Schalke now have five goals. Five. Yes, the number when you hold up your hand and count your fingers. They have scored that many goals at the San Siro against Inter Milan. A team who is starting a fourth choice striker and who sold their most creative player in January has scored five goals on the road against the defending UEFA Champions League champions. I cannot even count the ways that this is absolutely ridiculous and absurd.
Nevermind, yes I can. It's ridiculous in five ways. This goal came via the aforementioned fourth choice striker, Edu, assisted by Alexander Baumjohann. It was a fantastic finish from 20 yards out, but it followed a sequence in which Edu previously hit the post after Inter were absolutely torn apart by a Schalke team that, once again, didn't actually do anything that stunning. Inter just haven't shown up for the second half. They look like a youth team. It's been an absolutely embarrassing performance, and they deserve to lose.
