After Felix Platte's would-be equalizer crashed off the woodwork in the 74th minute for Schalke 04, Marcelo doubled Real Madrid's lead with a golazo in the 80th minute. 

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored Real Madrid's opening goal, split two defenders and cut toward the box. He dumped the ball off to Marcelo on the outside of the box, who struck the ball with his right foot, blistering a shot to the top right corner of the net past the keeper. 

Chicharito's reaction says it all. 

The two teams will meet again on March 10 in the second leg of their Champions League competition.
