Real Madrid are split over the prospect of facing Raul's Schalke in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Real are into the hat after last night' victory over Lyon.

Mesut Ozil, the Real midfielder, declared: "I'd like to face Schalke 04 because I played there and because there is the legendary Raul.

"I'm in a good moment, I feel good and I'm happy for the qualification."

But Real GM Jorge Valdano warned: "We would not want Raul to visit us, the game would have too much emotion.

"We'd take Barcelona, though it would be better for Spanish football if that game came later."
