Result: Schalke 04 move level with second-placed Borussia Dortmund

Max Meyer and Jefferson Farfan score in the second half as Schalke eventually make their dominance pay against Eintracht Frankfurt to win 2-0 at the Veltins-Arena.

Max Meyer and Jefferson Farfan were on the scoresheet as Schalke 04 eventually made their dominance pay to beat Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 at the Veltins-Arena.

It took until the 59th minute for the hosts to go ahead, and, although Klaas Jan Huntelaar would later miss a penalty, Jefferson Farfan's stoppage-time second secured them three points which take them joint second.

Huntelaar was denied from point-blank range after the half-hour mark, while both he and Kevin Prince Boateng would waste great chances in what was a one-way, but goalless first period in Gelsenkirchen.

Reported Arsenal target Julian Draxler was also guilty of missing the target from inside the penalty area, but Schalke would get the goal that their play deserved during a frantic 59th minute.

Saed Kolasinac struck the woodwork from distance before play was recycled to provide Huntelaar with an opportunity which was parried by Frankfurt keeper Kevin Trapp, allowing Meyer to tap in.

Schalke should have extended their advantage when Carlos Zambrano fouled Draxler in the penalty area, but Huntelaar saw his low spot kick well saved by Trapp, diving to his right.

Frankfurt, who sit safely in midtable, nine points clear of the relegation zone, rarely threatened apart from when Joselu forced decent stops from Ralf Fahrmann either side of the break.

Martin Lanig headed wide for the visitors from six yards on 83 minutes, but Schalke put the result beyond doubt in the final stages when Farfan found the bottom corner with a 25-yard free kick.

The result sees Schalke join second-placed Borussia Dortmund on 58 points.
