Factfile on Real Madrid and Schalke 04 ahead of the Champions League last 16, second leg tie between the clubs on Tuesday:

Form: Real's below par performance in their away win over struggling Malaga on Saturday still saw them win 1-0 and extend their unbeaten run to 30. Schalke travel more in hope than expectation after the 6-1 hammering in the first leg but at least Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is in fine form having scored five goals in his last two Bundesliga appearances -- including a double in Friday's 2-1 win over Augsburg that saw them move up to third in the table -- and will want to make a point against a team with whom he never produced his best.
