Real Madrid CF are among Europe's best eight teams for a fourth consecutive campaign after the nine-time winners completed the job of emphatically eliminating FC Schalke 04 from the UEFA Champions League. 

A record 6-1 home defeat in the first leg meant Jens Keller's Schalke faced an all-but impossible task to reach this term's quarter-finals and their challenge got no easier in the return, Cristiano Ronaldo's 12th goal of this season's competition bringing the second leg to life in the 21st minute. Visiting full-back Tim Hoogland's deflected strike ten minutes later brought parity before second-half efforts from Ronaldo again – taking him within one goal of the record for a European Cup season – and Álvaro Morata wrapped up another Madrid victory.

Match in 5

  • Merengues reach fourth successive quarter-final
  • Ronaldo double takes his tournament season tally to 13
  • Schalke's Hoogland on target with first strike in four years
  • Morata opens UEFA Champions League account
  • Madrid's 9-2 aggregate win sets club record in competition

Reaction

We showed a good attitude, especially in the second half. All the teams in the quarter-finals are very strong – they are the best in Europe.

    Álvaro Morata nets his first UEFA Champions League goal after poking home the rebound after Cristiano Ronaldo was denied a hat-trick when his effort hit the bar and bounced out. Gareth Bale is the provider yet again after pouncing on a misplaced Schalke pass before continuing his run and squaring the ball to set up the goalscorer with a cutback from the byline.
