Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng believes Schalke 04 have a chance against Real Madrid in the Uefa Champions League.
Both sides have been drawn together at the knockout stage of the elite inter-club competition of Europe, and Boateng is sure his side can pull a surprise though the Spanish giants remain favourites.
“They're going to be really nice, emotional games. Real Madrid are one of the best teams in the world,” Boateng told Bundesliga.com. “Even though it’s going to be very difficult, if we all pull together and in the same direction, then we always have a chance over two games.”
Real Madrid were knocked out of last season's Champions League by Schalke's rival Borrusia Dortmund and they will be hoping to shrug off the German opposition this time round.
