Yevhen Konoplyanka, the Ukrainian winger of Schalke 04, significantly contributed to his team's performance in the game against Köln FC.
Early in the first half, the Ukrainian passed the ball to Embolo who opened the score; later, he went one-on-one and scored on his own. However, the two goals appeared to be not enough for the victory, as Köln equalized the score; Schalke lost two goals as well.
That, on the other hand, did not take them away from the second place in the ranking of the German Bundesliga. Borussia Dortmund comes third.
Previously, Bayern München became champions.
