Schalke snatched an unlikely victory against top four hopefuls Eintracht Frankfurt in an exciting encounter that saw the hosts record a 4-3 drubbing, where André Silva scored a brace to save some skin for the visitors.

Silva, who joined from Milan after a one-season stint at Sevilla, was turned into a permanent transfer after his on-loan 2019/20 season. The 2020/21 season has seen him surpass expectations.

He has undertaken an unprecedented goalscoring form for Die Adler this season.

By scoring a brace against Schalke, Silva has surpassed Frankfurt’s Bundesliga record set by legendary striker Bernd Hölzenbein of 26 goals during the 1976/77 season – a historic 45-year-old feat set by the club’s all-time goalscorer.

The Portuguese marksman has 27 goals, with one match left to play.

He also has 5 assists to his name in 31 appearances in the league.

Silva has recorded a goal conversion rate of 29% with 93 total shots on goal - of which 27 have turned in.

He has scored a goal every 99 minutes this season in the league.
