Nabil Bentaleb has scored a first half brace for Schalke in their Champions League round of sixteen match against Manchester City.

The midfielder has found the back of the net twice within the first 45 minutes at the Veltins Arena courtesy of two penalties.

Bentaleb broke into the first team at Spurs under Tim Sherwood before playing a pivotal part in Mauricio Pochettino’s first season, only got his relationship with the manager to break down after a spell out injured.

His time on the sidelines allowed other midfielders including Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele to take their chance.

This evening he has shown his composure from the penalty spot in what was a first half full of action.

The 24-year-old has now been with the Bundesliga outfit for three seasons and has grown both as a player and a person.

Here’s how some Spurs fans have reacted to the Algerian’s goals in the first leg.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Bentaleb scores 2 pens in a game where a 10 man Man City defeat them 3-2 and now we should sign him again? How quickly people forget that a defence consisting of lloris, walker, Dier, Vertonghen and a bang in form Danny rose, was the 3rd worst defence in the whole premier league with Bentaleb in midfield offering zero protection.
