Real Madrid Big Favourite To Beat Schalke 04 At Home on Tuesday

One of Tuesday's two Champions League games will see the powerhouses from Real Madrid playing host to Schalke 04.

Schalke 04 will need something similar to a miracle to advance to the Quarter Finals of Champions League. Real Madrid won the first leg 2-0 on the road, meaning that Schalke 04 will need to win 2-0 on Tuesday in Real Madrid just to tie things up. That's a pretty tall order when you consider the fact that Real Madrid is one of the most talent-laden teams in the world.

Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid is the big favourite to win on Tuesday:

Real Madrid, 1.22
Draw, 6.00
Schalke 04, 12.00

The odds to qualify for the next round of Champions League?

Real Madrid, 1.00
Schalke 04, 41.00

According to the bookmakers, Real Madrid has a 81.97% chance of winning on Tuesday. Schalke 04, on the other hand, has just a 8.33% chance of winning.

The odds of Schalke 04 qualifying for the Quarter Finals of Champions league are astronomical. According to the bookmakers, they only have a 2.44% chance of advancing.


Real Madrid can cruise on Tuesday and still move on to the next round. Don't be surprised if Tuesday's game ends up fairly close as Real Madrid has quite a margin for error while Schalke 04 needs to turn in an emphatic victory.
