Sidney Sam scored in Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 win over Schalke 04

Share |

With a surprising counter attack, Bayern Leverkusen crushed Schalke 04 hopes of getting three points and scale some positions in the Bundesliga. Indeed, Jupp Heynckes's team beat Schalke 1-0 and are now in the third position of the tournament.

Even when Leverkusen don't have their captain Michael Ballack, the team seems to be equilibrated and lucky enough to win games like these. It's true that Felix Magath's side dominated the actions most of the time, but their poor precision of their strikers was the key for their defeat.

Sidney Sam netted the opener after a long pass by Sven Bender. Keeper Manuel Neuer could do nothing to stop the blast. And Schalke, who were launching several attacks at that point, had no reaction after this goal.
