Schalke vs Real Madrid: Tips and prediction – 18.02.2015

By on February 18, 2015
Schalke 04 and Real Madrid will be face to face in the most exciting game of the day in Uefa Champions League. the match is scheduled this evening from 19:45 and it is the first leg of the last 16 round.
The german side is coming after a bad result in Bundesliga, losing 0-1 against Frankfurt away. They still have a good chance for a UCL spot in Germany, but the fight is very tight this campaign. Schalke will probably field a 3-5-2 formation, but their star, Julian Draxler, is injured. Fahrmann, Farfan, Kolasinac, Goretzka and Obasi are also injured and they won’t play against Real Madrid.
The guests are coming here without five important players. To be more precise, Rodriguez, Coentrao, Ramos, Modric and Khedira are all injured. Ronaldo is out of form, but Real Madrid still have the first chance by far. The spanish side is leading in Primera Division, but they suffered a very bad defeat 11 days ago, 0-4 against Atletico Madrid away.
Schalke vs Real Madrid probable lineups:
Schalke (3-5-2): Wellenreuther – Howedes, Matip, Nastasic – Uchida, Barnetta, Kirchhoff, Hoger, Fuchs – Huntelaar, Moting.
Real Madrid (4-3-3): Casillas – Carvajal, Varante, Nacho, Marcelo – Illarramendi, Kroos, Isco – Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo.
