UEFA Champions League results: Real Madrid outclass Schalke in Germany, Galatasaray hold Chelsea

Real Madrid showed Schalke they are playing in different leagues, while Roberto Mancini held Jose Mourinho in Istanbul.

Life never meant to be easy for Jens Keller and his players when Schalke had been drawn against Real Madrid. But they definitely hoped to be able to show teeth at home, in Gelsenkirchen. However, Los Blancos tore them apart in the first leg with incredible ease. Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, who returned from a three-match suspension in domestic championship, all netted braces to sink the hosts. Former Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar managed to score a stunning consolation goal in added time but overall Schalke were outclassed by a superior side.

Aurelien Chedjou netted a second half equalizer to deny an early Fernando Torres’ opener to give Galatasaray some hope for making it to the last eight. However, they will now need to score at Stamford Brifdge.
