Already in Rabat and waiting for the semifinals of the FIFA Club World Cup, Los Blancos got to know who their next rivals in the UEFA Champions League will be. Schalke 04 will be the next obstacle on the Road to La Undécima, so just like last season we will be facing the last team where Raúl played in Europe in the Round of 16. It could have definitely been worse as we avoided Juventus, Manchester City and PSG, but playing in Germany used to be quite hard for Real Madrid.

For sure, Carlo Ancelotti will express the team's feelings about the draw this afternoon in the press conference prior to the game against Cruz Azul. Anyhow, as the saying goes: you must beat everyone in order to become the Champion.
