All goals and highlights from Real Madrid's 2-0 win against Schalke

Real Madrid took care of business against Schalke 04 quite comfortably. While it wasn't a brilliant match by Los Blancos, Schalke's lack of ambition made it easy, given that both Pepe and Varane completed a dominating defensive performance. Isco and Ronaldo played well to give Real Madrid the win even when Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale weren't at their best, but Carvajal and Marcelo dominated the flanks as well.

Lucas Silva started his first game for Real Madrid and showed his composure. It seems that he's not the type of player to stand-out and dominate, but he provided a notable defensive effort and some secure passing in Real Madrid's midfield.

All things considered, Real Madrid will be able to rotate on the second leg, given that it will take a miracle for Schalke to go through. Expect Jesé Rodríguez, Álvaro Arbeloa and Nacho Fernández to get some minutes at the Santiago Bernabéu.
