Choose a money-back bet for Real Madrid vs Schalke
The European Champions League resumes on Tuesday, March 10 with Real Madrid of the Spanish La Liga hosting German Bundesliga side Schalke. Real has the lead in this round-of-16 knockout tie after winning the first leg 2-0 in Germany and it’s going to take a superb effort from Schalke to reverse the score and qualify for the quarterfinal stage. If the match is level on aggregate after 90 minutes the match will go to the away-goal rules. If it’s all even, which means Schalke wins 2-0, then it will go to extra time. If it’s still level the contest will be decided by a penalty shootout.
Real manager Carlo Ancelotti said he will play his usual style even though his strikers are struggling at the moment. This includes Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo as the team hasn’t scored from open play in their last two matches. They’ve also lost their grip on top of the Spanish league and are now looking up at new leaders Barcelona. Bale hasn’t score in his past eight outings and is hoping to get back on track here. Luka Modric may return to Real’s lineup for this match after being sidelined since November with a torn thigh muscle.
Schalke, who are managed by former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo, are fifth in the German league after beating Hoffenheim 3-1 on Saturday. The club is hoping to have midfielder Leon Goretzka back in the squad after suffering a muscle injury.
