Everyone keeps on forgetting that RMA nearly killed Juve over two legs if not for Juve's late equaliser.
Lol. People are saying how they wouldn't get this space vs top teams like Bayern, Barca etc. but why would you put Chelsea in that sentance!!?? It's Barca, Bayern, Atletico, Dortmund and City.. Chelsea aren't as good as those teams!!
For those saying Madrid wud not get the same space against Bayern,barca,n Chelsea!!U jux hating on Madrid
I still think Madrid wud find a way of dispatching them to! One step @ time
The perfect dress rehearsal for the match with Atletico.
Real Madrid created that freedom , it wasnt spoonfed to them. Lets not forget how barca struggled with sociedad , bayern to arsenal in first mins & chelsea were smacked by basel. No team is invincible but they certainly deserve credit.
Kudos to Madrid but Schalke were very poor. I don't think they will have that freedom against Munich, Barcelona, Chelsea. Super performance from Bale as well
The entire front line deserves 10.0
This comment has been deleted.
@stront ronaldo had 1 assist, the other one was deflected
the first one was meant to bale, and got deflected to benz, therefore 1
The BBC(Bale, Benzema, Cristiano) is working wonders
Truly indelible night.
German hoodoo is blown away , well done Vikingos. Vamos Real ♥
ronaldo had 2 assists...
What i can say is, the second leg which will be played in the Bernabeu is just before Real Madrid plays against Barcelona in the league. Therefore having this excellent result its an oppurtinity for Ancelotti to rest key players and use fringe ones in that particular game. For example you can field a starting XI that looks something like Casillas,Coentrao,Nacho,Varane,Arbeloa,Illara,Casemiro,Di Maria, Morata,Isco,Jese and then for the game vs Barcelona you can start with :Lopez,Marcelo,Pepe,Ramos,Carvajal,Alonso,Modric,Di Maria, Ronaldo,Benzema,Bale and have like almost full squad rested! anyway, lets not get carried away, against Atletico there is one of the toughest games of the season so far, they are waiting for us....
Now i understand why BVB got rid off Santana.
Bigmountie no goal is meaningless maybe Schalke will win 4-0 the next game you never know.
Bale - 4 shots = 2 goals
Benzema - 5 shots = 2 goals
Ronaldo - 10 shots = 2 goals
Just shoot till you score for Cristiano clearly
Didn't pay much attention to which foot he's using but in most situations you can opt for the stronger foot I think. Especially when going 1 on 1. But yes, this explains a lot.
@RGM That's bull. So you're saying a player could shoot at goal all match without scoring, but as long as he 'tests the keeper', he should get a high rating? It's only Ronaldo and Messi that get a higher rating for that, every other players rating stays the same or gets lower when all they do is shoot and not score.
cr7 the best in the world because he scores two meaningless goals against shitka???? lmao
Like i said walk in the park for real madrid
cr7 as usual popping up with two meaningless goals lol nothing new there than
You get a positive rating for testing the keeper. Some of you noobs don't realise these players have to put it past the keeper and that the keeper is allowed to make saves.
Hooooly Shit Huntelaar !
Huntelar WHAT A GOAL
Ronaldo, rhe best in the world
if you play football you'll realize that when you are using your weaker foot you just swing hard...very difficult to curl with the weaker foot. and Ronaldo has been shooting with the left foot today.
@Exti that's maybe because Ronaldo has been shooting with his left foot (weaker, less controlled)
@skrong not you are talking pure shite and you know it. schalke are without doubt the worst team in this and i can't wait for bayern to roll over real just like they did the mighty barca. enjoy your smoke and mirrors against schalke cause bayern are waiting beeatch
As I said before, Ronaldo is just using power for his shots. Which makes it harder to aim for corners and most of the shots end up saved by goalkeeper. Mean while Bale is making easy curled shots and finishing way more efficient than Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is shooting straight at the keeper! and still the rating is increasing..
How is CR7 missing some of these chances? He could honestly have 4-5 goals already.
Again, this site over-rates Ronaldo (like Messi), without fail. 2 goals and an assist from both Bale and Benzema, and Ronaldo still has a higher rating.
@bigmountie Schalke are not the worst team in the CL dumbass. Just cause they're getting dominated by Real doesn't mean they're the worst. Zenit, Leverkusen, Olympiakos, and United are all arguably worse. lol
Bale should have a higher rating than Ronaldo...
Your rating system is flawed anyway
Why would Ronaldo ever return to ManU(re)? LOL
Moyes is so scared to attack, it will ruin Ronaldo's career!
Bale is not to be compared with the likes of Neymar and Hazard and what not, he's past being a youngster. He's slowly creeping into the group of Ribery, Ibra, Suarez, in terms of production.
Look at how Bale hit the ball now. While Ronaldo is just smashing it straight at goalkeeper.
This is absolutely incredible. Bale, Benz and Ronaldo are amazing.
@Skrong calm down this is the worst team in the champions league and if they meet bayern's defence they will get found out big time
what are schalke doing in the champions league? they are terrible and making real seem far better than they actually are.
Goalkeeper saved it to the post, that's why it's not added to Ronaldo.
Ronaldo hit the post in the first half. You missed that, whoschoed. just sayin.
@Skrong, i see what you mean but this time last year Fabregas scored a goal against Madrid with an assist of Messi it came off Arbeloa's foot and Whoscored counted it.
BEST ATTACKING FORCE IN FOOTBALL. IT'S SO EASY FOR THEM.
Now the goal is just damage control for Schalke. They need to avoid embarrassment.
oh my god real are devastating.
Some respect for Di Maria , he has been brilliant as well.
