Real Madrid to win 2 – 0
It would be impossible to think Real Madrid won´t move on to the next round after beating Schalke 2-0 on home ground. This match could produce less goals as one would expect from Real, but their current shape is the worst in the season with Ronaldo and Bale not scoring, and James Rodrigues and Ramos on the injury bench. Here is how you should lay out your bets…
Real still has more gun power than Schalke and we don´t expect Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema to all have rusted feet on the most important match of the season so far. Bet for Real Madrid to win for an easy purse win but pay close attention to favorable under scores, as the striking rate in Real is falling since recent games. Besides, who can beat Ronaldo´s ball control…
Schalke 04 on the other hand is expected to pull itself into its own area and wait for counter strikes or rival defense mistakes to make their move. It would not be surprising to see no goals in the first half of the match, but any team that allows itself to be cornered will have a hard time resisting a constant firing from Real Madrid.

Why not a draw between Real and Schalke?
A draw might seem compelling after balancing Real´s recent poor performance, but that behavior could very well be attributed to the stress and focus on the Champions game, especially in their most recent game loss against Athletic Bilbao that cost Real Madrid the lead on La Liga. Most of Real´s best did not start on that match, so judging the team´s performance by that game is a rookie bettor´s mistake.
Real has something else to win here besides moving on to quarter finals, its pride. If they win this match instead of a draw they will gain the record for more consecutive wins in the Champions League with 11 won games in a row. Knowing Ronaldo´s vane and Bale´s hunger for protagonism those two will be lions today.
Real will win, mark my word.
