Racing Santander 1 - Schalke '04 1
Pinillos, César Navas, Marcano, Sepsi; Lacen, Colsa; Munitis, Jonathan
Pereira,Oscar Serrano; Tchité. 4-2-3-1.
A packed Sardinero stadium saw Racing Santander pick up their first point at the league stage, although they need positive results in their next matches against Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City if they are to reach the next round.
After their win at Valencia on Sunday the Cantabrians were in a positive mood, and Jonathan Pereira put Neuer to the test with only three minutes on the clock. Toño did well to keep out Engelaar at the other end a few minutes later, but Neuer was in action again before the break to save a deflected shot from Munitis.
Twelve minutes in to the second half Racing took the lead, Tchité finishing off from close up after Pereira's effort was blocked by the keeper. But only five minutes later the German side equalised, Engelaar beating Toño with an angled shot from outside of the area. Both sides had chances after that, Navas heading wide and Farfán going close with a free kick, but in the end they settled for a draw.
