Ramos replaces Schuster at Real
Juande Ramos has replaced Bernd Schuster at Real Madrid with Real lying fifth in La Liga and nine points behind league leaders Barcelona.
Ramos started the season with Tottenham Hotspurs where he was replaced by Harry Redknapp after a string of poor results that left Spurs bottom of the ladder.
On the other hand Schuster replaced current England coach Fabio Capello last season and managed to win the title in his first season.
But things have not been as smooth this season for Real after a spate of injuries to key players including Arjen Robben, Mahamadou Diarra, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Gabriel Heinze, Pepe, Wesley Sneijder, Miguel Torres and Ruben de la Red .
Schuster's next league match would have been against arch-rivals Barcelona but that will now be Ramos' problem.
Below is the full list of results for the thirteen UEFA Champions League matches Real played under the guidance of Schuster:

Please note that the kick-off times are for the GMT timezone.
So in the thirteen matches, Real won just 6, lost 5 and drew 2 and both draws were away from home.
The two losses at home were to Italian teams Roma and Juventus.
Its interesting to see that Real failed to score in just two matches but worringly only managed clean sheets against two teams BATE Borisov and Olympiacos.
Ramos will take over in the match against Zenit St Petersburg and he has signed a contract to the end of the current
season. He will have some work to do.
