Pic Special: Schalke 1 Newcastle 3

Newcastle United ended their Schalke 04 Cup campaign on a high with a commanding 3-1 victory over hosts Schalke on Sunday.

Goals from summer signings Emmanuel Riviere and Remy Cabella were sandwiched either side of a Rolando Aarons effort as the Magpies put Saturday's disappointment against Malaga firmly behind them.

Riviere headed United in front on 18 minutes after excellent work from rookie winger Aarons in the build-up.

Aarons then turned goalscorer early in the second half when his shanked cross sailed over the head of home goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann, and Cabella put the result beyond any doubt with a cool one-on-one finish.

Schalke substitute Donis Avdijaj netted a consolation with the final kick of the match, but the result was no less than Newcastle deserved for a dominant performance in which they were resolute in defence and dangerous on the break against the German giants.
