‘Madrid will have to be careful’

Emilio Butragueno has reflected that Real Madrid could have had a harder Champions League draw, but that they must still take care with Schalke.

The Bundesliga outfit have today been confirmed as Madrid’s Last 16 opponents, after the draw was held.

“There were stronger teams in the draw but every time we've played against German opposition, we have struggled,” club director Butragueno has reacted to the news.

“We will have to be alert to every detail of this tie.

“One bad night in Europe will put you out of the competition so we will need to be careful.”
