Real Madrid’s passage to the round of the Champions League is all but confirmed and we have free football betting tips.
They triumphed 6-1 in Germany in the first leg and Schalke need nothing short of a footballing miracle to progress. With El Clasico approaching at the weekend, Real very well may rest players in this one but their strength in depth means they will be a force nonetheless. They are unbeaten in thirty matches since losing in the Nou Camp in October.
Ancelotti has lost just one game in the Bernabau as Real Madrid manager and will want to keep the good form going. They play a Schalke side who have picked up again since their mauling in Gelsenkirchen, winning their last two Bundesliga games.
This game is very difficult to call with Madrid so far in front and their starting line-up unpredictable. One man who has impressed and could start if Bale or Ronaldo are rested is Jese. The winger has eight goals and has bags of potential at just 21. He is 6/5 to score and win with William Hill and if he starts, would be a good bet at that price.
With team news likely to be interesting from Real, as I already mentioned this is a hard match to predict. However, since they returned from their winter break Schalke have scored in all but one of their matches. With Madrid unlikely to be at full strength, they will fancy a goal here, like they got one in Germany. Coral are offering 6/4 on Real Madrid to win and both teams to score and with Madrid as short as 1/6 in some places, this should just be a bet on Schalke scoring a consolation, which I expect them to do.
