    Weston very considerate in wearing some neon yellow cleats

    Weston, as always, gets on the end of a corner, but can't redirect it towards goal.

    12 minutes in and I'm not sure that I've heard Morales's name yet.

    WM playing a dual 8 with Bentaleb, it looks like, though he's dropped as a 6 in front of the back 4 a few times.

    Yank-on-Yank violence. McKennie slammed Morales in the ribs going for a header, and Morales is down receiving treatment.

    29': left-footed wonder goal by Kutucu, curled beautifully to the far post. McKennie with the flick-on from a throw, Uth plays it to Kutucu, who will score few goals prettier than that in his career.

    Schalke 1 - 0 Dusseldorf

    Hockey assist with McKennie using his head, Kutucu scores 1:0 Schalke.

    McKennie to Uth to Kutucu was definitely practiced.

    Schalke attack much more flowing today...didn't create dangerous chances before the goal but they look a lot better getting to Dusseldorf's box

    35': Morales just tried to hit one with the outside of his right foot, first-time, from about 25 yards. Went over, but had some good bend on it.

    COuple of terrible passes from Weston over the past 10 minutes. Last one creates really dangerous piece where the CD has to rashly take down the attacker and draws a yellow, could've been red.

    McKennie does not look sharp at all.

    ewww, Jeffry Bruma picks up a yellow and WM owes him dinner after a poorly conceived backpass is intercepted by Dusseldorf and it became man or ball, not both

    I'm not thinking Weston looks all that bad tonight...he's doing his main job well in providing defensive cover and cycling the ball around. Made a couple runs forward and the final ball has been underwhelming but he's bringing it a long way up and S04 attackers not making a lot of dynamic runs when he goes.

    Rudy on for Matondo at the half. Might be a bit of a switch in tactics for Schalke.

    Schalke make it 2. McKennie gets on the end of another corner, heads it at the keeper who saves, but can't hang on, and Sane bangs in the rebound.

    For a game where he hasn't been particularly sharp in the attack, McKennie has been really influential in the scoring.

    McKennie looks to be a factor on set pieces. Set pieces used to be huge for the U.S. in the 2000's. They kind of lost that when the Bocanegra generation retired. Maybe McKennie and the improvement of Miazga in the air can help bring that back.

    Schalke almost makes it 3! Another set piece, Sane puts it off one post, Kutucu puts it off the other post, and it's cleared.

    Now it's three. Another rebound, another goal, this one put in by Uth. McKennie not involved.
