REAL MADRID v SCHALKE 04 BETTING PREVIEW
Real Madrid have played poor in their last two outings as they only recorded a draw with Villarreal and lose at Athletic Bilbao allowing bitter rivals Barcelona to return to the top of La Liga. Victory over Schalke would be Real's 11th successive win in the competition, following a 2-0 triumph in the first-leg of the last-16 tie in Gelsenkirchen last month, and this would represent a new Champions League record.
Ancelotti may be tempted to name the same XI that started against Athletic over the weekend. Anyway, it has been confirmed that Luka Modric will play some part in the game, making his return from four months out injured but captain Sergio Ramos and James Rodriguez will miss out once more. Asier Illarramendi and Lucas Silva are battling for a place alongside Isco and Toni Kroos
Schalke meanwhile, come into the game having suffered the ignominy of losing their derby to Borussia Dortmund 3-0 although they got back to winning ways at the weekend against Hoffenheim, ending a 4-game winless run. They have lost on all three of their previous visits to Madrid - twice against Atletico and at the Bernabeu
Kevin-Prince Boateng's yellow card during the 1st leg means he is unavailable due to suspension. Joel Matip, Sead Kolasinac, Leon Goretzka, Fabian Giefer and Jan Kirchhoff are all classed as doubts. Julian Draxler, Ralf Fahrmann, Jefferson Farfan and Chinedu Obasi are all sidelined.
Real are unbeaten at the Bernabeu in Europe since April 2011 and have kept a clean sheet in their last 5 matches in the Champions League. At the same stage of last year's competition the Galacticos beat their German opponents 6-1 away before closing out a 9-2 aggregate scoreline.
