Kevin-Prince Boateng and Joël Matip got Schalke off to a flying start, but Anthony Modeste hauled the hosts back into the game.

Höger then restored Schalke's two-goal advantage before the interval with a fine individual effort.

The 24-year-old received the ball from a Dennis Aogo throw-in and ventured straight towards goal.

Höger beat four Hoffenheim defenders before slotting the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Koen Casteels.

However, a Roberto Firmino penalty and a David Abraham free-kick saw Hoffenheim snatch back two points from their opponents.
