BERLIN - Portugal's Sporting Lisbon have lodged a protest with European soccer's governing body UEFA and demanded a rematch with Schalke 04 after a last-gasp penalty gave the Germans a 4-3 win in their Champions League game on Tuesday.
"The green-whites (of Sporting) have demanded the match to be played again or alternatively to receive the bonus for a draw," Schalke said in a statement on Thursday.
"Schalke 04 have been asked by UEFA for their position on the matter and will submit this shortly while taking into consideration the protection of the club's own interests."
