BERLIN, March 16 (Xinhua) -- Schalke progressed into the next round after beating Monchengladbach 2-2 (3-3 on aggregate) on away goals in the Europa League's round of the last 16 on Thursday.

Raffael remained in the thick of things as he unleashed left-footed hammer from 19 meters, which missed the target just wide in the 22nd minute.

The host's efforts finally paid off 26 minutes into the encounter, as Andreas Christensen utilized a flicked on free kick to slot home with a deflected shot from the near post corner.

The Royal Blues remained unimpressed and responded after the restart as Leon Goretzka's long-range effort bounced over Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer to reduce the arrears to 2-1 in the 54th minute.

Schalke gained momentum while things went from bad to worse for the hosts in the 68th minute when referee Mark Clattenburg awarded the visitors a controversial handball. Nabil Bentaleb stepped up and leveled the scores from the penalty spot.

Monchengladbach pressed frenetically as they needed a win to advance into the next round. Nevertheless, Schalke were able protect the two-all draw as Monchengladbach lacked in accuracy in the closing period.

With the result, Schalke secured their first European quarterfinal since 2012, while Monchengladbach will have to keep waiting. The last time they advanced to a European quarterfinal was 21 years ago.

"We had the will and bounced back. We rewarded ourselves with the 2-2 draw and believed in us. That's why we progressed today," Schalke head coach Markus Weinzierl said.

Monchengladbach head coach Dieter Hecking was sour about the result of the match. "We unfortunately crashed out of this competition. It is disappointing but we have to accept the defeat. It wasn't a handball penalty from my perspective."
