Eintracht battled back after Klaas-Jan Huntelaar had put the hosts in front in the 15th minute, scoring on the rebound after his penalty was saved.

Andre Silva levelled in the 29th and Evan Ndicka put them 2-1 up six minutes after the restart.

But Schalke, in last place, struck three times in 12 minutes through Blendi Idrizi, Florian Flick and Matthew Hoppe to turn the game around.

Portuguese Silva struck again to set a club record with a his 27th league goal in the season, one better than Bernd Hoelzenbein’s 1976/77 run, but it was not enough as Schalke’s win boosted their Ruhr valley rivals’ chances of a fourth-place finish.
