Traditionally German territory has been a "nightmare" for Real Madrid. However, tonight that "bad spell" was turned into a tale as the Spanish Team showed themselves to be far more superior on all levels. The locally ( Spain ) named term the "B.B.C" ( Bale, Benzema & Cristiano Ronaldo ) had their night with two goals each. They combined in differing fashion between themselves & with Di Maria, Modric, Ramos ...etc , to rip the German defence apart.
Schalke 04 was dangerous the first 10 minutes as they came out revved up but their enthusiasm was washed with the first Real Madrid goal in the 13th min by Karim Benzema. Immediately after this Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas made a miracle save to stop Drexler equalizing that further put out the German fire - the Iker Casillas save was spectacular.
From here until the end of the match Real Madrid was the owner of the encounter & could have scored more goal had the Schalke 04 keeper Fhrmann not intervened in a number of occasions. The goals rained down on the Germans who continued on with honourable pride & they managed a consolation goal in the 91st min when Huntelaar connected onto a ball to burst the leather passed Real Madrid goalie Iker Casillas. The goal of the night went to the Germans.
Impressive exhibition from Real Madrid & its forward line.
