Cristiano Ronaldo seems to sharpen his scoring boots and save his best Champions League performances especially for Schalke. So, Roberto Di Matteo’s men must be dreading their upcoming trip to the Bernabeu.

In three European outings against the Bundesliga club, Ronaldo has struck a fantastic five times and will be eager to improve on that terrific tally again.

The potent Portugal skipper is more often than not the instigator of Real Madrid’s attack, and has grabbed the opening goal in five of his last seven continental outings for Los Blancos.

Back brilliant Ronaldo to start as he means to go on again, as SkyBet are offering fabulous odds of 5/2 for the fearsome forward to draw first blood against the Royal Blues, and also the same price for the superstar to strike last.

Ronaldo has come under criticism for his all-round play this campaign, but is still unnervingly productive and efficient in front of net. Los Blancos’ leading man appears particularly fond of playing in Europe, where he has excelled with six strikes in seven Champions League games this season.

The Royal Blues certainly seem to be Ronaldo’s favoured opposition, as the 29-year-old has clocked up two brilliant braces in his past three games against the Gelsenkirchen club.

William Hill are offering punters excellent odds for Ronaldo to help dismantle the visitors again, as any good host would do, and silence his detractors.

As Premier League fans will no doubt remember, former Manchester United forward Ronaldo was at his most dangerous when provoked or criticised. So now Schalke could pay the price as the prolific Portuguese looks to prove a point.

To score two or more again, the Navigators skipper is a tempting 19/10, or an excellent 8/1 to surpass his previous feats and hit a hat-trick.

Luiz Adriano and Lionel Messi, the Champions League leading and second top scorers of this season so far, should watch out. Ronaldo will surely be on a mission to reclaim his crown.
