Line-ups: Schalke-Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to the Real Madrid starting XI for their game with Schalke this evening.

Los Blancos travel to Gelsenkirchen for their Champions League Last 16 first leg, and they do so with the Portugal international, who returns from his three-match ban.

Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema will partner the former Manchester United forward, with Luka Modric also being recalled after a ban.

Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso complete the three-man midfield, as Sergio Ramos comes in for Raphael Varane at centre-back.

Iker Casillas, as usual, plays in goal in Europe.

Jens Keller meanwhile, goes with former Real Madrid man Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to lead the line.

Schalke: Fährmann, Höwedes, Santana, Matip, Kolasinac, Meyer, Boateng, Draxler, Neustädter, Farfán y Huntelaar.

Real Madrid: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Xabi Alonso, Modric, Di María, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema
