Cristiano Ronaldo leads Real to UCL win

Cristiano Ronaldo’s first goal in four games has fired Real Madrid to a 2-0 win away to German side Schalke in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

The result puts the Spanish side well ahead, while Danilo’s late penalty means FC Porto are primed to progress against FC Basel after a 1-1 draw in Switzerland.

While Ronaldo’s 26th-minute goal broke a mini-drought, teammate Marcelo stole the headlines with the goal of match-day two.

The Brazilian fullback isn’t afraid to attack and proved why, smashing into the top corner off his wrong foot.

 Schalke’s task of turning around the two-goal deficit in Madrid is now looking near impossible after striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was substituted with an injury.
