Nabil Bentaleb seems to have turned a corner at Schalke and the press have got off his back. Three goals in two games has silenced everyone for now.
German website DW say the Schalke revival shows no sign of stopping thanks to one man in particular, Nabil Bentaleb. Mainz were defeated 3-0 with Bentaleb grabbing the first and third goals after 23 and 62 minutes.
His first was drilled home from inside the box and his second was a team passing game down the left that he arrived in the area to slot home. He scored last week against Augsburg with a left-footed drive from outside the box. After sitting bottom they have now moved up to 14th and next week face Borussia Dortmund.
