Schalke hold RB Leipzig to draw

23/04/2017

RB Leipzig failed to take full advantage of Bayern Munich's home draw with Mainz on Saturday as they were held 1-1 at Schalke.

A win would have put Ralph Hasenhuttl's side six points behind the defending champions, and looked on the cards when they created a string of early chances, going close through Emil Forsberg before Timo Werner scored after 14 minutes.

Schalke, for whom a draw maintained their cushion to the relegation playoff place, had started poorly and struggled to keep possession but were level moments after the break when Klaas-Jan Huntelaar headed home.

Leipzig could have grabbed a late winner, but Holger Badstuber made a fine clearance to scramble the ball away from his own goalline.