Does anyone else think Draxler isnt as good as media claims in england?
This is where madrid shouldnt get complacent , last time they were complacent bvb took advantage
Benzema imo could have scored 3rd but nevamind , maybe in 2nd half
Casillas top save kinda changed the course of a match , boosted our morales and bale smacked in amazing goal.
Need to stay focussed in 2nd half , no complacency.
Btw such a legendary save by Iker
It doesn't say assist for Ronaldo because the ball in ricocheted off of Santana.
@HalaMadrid12 It's not hard to hit a curled shot with the inside of foot, if you have ever played football yourself, you should know. Look how Bale is hitting in this kind of situations.
Benzema.... how do you miss those...
@Exti sorry but FIFA and real life are different.
Best tranfer of Dortmund getting rid of Santana.
Ronaldo's hit the post and has an assist! Why doesn't it say that!!!
Ronaldo should just go for a finesse shot, instead of hitting the goalkeeper over and over again...
Felipe Santana with 2 errors in 20 minutes
santana and kolasinac OUT
Benzema is putting in work!!!
What a save from Casillas
Thats an assist for Ronaldo, Whoscored.
GOAAAAAAAL CBB at it again.
Our starting XI: Casillas, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Marcelo, Xabi Alonso, Carvajal, Modric, Di María #RMLive
i hate real madrid who is with me ?
Schalke's Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored eight goals in 20 La Liga games for Madrid in 2009. [the independent]
Huntelaar & Draxler , both are gonna play.
Kyriakos Papadopoulos was involved in a scuffle during FC Schalke training with KPB
Adam Szalai and Huntelaar are the former Real Madrid players in Schalke's current squad.
As i heard he is going to play tonight against his former club ;-)
Is he on the bench?he played in Schalke previous match against mainz
Where is huntelaar?
@commandozap - Not Papastathopoulos (which previously played for Bremen). I am talking about the young Papadopoulos, which was a huge youngster a season ago. He is 22, and was being monitored by AC Milan and Arsenal.
and thanks for your response.
@DelJUve - he is sold to bvb
I dont think he will. Carvajal only
Arbeloa should not start Farfan will tear him apart.
Real madrid to keep clean sheet.
Does anyone what happened to Papadopoulos? I know he was injured at once, last season. But I haven't heard of him for long. Plus, he is not even mentioned in the preview.
i think Carvajal will start ahead of Arbeloa , not to forget he was voted best RB in Bundesliga. He knows the stuff and has the ability to have smooth faring than Arbeloa given his experience on german soil
Somebody needs to be Roberto Carlos tonight.
To conclude i hope el santo has a great game.
Hasta el final Madridista | Hala Madrid
Luka is back , trained yesterday & will play ahead of illara.
That being said no matter how schalke are fairing , underestimating them will be a certain disaster. We have been wasting quite a chances lately so i hope we wont reiterate.
As well bale will be starting ahead of jese as his moment of brilliance can turn the game any moment even if fails to make impact all the minutes he plays. Jese and Isco as impact players will be crucial.
Ronaldo is back , he will be eager to make statement but i hope he wont squander unsure chances & instead pass to one in favourable position as carlo insists to players in final third.
Even if cr7 by chance has a bad game given his playing block , i doubt he will , he will surely break the ice & will prove to be impetus to other forwards to milk the open spaces and be assertive to any oppurtinity. Cr7 is standalone motivation there even when on hold. Defense have to be alert all 90 mins even to slightest threat , drax kpb farfan & hunt are quality.
Wont be easy for Real.
Schalke got back in style in the last 5 games and are hungry to win this one 2:1.
i'm slightly confident because chelsea won 3-0 there
@commandozap it is not simple match for Real,it would be intresting game in first leg
i'm not sure of cleansheet but lately we have been boasting one of the best defensive records in europe
@soul_snatcher - there isnt any fear psychosis , we can win this game
I hope that Real Madrid doesn't lose yet again to a German team. 1 Win in 25 Games against the Germans isn't normal. We have to find the balance in attack and defense in order to get past Schalke04.
Expected Starting Eleven! #RealMadrid
Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo, Coentrao, Alonso, Modric, Di Maria, Gareth Bale, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo!
Schalke 04 1 - 2 Real Madrid
Schalke 3-1 Real Madrid
Isco can make difference in such game so i will back him to start or atleast enter in 60 mins.
Carvajal - Ramos- Pepe - Marcelo
Xabi- Luka- Di Maria
Bale - Isco/Benzema - CR7
hala madrid and schalke.
is draxler back? marca reporting it
If we play our natural game and take our chances we can take on anyone
honestly i dont get the fear psychosis , even chelsea ripped schalke apart at veltis arena , and germans arent anywhere to be feared nowadays. Yes Bayern are a good competitor for the CL but its not like they are unbeatable.
Schalke lost 6-0 in total against Chelsea. Now I know they are in good form at the moment but so are we in quite better form. hope we break the ridiculous german hodoo. And yeah luka will be starting
I have doubts about Modric because he was missing from his training session to pay respects to his coach funeral but Marca reports he is back. So possibility is he will start the game.
I think Bale is favourite to start after that stunner against elche .
hope casillas improves his clean sheet record
2-0 for madrid
Hala Madrid :P
zenit 1-0 dortmund
olympiacos 1 man utd 3
Schalke are practising aerial attacks according to reports , we better be resiliant and prepared.
Schalke 5-0 Mighty madrid.
Schalke isnt on bad form so i expect a tough game
Jekaman - take your pills
As a die hard madrid fan since franco era I must say we should bench penaldo. Without him our teams looks like bayern.
Schalke are playing good so we shouldnt underestimate them ! Time for war
