Pukki salvages 2-2 draw for Schalke at Hannover

Pukki salvages 2-2 draw for Schalke at Hannover

Finland striker Teemu Pukki scored twice in his first Bundesliga start for Schalke to salvage a 2-2 draw at Hannover on Sunday.
Pukki opened the scoring in the 26th minute and tied the game in the 73rd, after an own goal from Kyriakos Papadopoulos in the 29th and Mohammed Abdellaoue's header in the 59th had given Hannover the lead.
Pukki took the ball past the outrushing Ron-Robert Zieler with his first touch and then slotted into the empty net for his first Bundesliga goal.
He scored again from a narrow angle after a great run from Jefferson Farfan.
Schalke missed the chance to go second and dropped to fifth, three points ahead of Hannover.
Bottom side Augsburg hosted league leader Bayern Munich later Sunday.
