Madrid face Schalke in the last 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday full of confidence. They leapfrogged both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid this weekend, after extending their unbeaten run to 26 games in all competitions. They longest unbeaten run in Real history is 34 games, set in the 1988-89 season.

Ancelotti said that the chance to win the tenth European crown is becoming an obsession: "We want to play the final of the Champions League. Obsession? ‘La Decima’ is a word you can hear again and again, it is a big motivation for everyone. We have worked for seven months to build a good solid base."

Real Madrid are still on course to win their first ever treble. Fans and pundits alike reckon that this season could be the year, with the improvement in form seen as a key indicator of how far the team will go.

Goalkeeper Iker Casillas has revealed that while all the Madrid players want to win the treble, they know it will be difficult with the quality of competition they have to face.

"I would love us to achieve the first Treble in history. Right now, we are exactly where we want to be, and that is in the fight for all three competitions. I would love the final headline of the season to be that we won the Treble. We know it is difficult because a lot of teams want to win it all."
