Real Madrid and Schalke 04 clash in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League's Round of 16, just like they did last year. That time, Real Madrid earned a convincing 1-6 win at the Veltins Arena and a comfortable 3-0 at the Bernabéu, but Schalke's new coach Roberto Di Matteo will not make things that easy for Los Blancos considering his defensive-minded style.
