Preview

Real Madrid and Schalke face off at Satiago Bernabeu on this second leg match of the Champions League.

Real comes into this match following a demoralizing league loss against Bilbao. The will be having a comfortable lead though, after their 0-2 win in Germany. They are now the 2nd placed team on the league with 61 points, 1 behind the leader Barcelona.

Schalke on the other hand had a win last match, 3-1 at home against Hoffenheim was the result. They have lost their last away game though, against Dortmund 3-0. They are currently the 5th placed team on the Bundesliga with 38 points.

The head to head history favours Real Madrid having won the last 3 matches between and scoring 11 times on the process. 

Analysis of Real Madrid

Real Madrid has some important absences, James, Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos will not be playing due to injury.

Ancelloti’s team will probably adopt its usual 4-3-3 with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema up front.

Isco will be the likely substitute of Modric, joining Kroos and Illaramendi. The Spanish player technical skills are invaluable on the creation of the team’s attacking play.

Although it is expected that the home team will have the offensive initiative, it is also necessary to keep the defensive composure to reduce the chances of suffering home goals.


Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, Pepe, Arbeloa, R. Varane, Fábio Coentrão, S. Khedira, T. Kroos, Isco, K. Benzema, G. Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Coach: Rafael Benítez.

Analysis of Schalke 04

Meyer is the main attacking threat of the German team. Although very young, the mid fielder already demonstrates above average skills.

Up front will be Choupo-Moting. He is the best scorer of the team with 9 goals, which he scores with his great technicality and agility.

The right wing is Shalcke’s most dangerous one with the full back Barnetta giving great depth to their offensive play.

The German team will probably still have some defensive worries for this match but, considering their disadvantage on the aggregate, they will have to think much more offensively and consequently take more chances. 


Confirmed Lineup: T. Wellenreuther, J. Matip, B. Höwedes, M. Nastasić, C. Fuchs, R. Neustädter, M. Meyer, T. Barnetta, M. Höger, K. Huntelaar, E. Choupo-Moting.
Coach: R. Di Matteo.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be the appearance of goals. Taking into account the fact that the weaker team has to “run after the result” we think the the match will much more “open” and that the goal chances will naturally appear.
