Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng suffered a major dissappointment in the UEFA Champions League after his club Schalke were thrashed 6-1 by Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old started the game for the German club but failed to impress in his deep-lying midfield role against the maruadingÂ Spanish giants.
Karim Benzema got the rout on the way with a 13th minute finish after being fed by CristianoÂ Ronaldo.
Gareth Bale doubled the lead eight minutes later afterwhichÂ Ronadlo inevitably got in the scoresheetÂ to make it 3-0 at the start of the second half.
BenzemaÂ grabbed his brace in the 57th minute after which BoatengÂ made way for Leon GorerzkaÂ having labouredÂ in a holding midfield role.
The change did little to affect the game as Bale grabbed his brace in the 69th minute.
CristianoÂ Ronaldo also got his second on the night after rounding the Schalke goalkeeper to tap in a minute to the end of regulation time.
There was however enough time for a wonder strike from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to give the home fans something to really cheer about.
Real Madrid are all but through to the quarter finals of this season's Champions League with the resounding result as they pursue that elusive 10th triumph in Europe.
