UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Draw: Real Madrid Will Face Schalke 04

That's right, Real Madrid will try to end the European spell in Germany.

Christof Koepsel

It's certainly not a bad draw for Real Madrid as Ancelotti's men will have to play against Schalke 04. The German team doesn't have Raúl anymore, but Jefferson Farfán, Julian Draxler and Huntelaar will be a threat to Real Madrid's defenders if they keep their bad form.

As always, it will be really hard to visit the German stadium, but if Real Madrid manage to get a close win or even a draw with some goals, the tie should be well secured for the second leg at the Bernabéu.

Here are the rest of the ties, featuring an explosive FC Barcelona-Manchester City.
