Schalke, who were the better side on the night, managed to score the only goal of the match in the 75th minute through Baba Rahman.
Ghana defender Baba Rahman is over excited after scoring his debut goal for his German club, Schalke 04, in the UEFA Europa league match against OGC Nice on Thursday night.
Schalke, who were the better side on the night, managed to score the only goal of the match in the 75th minute through the Chelsea loanee shot from the side of the box found the bottom left corner.
Rahman told reporters after the match: "This is my first Europa League goal and I am over the moon. We are getting stronger from week to week. We are getting better by implementing the ideas of the manager."
The former Augsburg left back picked up a booking in the match which Schalke largely dominated, despite chances for Balotelli and Alassane Plea in the second half.
Rahman moved to Schalke on loan during the summer after being deemed surplus to requirements by new Blues coach Antonio Conte.
