Third game winless Real Madrid, two consecutive defeats, conceding four goals at the Santiago Bernabeu as more than a decade did, errors in all lines of play and coaching, a puff that neither the hymn to all volume has managed to hide … One would think that Real Madrid has hit a historic bump against Schalke 04 but not, has passed the qualifying despite all this.
More or less all had clear that the thing into the quarter was made after the first leg 0-2, in which the differences between the German team and the Spanish team were evident. But that was two weeks ago, when the team was not unplugged as now. In the end, Real has ended commending the clock, giving the feeling that if the party lasts a couple of minutes, the tie had fallen on the German side.
On three occasions, Schalke came within a goal of eliminating Real (first one to match the tie). Cristiano head struck twice that situation, Benzema to put forward to the whites, but a goal from debutant Sane and other Huntelaar spread panic among the Madrid parish. Fortunately, time ran out for Di Matteo and Madrid became quarters. And, thankfully, there is much for that series and this team will be different then.
The other team that accompanies today at Real Madrid and qualified for the quarterfinals is the Oporto , which has had a much gentler than Ancelotti night. The Portuguese ruled in their tie against Basel after the score 1-1 in the first leg played harvested in Swiss lands, and today have certified his pass play a pretty good game and beating people at Swiss team 4-0.
Curiously, noting that the team’s four goals were scored from outside the area. Free throw framework Yacine Brahimi , 13 minutes into the game for railroaded the tie. Free throw also marked Casemiro , the goal of 3-0 and in the second half, a few minutes after Hector Herrera made it 2-0. And closed the scoring before the final whistle Cameroon striker Vincent Aboubakar.
They did not have all the Porto at the start of this round, the absence of which is their leading scorer in this competition, the Colombian striker Jackson Martinez. However, Lopetegui have scratched a high level and get back to the quarterfinals of the Champions League six years after the last time, and making it clear that they will not be far from the minnows of the next draw.
