Congratulations, Bayer Leverkusen. You get a Champions League place!
Unless, you choke, which is kind of your thing, but it’s also kinda Schalke’s thing. So…
Schalke fans left early so they could get in line for next season’s Europa League tickets.
I feel ya, Roberto.
It’s a good thing Schalke have that frightening players’ tunnel because that’s what some of the stadiums they’re going to play at in next season’s Europa League look like.
Fuchs is hurt and Schalke have used all three of their subs. The conspiracy is so real.
The world is conspiring against Schalke, which is new for them because usually they conspire against themselves.
Somehow, that is NOT a handball. Things are going well for Schalke.
If Bayer win, they’ll jump Gladbach for third place, which means no playoff to get into the Champions league group stage.
Schalke have sent nearly everyone forward, but they can’t actually get the ball forward. That’s not ideal.
Schalke aren’t getting Max Meyer many touches, which explains why they’re totally useless. And worthless. And seriously get him the ball.
Bayer subbing Calhanoglu on for Son is really problematic because I want to watch them both together. Pretty rude not to give me that chance, in my opinion.
“You can get up now. I bought your dive.”
Fuchs has a go on the half-volley and it juuuuuust goes wide. COOL THINGS ONLY IN THIS MATCH.
If they canceled this match and made it a free kick contest, we would all be winners.
It would be surprising to see Schalke lose this game and just fall out of the Champions League picture. If they aren’t going to make the top four, classic Schalke would overtake Bayer then blow their lead in the last few matches.
It’s halftime with Bayer up 1-0 because Rolfes makes pretty basses and Bellarabi murders the ball when he shoots.
Schalke’s Champions League hopes are slipppppping away.
Schalke made a 42nd minute substitution, not due to injury. So ya, things aren’t going swimmingly for the home side.
I’m telling you, this league sustains the flag industry.
Bellarabi takes a perfect through ball and from a sharp angle just decides to hit the ball as hard as he can at the goalkeeper’s head. It worked!
This is how you intimidate a ref.
The best players for both teams have been their goalkeepers. So yes, it has been really, really, really fun.
Bayer Leverkusen got knocked out of the Champions League this week because they stupidly went in on a bunch of challenges and conceded set pieces.
Credit to them for consistency, though. They’re doing the same thing today!
The Bundesliga is going to be so great next season when we don’t have to depend on illegal streams to watch. RIP GolTV.
A win moves Schalke level on points with Bayer for the final Champions League place. Draaaama.
Wow, Schalke making a late case for us to root for them on account of AWWWWW!
Also, Max Meyer is great.
The Bundesliga sustains the entire flag industry.
It’s a 4 vs 5 matchup in the Bundesliga, and we’re rooting for Bayer Leverkusen because they’re fun and Schalke’s miner’s tunnel gives me nightmares.
