Rodrigo Zalazar: We need to keep climbing up the table!

There was huge applause for Rodrigo Zalazar from the travelling support when he was substituted in the final minute of regular time of FC Schalke 04’s 2-0 victory over local rivals VfL Bochum on Saturday (4/3). The midfielder directly contributed to both goals, providing the cross which led to Manuel Riemann’s own goal, and then taking the corner which was put away but Marius Bülter to double the Royal Blues’ advantage.
