Spanish newspaper Marca thinks that Schalke will have a pretty tough time of things against Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid when the sides meet in the Champions League last 16 round on Wednesday.

In fact, they liken the task facing the German team to being like conquering an ogre—and they've got the Photoshop to prove it:

You can see their point—Ronaldo is in a rich vein of form that only a suspension in La Liga has put on hold. Even without the Portuguese forward, though, Real have risen to the top of the table going into the match, so the odds are stacked against Schalke.

Teamwork—and, on the evidence of this picture, some rope—will be required if they are to come away victorious.
