Ronaldo, Marcelo Goals Shatter Schalke Champion League Dream

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo ended a three-game goal drought as Real Madrid took control of their Champions League last-16 tie with Schalke in Gelsenkirchen.

The forward’s form was questioned before kick-off but he headed in Dani Carvajal’s cross to open the scoring.

He also created the second goal which arrived moments after Schalke’s Felix Platte had smashed against the bar.

Marcelo capitalised, driving into the top corner, and the holders will take a healthy lead to Madrid on 10 March.

Los Blancos ended a 12-year wait to capture ‘La Decima’ – a 10th European Cup win – last season and thumped Schalke 9-2 on aggregate at the same stage of the competition.

While this result may not lead to such a convincing margin of victory, it was achieved with dominance from the start and Carlo Ancelotti’s side ended with 61% possession.

In other match played Wednesday FC Basel and FC Porto played 1-1 draw.
