Borussia Mönchengladbach seemed destined for the last eight of the Europa League when Mahmoud Dahoud gave them a 2-0 lead on the night. But Schalke produced a fine comeback, albeit with a slice of luck, to progress.
Domenico Tedesco's appointment flew under the radar and his team are doing the same. After a patchy start, Schalke are rising up the table and they welcome a Hamburg side treading water, as the Bundesliga returns.
Germany's representatives in the Europa League are approaching tough challenges in different ways. Hoffenheim have renewed confidence after their first win but it's all about pride and experience for Cologne & Hertha.
Cologne and Hertha Berlin suffer more misery in Europe with both suffering defeats, but Hoffenheim rescued their flailing Europa League campaign with their first ever win in Europe. All the action as it happened.
Cologne's woes continued with a 1-0 home loss to Red Star Belgrade on Matchday 2 while Hertha went down by the same score at Sweden's Ostersund. Cologne were unlucky to lose while Hertha bemoaned a penalty award.
