Bai­ley makes timely ar­rival

Sport360 - - Football Bundesliga -

Sub­sti­tute Leon Bai­ley de­nied Schalke all three points at the Veltin­sArena as Bayer Lev­erkusen forced a 1-1 draw last night.

Af­ter a slow start, Schalke took the ini­tia­tive with left­back Bas­tian Oczipka fizzing a shot just wide. En­cour­aged, the Royal Blues poured for­ward and in the 34th minute won a free-kick, which Leon Goret­zka dis­patched into the top cor­ner.

But a dou­ble sub­sti­tu­tion at the break paid div­i­dends for Bayer on the hour mark as Ja­maican winger Bai­ley found the back of the net with a de­flected ef­fort.
