Schalke snatch dramatic win

AFP, Berlin

Amine Harit's superb last-minute goal saw Schalke snatch a dramatic win over Mainz and move to second in the Bundesliga on Friday, level on points with league leaders RB Leipzig.

Schalke have 10 points having played a game more than Leipzig, who travel to Werder Bremen on Saturday, and are two ahead of champions Bayern Munich before their home match with Cologne thanks to Harit’s last gasp solo effort. The Moroccan international won the match for the hosts when he collected the ball and darted towards goal before curling home a spectacular winner with the outside of his boot into the bottom corner.

Harit was also the architect of Schalke’s opener, playing a perfect pass into Suat Serdar's path before the German smashed home in the 36th minute.

The defeat was tough on Mainz, who remain third-from-bottom despite Karim Onisiwo grabbing the away side a deserved leveller 14 minutes before Harit snatched the three points.

Mainz are in the relegation play-off place after losing for the fourth time in five matches.

Mainz struggled on Friday night in Gelsenkirchen.

This was far from a surprise for those who watched the game or are in fact Mainz fans. Mainz haven't won here in eight years, and this time they had no answer for the resurgent Amine Harit. The Moroccan delivered a delicious assist for Schalke's opener before scoring an outrageous outside of the foot effort in the final minute that canceled out Karim Onisiwo's equally beautiful goal earlier on. There will deservedly be tweets, posts and articles written about Harit. Afterwards, the 22-year-old said increased focus and the fact he recently became a father has left him feeling more responsible.
