Real Madrid 3-4 Schalke 04: Los Blancos nearly sent crashing out

first_img But despite his shoddy performance, it was Casillas who saved Real Madrid from being eliminated, making two good saves as Schalke tried to grab a late fifth, which would have taken them to 5-5 on aggregate and through on away goals.  CET Madrid now just have one more match, at home against Levante, to prepare for the Clasico. Ancelotti will not be sleeping comfortably. Huntelaar did the damage, lashing past the goalkeeper, who for the first time, had no chance at stopping the strike.  With Alvaro Arbeloa and Gareth Bale notably badly, there was always the chance the Di Matteo’s men would score again. And they did. Roberto Di Matteo’s Schalke team came to the Santiago Bernabeu full of zest, and took the lead on two occasions, with Ronaldo pegging the Germans back both times. Former Real Madrid forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar notched twice, but it was youngster Max Meyer who ran the show.  It was not to be, but despite the final whistle giving Real Madrid sweet relief, their players still looked shell-shocked.  Christian Fuchs opened the scoring for the Germans, with his strike at Casillas’ hands only turned into the net by the stopper. Rik Sharma Cristiano Ronaldo helped drag a sloppy Real Madrid side up by their bootstraps as they scraped their way into the Champions League quarter-finals.  10/03/2015 Upd. at 23:12 Karim Benzema looked to have taken the wind out of Schalke’s sails with a well-taken strike after the interval, but Leroy Sane’s curler gave the Germans a chance. Madrid were not functioning, with Iker Casillas particularly bad, and at fault at least in part, for three of the Schalke goals. Ronaldo, particularly, looked distinctly unimpressed with the whistles that were screaming around the Bernabeu.  But Ronaldo pulled Real Madrid level when he headed home Toni Kroos’s corner, and then nodded in on the stroke of half-time after Huntelaar had followed up a shot spilled by Casillas. last_img read more

first_img Sport EN CET He added “the referees sometimes give to you and sometimes take away, but you have to be ready for anything.

Goretzka’s arrival could see Thiago leave Bayern Munich

first_imgLeon Goretzka’s arrival could put Thiago Alcantara’s future at the club in danger, according to Kicker. The German magazine report that the signing of the Schalke midfielder on a free transfer (he will join in the summer) could force the former Barcelona man and Arturo Vidal out. Since then, he has missed 12 games in total and has missed 17 of 32 games in total this season due to fitness problems. The 15 games he did play were nearly all as a starter and he scored three goals.  IN SPORT.ES The arrival of Goretzka, though, could mean changes at Bayern due to an overbooking in midfield. Along with Niklas Dorsch and Fabian Benko, he represents a bet for the future and the coaching staff may look to make cutbacks elsewhere. Thiago is only thinking about getting fit as soon as possible and hopefully making Spain’s squad for the World Cup. If he does leave, though, it could be for the Premier League, with Chelsea and Manchester United both linked in the past. Goretzka pone en peligro la continuidad de Thiago en el Bayerncenter_img Thiago has not played since Nov. 22 when he picked up a muscle injury in the Champions League game against Anderlecht.  08/02/2018 Upd. at 20:06 Kicker believe that Thiago and Vidal are two players that could be in danger given James Rodriguez’s form in recent months, while Javier Martínez, Sebastian Rudy and Corentin Tolisso are all likely to stay.

Powered by Firework It was always going to be a long summer for Chelsea F.C. but it has been made one step easier by the tuesday afternoon announcement that Derby County has allowed their manager Frank Lampard to speak to Chelsea over the vacant manager position.Advertisement A statement from Derby confirmed they had granted permission for Chelsea to speak to Lampard, adding: “With pre-season fast approaching for both clubs, it is hoped this will allow Chelsea to swiftly conclude their discussions. The club will make no further comment until it is appropriate to do so.”Advertisement A transfer ban and the departure of Sarri has made things immensely difficult for the London club to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool and understandably it is believed that Lampard will be given ample time before he is assessed at Chelsea. This is mainly because of the bond Lampard shares with the club and its fans.Jody Morris will return to Chelsea as Lampard’s assistant, with fitness coach Chris Jones also heading back, and academy coach Joe Edwards set for a promotion to the first-team coaching set-up.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more
