A headed goal from Ronaldo and a right-footed(!) strike from Marcelo saw Real Madrid beat Schalke 04 to give them the advantage for the second leg.
In the other match, Basel and Porto drew 1-1. Gonzalez gave FC Porto the lead in the eleventh minute. However, a late and controversial penalty awarded by referee Mark Clattenburg gave Danilo the opportunity to earn the visitors a draw and a possibly important away goal.
