The contribution of the number 25 against Hamburg SV was crucial, Huntelaar scored 3 goals and he made the assist for the temporary draw of Bastos. At the end Schalke won 4 – 1 at the Veltins Arena.

Huntelaar scored first goal with an easy tap in from a cross by Draxler. The second one is very similar to the first, but in this goal the assist was served by Raffael. The Dutchman scored the third with a accurate header, that slips behind Adler and goes into the net.

The supply of Huntelaar is very important for the team of Gelschenkirchen, the recovery of ex-Ajax can represent a certainty in attack for the season finale. Huntelaar has scored 10 goals this season and with a hat-trick of yesterday he surpassed his countryman Bas Dost in the ranking of goals scored.
