Real Madrid managed to get through to their fifth successive Uefa Champions League quarter-final despite conceding four goals at home in the hands of Schalke 04 on Tuesday.

The holders advanced from the second round on account of their 2-0 away win at the German Bundesliga side as an impressive display of hearts saw visitors Schalke force a 4-3 victory at the Santiago Bernebeu, but the day still went to the hosts 5-4 on aggregate.

Schalke twice led in Madrid through Christian Fuchs and ex-Real man Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, but Cristiano Ronaldo twice pulled back for the Los Merengues with a header.

Karim Benzema forced issues with a third goal for Carlo Ancelotti’s side after the break before Leroy Sane and Huntelaar scored to help the Royal Blues lose out with pride and end Real’s 21-match unbeaten home run in the Champions League.

Fifa Ballon d’Or holder Ronaldo became the Champions League’s record scorer with 76 goals from his two headed goals, one ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Mess, who returns in a last-16 game next week at home to Manchester City.
