Raul made a triumphant return to Spain with Schalke last night.

The Real Madrid legend scored his 70th goal in European competition as Schalke recovered from a goal down to force a draw in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash with Valencia at the Mestalla.

The former Spain international tucked away the equaliser in the 63rd minute, and the outcome might have been even better for the German side if Junmin Hao had tucked away a chance in injury-time which was saved by Vicente Guaita.

The visitors were then reduced to 10 men at the death with the dismissal of Lukas Schmitz.
