Schalke top Hannover, end five-match winless run in Bundesliga
Schalke moved up to fourth in the Bundesliga on Friday thanks to a 3-1 win over Hannover, which ended a five-game wait for a win.
Johannes Geis opened his account for the Royal Blues from the penalty spot five minutes into the second half, with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar adding a second.
Kenan Karaman hit the post before Allan Saint-Maximin scored his first Bundesliga goal with a shot into the top right-hand corner which shook Schalke.
Hannover's hopes of recovering were dashed within a minute, though, as Franco Di Santo's opportunistic header sealed all three points for the hosts, who moved to fourth ahead of the remaining weekend matches.
