Schalke surge through with beaten Lyon

FC Schalke 04 3-0 Olympique Lyonnais
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar struck twice as Schalke advanced to the knockout phase, while the result did not prevent the visitors from doing likewise.

FC Schalke 04 and Olympique Lyonnais both qualified for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League, although the hosts were the happier side on the night after a 3-0 victory carried them to the top of Group B.

Schalke did the damage in the first half with Jefferson Farfán scoring in the 13th minute and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar adding the second seven minutes later. The Netherlands forward then put the seal on an emphatic victory courtesy of a deflected shot a minute from time. Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC's historic win against SL Benfica provided welcome news for both clubs, with Lyon reaching the knockout rounds for an eighth successive season.

Farfán gave the home side an early lead after Raúl González had pounced on an attempted clearing header from Pape Diakhaté and tricked his way past Dejan Lovren. Raúl, the record scorer in UEFA Champions League history, turned provider on this occasion as his cross clipped off Diakhaté and fell perfectly for Farfán to slot in his second goal of the European campaign.

Home goalkeeper Manuel Neuer got his body behind efforts from Lisandro and Michel Bastos as Lyon pressed for an equaliser in an open start to the match, but Felix Magath's Schalke dominated the first-half chance count and duly doubled their advantage when Huntelaar provided a calm finish to a Peer Kluge cross.

José Manuel Jurado and his fellow Spaniard Raúl adorned the opening period with their skill and vision, and the latter – a hat-trick scorer against SV Werder Bremen at the weekend – hooked in an audacious, instinctive effort from 35 metres which Hugo Lloris did well to tip over.

Lyon made an adventurous substitution at half-time with centre-forward Bafétimbi Gomis replacing left-back Aly Cissokho, but coach Claude Puel's plans were thrown into disarray on the hour when playmaker Yoann Gourcuff was taken off on a stretcher suffering an injury to his right ankle. Kim Källström went closest to pulling one back after 72 minutes with a fierce volley which Neuer turned around his left post with his feet.

Huntelaar's deflected strike on 89 minutes totally wrong-footed Lloris and was the perfect way for Schalke to sign off on a 100% home record in the group stage. The striker and his team-mates will now bid to seal first place in the section when they travel to face Benfica on December 7. A point off the summit, Lyon entertain Hapoel on the same day.
