Drought of goals for Ronaldo

04 March 2015, 11:54 Ajayi Bolaji

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes Cristiano Ronaldo will be back to his best as soon as he gets back on the scoresheet. The Portuguese forward has not scored in his last three games, leaving a question mark over his form ahead of Wednesday's Champions League last-16 clash with Schalke. Ronaldo has been struggling with a knee issue, but Ancelotti is not concerned.

"Tomorrow is the next chance for him to get a goal," he said. It is the longest Ronaldo has gone without a goal this season, although he has scored 38 times in 35 appearances. He played the full 90 minutes against Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga on Saturday, as goals from Isco and Karim Benzema secured a 2-0 win. "Against Deportivo, I thought he was good from a physical point of view," Ancelotti added.

"He was able for the intensity of the game and he's making progress." Defender Pepe will return to the side for the first leg in Germany, after almost a month out with a rib injury. Fellow centre-back Sergio Ramos and midfielders Luka Modric and James Rodriguez remain unavailable. Real are aiming to defend the Champions League title they won last year, and Ancelotti added: "It is fantastic motivation for us. "We were here last year with a dream to win the Champions League and we are here this year with the same dream.By Ajayi Bolaji
