JOVIC AT THE DOUBLE!!!

He's done it again! Kostic is the provider with a fine threaded pass. Jovic has it all to do, but stands up Kabak before firing back across Fährmann at his near post. Game, set and match.

HOPPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

Another fine shift from Hoppe. He was given little to feed on, but took his chance like a seasoned pro. He could make all the difference for struggling Schalke come the end of the season.

IT HAD TO BE!

Somebody's read the script... Luka Jovic restores Frankfurt's lead! Serbian countryman Kostic stands up a cross which the Real Madrid loanee thunders into the roof of the net from close range. Ring rust? What ring rust?!

DOGGED SCHALKE

Credit where credit is due: Schalke have made life very difficult for Frankfurt since Hoppe's equaliser. They're unrecognisable from the side Gross inherited over Christmas. Kudos to the well-travelled coach for that.
63'

HERE COMES JOVIC

Very positive change from Adi Hütter: Jovic, a striker, is on for wing-back Durm. It was a Jovic back-heeled volley that dumped Schalke out of the DFB Cup at the semi-final stage back in 2017/18 - just saying...

WIDE FROM HARIT

Ndicka only half clears Uth's corner. Harit takes aim with the follow-up, but can't find the target.

HINTEREGGER FEELING IT

Frankfurt's talismanic defender can't continue - he's clearly still struggling with that first-half blow to one of his knees. Australian midfielder Ajdin Hrustic is his replacement, in a change that sees Makoto Hasebe revert to defence.

ALL SQUARE

Frankfurt have had the better chances, and deservedly went ahead through Silva's 12th Bundesliga goal of the season. That lead lasted barely 60 seconds, though, with Hoppe putting away his fourth Bundesliga goal in two games to bring Schalke level. Will we see Jovic in the second half?

BIG RALF

Silva's on the prowl again, running in behind the Schalke defence to collect Barkok's through-ball. He takes aim from a tight angle, but Fährmann throws up steel-like wrists to keep it out. Vindication for new coach Gross, who recently confirmed the 32-year-old will be the club's No.1 goalkeeper going forward.
36'

THE GOAL BROKERS

That was Silva's 12th of the league campaign - only Lewandowski has scored more. Hoppe, meanwhile, has struck four times in just six Bundesliga appearances. And get this: his last four efforts on goal have all gone in!
29'

HOPPE LEVELS

Matthew Hoppe brings Schalke level, and it's another clinical finish from last week's hat-trick hero. The American collects for Stambouli, gets the better of Ndicka and outpaces Hinteregger, before slotting through the legs of Trapp. What a response!

SILVAAAAAAA!

Who else? A spot of pinball ends with Durm having a punt on his left foot. It's going wide, and pretty much hits Silva on the chest. He manages to fashion a chance, though, digging the ball out from under his feet and firing low into the bottom corner on the turn.

OFF THE POST!

Hinteregger gets his head to Younes' near-post corner, flicking an effort beyond Fährmann's outstretched arm and onto the woodwork. N'Dicka swipes at the rebound, but is leaning back and scoops over.
22'

TEASING BALL

Schalke win a free-kick out on the right, midway through the Frankfurt half. Harit, who produced a hat-trick of assists last time out, shapes to take - but instead it's Uth with an in-swinger. The ball travels a long way... evading everyone. All it needed was a touch goalwards...
17'

'MEGS HIM

Cool as you like from Younes as he slips the ball through the legs of Kabak. The Napoli loanee can't bring the ball under wraps, though, and it goes out for a goal-kick. That was naughty.

HINTEREGGER OK

Frankfurt's Hinteregger goes knee-to-knee with Serdar, whilst contesting a 50-50 ball. The physio attends to the Austrian, who is able to resume play.

CLOSE!

Frankfurt with the first meaningful attempt on goal. Barkok loses possession momentarily, but Durm is onto the loose ball and cuts it back to the Morocco international. He gets plenty of venom behind the shot, but it swerves just wide with Fährmann at full stretch.
1'

UNDER WAY!

The ball's rolling in Frankfurt. Schalke need a result to climb back off the foot of the table following Mainz's draw in Dortmund on Saturday. A second successive win would take them to within two points of Cologne in the relegation play-off spot. Victory for Frankfurt, on the other end, would lift them to within two points of the top four.
Kick-off!

ADIOS, DAVID

Frankfurt captain David Abraham plays his final Bundesliga game, before returning to his native Argentina to be with his family. The meeting with Schalke will be Abraham’s 185th appearance of a Bundesliga career that began at Hoffenheim eight years ago.

JOVIC ON THE BENCH

Real Madrid loanee Luka Jovic makes the squad, some 610 days after his first Frankfurt spell ended in a 5-1 defeat to Bayern. Top scorer Andre Silva leads the line, with Aymen Barkok preferred to Daichi Kamada in attacking midfield.

RAMAN IN

Christian Gross makes one change to the side that snapped a 30-game winless run with victory over Hoffenheim last weekend. It's an enforced one, with the injured Alessandro Schöpf replaced by Benito Raman on the the right-hand side of midfield. Omar Mascarell is only fit enough for the bench following a thigh problem.
