Madrid:

Bolstered by Ronaldo's return from injury, Real Madrid aims to rediscover its form when it faces Monaco in today's Champions' League first-leg quarterfinal at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Carlos Queiroz's side has badly missed the Brazilian ace, who has scored 27 goals in all competitions this season, since he pulled a thigh muscle during a league game on March 6. Queiroz, at a media conference yesterday, said that Monaco would be a difficult opponent to beat and described them as one of the best eight teams in Europe. The eventual winner will face English opposition in the semi-finals, either Arsenal or Chelsea.
