(Video) Real Madrid 3-4 Schalke: Champions League Highlights – La Liga Giants Through, Despite Humiliating Bernabeu Defeat.
Iker Casillas – 6
Conceding four goals in a game is never good for a goalkeeper, but if it wasn’t for the veteran his side would be out of the Champions League as he pulled of some great saves and put his neck on the line.
Alvaro Arbeloa – 5 (Nacho 83′)
Lackadaisical performance and being part of a Real Madrid back four which concedes four goals at home deserves a poor rating.
Pepe – 4
Completely embarrassed by Huntelaar on more than one occasion, most notably for Schalke’s fourth when the Dutchman strolled past him.
Raphael Varane – 5
A tough game for the young Frenchman playing with a defensive partner who had a shocker, but he must shoulder some of the blame.
Fabio Coentrao – 5 (Marcelo 58′)
It was easy to tell that Coentrao hasn’t had much football, he provided impetus going forward but as is a common story, forgot to defend.
