Schalke advanced to the Bundesliga after the season

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) – Schalke secured a promotion back to the Bundesliga after defeating St. Pauli 3: 2 after two goals.

Rodrigo Zalazar scored the winning goal in the 78th minute shortly after Simon Terodde equalized for Schalke. Terodde started the penalty with a penalty in the 47th minute, when Igor Matanovič scored twice for the guests in the first half.

Schalke, who dropped out of Germany’s top division last season, is confident that she will finish in the top two in the second league, regardless of the results in the last round next weekend.

Hamburger SV, Darmstadt and Werder Bremen lagged behind by five points, while St. Pauli only has a mathematical chance to move back three points.

St. Pauli finished the game in Gelsenkirchen with nine players, when 19-year-old Marcel Beifus received a red card for a bad foul on Florian Flick and the scorer Matanovič was eliminated late with two yellow cards.

Schalke fans lunged at the pitch, and the players burst into tears as other supporters set off the pyrotechnics to celebrate the team’s return to the Bundesliga.
