an even greater chance when Sebastian Rudy pushed the post in front of Muslera.
Burgstaller scored for the center and was replaced by Schalke's lead 57 minutes into the game. He was waiting for the kick-off, and after a good swim of the field up the middle came. Mark Uth used a touch before pulling into the corner.
– Objectives are important for a point. I do not know how many matches I have been without words, said Uth, who, in the Saturday Series in Hannover, scored his first goal in 13 games.
From there the home team assured the points, which means a long step towards the championship cup game.
Porto defeated Lokomotiv Moscow 4-1 with Héctor Herrera, Moussa Marega, Jesús Corona and Otávio and took three weeks against Schalke to form his final team as the leader.
For Galatasaray, the comfort is that the team has four points that lead to Lokomotiv Moscow in the third team match that gives a European style.
