Real Madrid Ducks a Disaster
After their first-leg victory over Schalke 04, Real Madrid looked set to cruise into the Champions League's next round.
But sport is where a given isn't always a given.
Real got bit, 3-4, by the underdogs and were just a goal away from being KO'd.
The bookmakers will put legions of their offspring through school from this result.
Los Blancos did their usual bit of conceding early:
The pre-World Cup 2014 version of Iker Casillas would have definitely saved that.
Ronaldo did his usual bit:
That’s something that even the maestro Messi can’t do.
Klaas-Jan Hunteelar is an underrated but spicy Dutch striker who then stepped up for his club:
The ball just doesn’t stick with Mr Casillas nowadays.
Ronaldo again stamped his name in the score sheet and broke the Champions League goal record.
A header from Ronaldo is so easy on the eye.
The third Real goal was the best so far.
Karim Benzema literally took a stroll in the park.
Schalke matched every Real goal with an equally impressive goal, if not better.
This is what we call a just stand there and watch shot.
Schalke took the game’s excitement to a whole new level with a fourth goal:
Whoa! Was this a defenders' day off match or something?
And it seems like that dude's got a thing for the top woodwork.
What a match. In every sense of the word.
