Souleymane Camara's last-minute equaliser gave ten-man Montpellier Hérault SC a maiden UEFA Champions League Group B point in a dramatic draw at FC Schalke 04.

Schalke sporting director Horst Heldt had said last Friday's 2-2 Bundesliga draw at Fortuna Düsseldorf, in which his team squandered a two-goal lead, felt "like a 5-0 defeat". Heldt will have a similar feeling after seeing the hosts come from behind to lead before being denied a second successive group win with seconds left.

You could say that we dropped two points but then we also have four points under our belt already and we just need to keep going strong.
