Real Madrid vs Schalke live stream: Watch online UEFA Champions League soccer free [start time]

Real Madrid will play Schalke for the first time in a competitive match today in a mouthwatering Champions League game in this last-16 first leg tie.

Today's game will start at 7.45 p.m. GMT and can be watched online through live stream – free for subscribers – via the link provided below.

Real have invested a lot into their team over the past 12 months, and will be hoping for the most coveted prize in European club football by winning the Champions League this season.

Word record signing Gareth Bale has hit excellent form over the past few weeks. He has managed to start three consecutive games after Cristiano Ronaldo was suspended for three games after receiving a red card at the start of February. Bale has scored twice in those three games and looks like a big threat to every defense he has come up against.

Ronaldo will be back from suspension for today's game, giving Real a huge amount of attacking options, and that may mean Schalke will be up against it tonight.

Even though Real will be massive favorites in this tie, the Spanish team's record playing in Germany is horrendous; they have lost 18 of 25 games on German soil, drawing 6, and winning just once!

Schalke have also never conceded more than one goal in a game against Spanish opposition in the Champions League. However, looking at the results, they have lost their last three matches against Spanish teams at home 0-1.

Real will be hoping to maintain the form they have hit in their domestic league, where they have now pulled away to gain a three point lead at the top of the La Liga table.
