Fortuna Düsseldorf defeat Schalke 2-1

Fortuna Düsseldorf beat Schalke 2-1 at home last night, increasing their chances of avoiding relegation from the German Bundesliga. The first half of the game was rather quiet with only a couple of chances created by either end of the field by both teams. The scoring opened in the second half with Weston McKennie’s 53rd-minute goal putting the visitors in the front. His phenomenal diving header converting Bastian Oczipka’s cross would have sent ripples of cheers among the crowd, had the stadium not been empty due to the match being played behind closed doors in consideration of the pandemic.

Schalke desperately tried for a comeback but a brilliant defence from the home kept out the visitors’ long balls easily.
