Madrid:

Bolstered by Ronaldo's return from injury, Real Madrid aim to rediscover their form when they face AS Monaco in Wednesday's UEFA Champions' League quarter-final, first-leg 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 press conference on Tuesday (March 23rd), 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 definitely face English opposition in the semi-finals, either Arsenal or Chelsea who will battle it out in all-London quarter-final.
