Schalke 3-2 Besiktas - As it happened!

Schalke's build-up to the new Bundesliga season continued with a topsy-turvy 3-2 win over Turkish giants Besiktas in China.

Amine Harit's first goal in Royal Blue got Schalke underway before further strikes from 19-year-old midfielder Luke Hemmerich and Ukrainian winger Yevhen Konoplyanka saw the Bundesliga club race into a 3-0 lead. Besiktas did manage to claw things back late on, however, with a brace from Cenk Tosun to set up a grandstand finish in Zhuhai.
