Michy Batshuayi suffers suspected ankle break in derby match vs Schalke

The win sees Schalke go four points clear of third-place Bayer Leverkusen, with a place in next season's Champions League looking extremely likely.

The man who got the equaliser in added time was defender Naldo, and it was none other than the Brazilian who made a major impact in the return tie yet again.

The Royal Blues tighten their grip on second place after beating local rivals Borussia Dortmund on second-half goals from Yevhen Konoplyanka and Naldo at the 30th round of Bundesliga action on Sunday.

The midfielder also earned an assist for the strike that killed off the game (and nearly killed off the goal-net).

The 2-0 win puts Schalke in second in the Bundesliga table, although they are still an entire twenty points behind leaders Bayern Munich with just four games left.

The top four in Germany qualify for the Champions League.

Khris Middleton Sends Playoff Game To Overtime With Insane 3-Pointer
The Bucks shooting guard threw up a deep triple as time expired, draining a miraculous buzzer beater to send it to OT. The season series is tied up 2-2, with all four games decided by 11 points or less - and just 7.5 points on average.

Konoplyanka broke the deadlock five minutes after the break after a mistake from Marcel Schmelzer.

Dortmund's disappointing afternoon ended with Michy Batshuayi being stretchered off in injury time.

Schalke cut a better figure in front of the goal as Naldo secured all three points after unleashing 28-meter hammer past Dortmund goalie Roman Buerki in the closing period of the derby.

Elsewhere, Leipzig and Werder Bremen shared the spoils following a 1-1 draw.

With Leipzig looking beaten at half-time, Ralph Hasenhuettl brought on Lookman, who promptly equalised.

The goal brought the game to life in the second half, and both Bremen's Moisander and Leipzig's Timo Werner missed golden opportunities to net a victor in the dying minutes.
