Half-Time Report: Schalke 04 back on level terms with 10-man Sporting Lisbon

After taking the lead, Sporting Lisbon have a man sent off and concede a goal in the space of 60 seconds as they enter the half-time break at Schalke 04 with the scores level at 1-1.

Schalke 04 have come from behind to claw the score back to 1-1 against the 10 men of Sporting Lisbon in their Champions League Group G game at the Veltins-Arena.

Nani curled an effort wide of the far post for the visitors in a frenetic opening to the encounter.

Sixteen minutes into the match, Nani went one better and put the Portuguese side ahead. The ball was played to the winger after a short corner and despite mishitting the shot, it evaded Klaas Jan Huntelaar and rolled into the back of the net.

The Germans almost struck back immediately though, as Julian Draxler flashed a volley wide of the upright.

Sporting's perfect start took a slight setback when Islam Slimani was forced from the pitch with an injury and replaced by Fredy Montero and matters soon became far worse.

Mauricio was shown a second yellow card for a late challenge on Marco Hoger in the 33rd minute, and they conceded just a minute later as Chinedu Obasi's weak effort squirmed away from Rui Patricio and spun into the back of the net.
