Real Madrid hopes to extend dominance in Champions League

Real Madrid is in pole position for winning the domestic championship, while they also hope to defend their title in the most important European competition. They shouldn’t have any problem in advancing to the next stage as they take on a German site that has been blowing hot and cold recently. What the visitors are hoping is a comfortable victory, so that by the time they returned to Madrid for the second leg, they will only have to fulfill a formality.real

They had a comfortable lead ahead of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, but the city rivals defeated them by four goals to none and that all change. Real Madrid is now between a rock and a hard place, with any mistake leading to devastating consequences and there is no room for error. The first step is to crush Schalke 04 in Germany without key players suffering injuries, because they need to be able to field the best starting 11 in all upcoming games.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale and Rodriguez have scored a total of 50 goals so far, with the Portuguese striker being the author of 28. All of them are expected to play away from home, so Schalke will have no choice but to defend with all lines and hope that Huntelaar will score on the counterattack. It is a fool’s hope, but it is the only one they’ve got and the fans were probably watch the game at the edge of their seats for only the first half.

Once Real Madrid gets ahead, they will be no stopping to them and the more chances the home side stakes, the worst the outcome. Don’t be surprised if the visitors will steamroll past their opponents and score 3 goals or more, without conceding any. There is a huge difference between the two teams and even if Real Madrid doesn’t play at full potential, it should easily cover the -1.5 goals spread. Betting on such an outcome will result in even odds, something that is more than tempting for savvy punters.
