Second round in Madrid after 0-2 in Gelsenkirchen.
REAL MADRID - SCHALKE 04
Real Madrid is undergoing a little negative period.
Last 2 Liga results haven't had an happy ending: 1-1 in Santiago Bernabeu against Villareal and the loss in Bilbao vs Athletic 1-0.
Real is now 2nd in the league since Barcelona won last 2 matches.
Real Madrid has almost obtained the qualification by winning in Germany but tonight they are forced to win, and mainly show a good performance, in order to reject the critiques Real had during the week. Goals should not be missing.
REAL MADRID: Casillas; Carvajal, Varane, Pepe, Marcelo;
Illarramendi (o Lucas Silva), Kroos, Isco; Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema.
SCHALKE 04: Wellenreuther; Howedes, Matip (o Ayhan), Nastasic; Barnetta, Uchida, Neustadter, Meyer, Fuchs; Huntelaar, Choupo-Moting.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 3-0
