Howedes still hopeful

Schalke captain Benedikt Howedes remains optimistic that the Bundesliga club can still qualify for the group stage of the Champions League despite a 1-1 draw with PAOK Thessaloniki Wednesday night.

I presume that PAOK will play similar to how they played here.

They are going to bunker themselves in at the back and wait for a chance on the counter attack and hope to land a lucky punch.

We're going to have to prevent that while getting a goal ourselves.
