26-year old Franco Di Santo sat through the German Bundesliga game against Borussia Dortmund.

The Centre forward joined Schalke 04 from Werder Bremen in mid 2015 for a transfer fee of £4.5 million. He has failed to impress Coach Andre Breitenreiter this season, hence he has only played full 90 minutes this season in the German League.

Though the striker has been in 28 of 29 matches played this season in the German Bundesliga, missing only one in the game against SV Darmstadt, he has started ust 13 games. In the game against played on Sunday, Coach Breitenreiter just had other players in mind.

Borussia Dortmund went in early with the hope to win taking the lead on both occasions at the Veltins-Arena. They hoped to reduce the seven points’ difference behind leaders Bayern Munich with five games left to play this season. The Miners came from behind after each goal conceded to draw level.

B. Dortmund coach, Thomas Tuchel, in preparation for Thursday's Europa League quarter-final second leg against Liverpool at Anfield against former coach of his team, made eight changes to the first team.

All goals scored in the match came in the second half starting from Ex-Manchester United player, Shinji Kagawa, stunning goal then defender Matthias Ginter's header cancelled out by a Leroy Sane strike and a Klaas-Jan Huntelaar penalty.

The game leaves Schalke 04 in seventh position with 45 points from 29 matches but at least closer to fourth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach in the race for Champions League qualification.

In-form player Aubameyang almost got the winner for Dortmund in the final minutes but was denied by a Joel Matip block. The host on the other hand saw substitute Max Meyer lose a good opportunity leaving the end score line as 2-2.
