Respect to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for not mailing it in as his Schalke team had already conceded six (!) away goals to Real Madrid. But even more respect to him for scoring the goal of the night.
Moments after Cristiano Ronaldo had scored Madrid's sixth goal, the Dutch international smashed a 25-yard volley that curled inside the near post and left Iker Casillas hopeless to stop it.

Now Schalke six away goals in the return leg will give Schalke a win in Madrid, instead of extra time (provided, of course, they hold Madrid scoreless). No big deal.
