#BLFantasy: Embolo makes mark in Schalke win

Coming in at 12 million, Breel Embolo may not be the cheapest of forwards for your Official Fantasy Bundesliga team, but his first official outing in an FC Schalke 04 shirt showed that he could nevertheless be something of a bargain.

Royal Blues coach Markus Weinzierl showed his summer recruit plenty of faith by giving him a lead role in their 4-1 DFB Cup win over FC 08 Villingen, and the former FC Basel 1893 forward did not let him down.

Playing in a bold 3-4-3 formation, the 19-year-old linked up well with fellow forwards Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Franco Di Santo, teeing up an early sight of goal for the latter before marking his debut in style with Schalke's second, underlining his poaching qualities which could make him a Fantasy snip.
