Schalke beating Real Madrid
After a 2-0 win for Cristiano Ronaldo and company in Germany, the tie was over. Why wouldn’t it be? This was Real Madrid with two away goals against a poor Schalke side.
The Germans though decided to have a real go at it and went all out in the second leg at the Bernabeu, almost pulling off the comeback of the century. Schalke eventually won at Madrid 4-3, going out with an agonizing 5-4 aggregate score. The win shook up the foundations of Madrid whose fans booed their own players at the full-time whistle.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side was already looking shaky in La Liga and with this defeat, never quite looked the same especially in the Champions League as they just about scraped through Atletico 1-0 in the quarterfinals before eventually bowing out 3-2 to Juventus.
