FC Schalke 04 made light of their domestic travails as Julian Draxler's superb half-volley gave them victory at FC Basel 1893 and left the Bundesliga strugglers atop UEFA Champions League Group E.

The contrast could hardly be greater between the position of Jens Keller's side in uncomfortable proximity to the German top flight's relegation zone and their lofty European perch with a 100% record after two matches in the group stage. They owed their second successive triumph to Draxler, whose breathtaking 54th-minute strike was one of the visitors' rare highlights in a game in which the hosts proved the more enterprising.

Match in 5

  • Draxler returns from injury to score winner
  • Schalke have lost just one of last 12 European away fixtures
  • Basel fail to score for first time in 18 matches in all competitions
  • Bundesliga side top Group E with perfect record
  • Schalke host Chelsea next, Basel travel to Steaua

Reaction

Our opponent was too strong today. Our precision with the final pass was sometimes a bit off. It wasn’t our best day. Our attacking players weren’t able to have an impact on the game.

Unbelievable strike from Draxler but he meant to do that. The entire team fought bravely and worked hard against the ball. That's why I think the win was deserved in the end.
