    • Schalke 04
    • Hapoel Tel Aviv
    • 90' The referee blows for full time. A fairly straightforward win for the homeside, who keep on Lyon's coattails in Group B.
    • 90' GOAL for Hapoel! The excellent Shechter finishing from six yards after a free-kick is completely missed by the home defence. It wasn't pretty, but the striker won't care about that!
    • 90' Fransman cuts out a dangerous cross just before Huntelaar can knock it into the net, so close for Schalke!
    • 90' Three minutes of added time are to be played.
    • 88' The game is fizzling out, both sides seem to be waiting for the final whistle.
    • 86' Rakitic fires in a dangerous cross which is excellently cleared by Shish, Huntelaar was waiting to pounce.
    • 83' Raul will be desperate for his record-breaking hat-trick, and he might just get it. Hapoel are looking very leggy now, the home side knocking it about with some authority.
    • 81' Schalke come again, the very lively Rakitic firing well over from just outside the area.
    • 79' Hapoel have been brave and industrious tonight, but they just have not done enough in the final third. Manuel Neuer in the Schalke goal has had his feet up all night.
    • 75' Schalke are happy to let Hapoel have the ball, this game is over.
    • 72' Matip comes on for Jones in the Schalke midfield.
    • 68' WHAT A GOAL FOR SCHALKE! Jurado has been awesome tonight and he has just put the icing on the cake, curling a beauty in off the post from 15 yards, stunning.
    • 67' Hao replaces Farfan for Schalke
    • 66' Another great save from Enyeama! The Hapoel keeper getting down well to deny Jurado from 12 yards. Schalke are turning the screw here.
    • 65 In all that excitement I forgot to tell you about some substitutions! Ex-Chelsea man, Ben Sahar and Salim Toama come on for Hapoel, replacing Shay Abutbul and Toto Toama.
    • 62' Fantastic save from Enyeama, the keeper palming Rakitic's effort over the bar!
    • 58' GOAL for Schalke! It's Raul again! A lovely move, Rakitic crossing for the Spaniard, who sidefoots home from six yards. That ties the striker with Gerd Müller as the highest scorer in European football, 68 goals a piece!
    • 56' Huntelaar hits the crossbar twice! Enyeama makes a terrible hash of a Jurado cross and the Dutchman manages to head the ball onto the bar, it comes back out and he does it again! Incredible!
    • 53 First change of the night, and it's for Schalke. Rakitic comes on for Moritz.
    • 52' A blatant hand-ball from Shish is missed by the referee, the defender cheekily stopping Schalke's counter-attack.
    • 52' The home support is incredible, they haven't shut-up all night.
    • 49' Great work from Farfan, as he wriggles away from two defenders and plays the ball to Huntelaar, who lays off to Moritz, but the midfielder's shot is weak and wide.
    • 47' Early chance for Raul, the Spaniard firing a weak effort straight into the arms of Vincent Enyeama.
    • 46' William Collum starts the second-half at the Veltins Arena.
    • 45 The referee blows for half time.
    • 43 Huntelaar tries his luck from 20 yards but Enyeama beats the ball away, somewhat spectacularly. One for the cameras.
    • 42 Kende fires in a volley from just outside the box, but it is well held by Neuer.
    • 41 Shechter, who has been very lively for the away side, beats two and heads to the byline, he picks out Abutbul on the edge of the box, but his shot is blocked.
    • 38 Farfan goes in the book for a hack from behind on Yadin.
    • 37 Farfan breaks down the right and crosses for Huntelaar, the Dutchman's header hitting the chest of Badir. The home side scream for handball and penalty, nothing doing.
    • 34 Hapoel are enjoying the majority of possesion, almost 60% of the play, but they have created almost nothing.
    • 33 Schmitz fires in a dangerous cross from the right which is well cleared by Kende.
    • 31 First yellow card of the match. Vermouth overruns the ball and goes in late on Huntelaar trying to atone for his error.
    • 28 More good work from the away side, Tamuz working himself some space for a shot, but it is deflected wide.
    • 26 BIG chance for Huntelaar! A wonderful move from the home side. Jurado charges down the left and plays a weighted through-ball to the Dutchman, who can only fire at Enyeama from eight yards.
    • 22 Vermouth plays a fantastic ball out to Shechter on the right, the frontman charges into the box but plays a very disappointing ball into the centre which is easily cleared by Uchida.
    • 19 Huntelaar breaks free from his marker and heads into the Hapoel box, however his next touch is too heavy and Badir nips in to clear.
    • 17 Uchida is clearly the Japanese Rory Delap. He launches a huge throw-in into the box causing havoc amongst the Hapoel defence. Douglas finally scrambles the ball clear.
    • 13 Uchida breaks down the right for Schalke, but his cross is over hit and misses everyone in the box.
    • 11 Hapoel have reacted well to going behind so early. They are having a lot of possession but not really testing the Schakle defence.
    • 8 The home side are looking very dangerous on the break whenever Hapoel try to stage an attack, Moritz in particular.
    • 6 Free-kick for Hapoel in a dangerous position, just to the right of the box. But the ball is easily cleared by the Schalke defence.
    • 3 GOAL for Schalke! And it's that man Raul with his 67th Champions League goal. Jurado plays the ball into Huntelaar who dummies, leaving the Spanish legend clean through, burying the ball into the bottom-left corner
    • 2 Early pressure from the home side, Jurado bursting down the left-flank and firing in a cross which is scrambled away.
    • 1 The first-half is underway.
    • The players run out into a packed Veltins Arena...
    • Hapoel currently sit bottom of Group B, having lost their two opening matches. Schalke are in second, after beating Benfica 2-0 on Matchday 2.
    • The two teams have not met before in European club competition and it is also the first time Schalke have faced a side from Israel.
