Galatasaray was the better side until the very last minute of the first half!
Just before the brake Schalke, scored on a breakaway thanks to very poor defending by Galatasaray team.
American player Jermaine Jones beat Muslera and Galatasaray defenders after getting a beautiful cross from Farfan.
In the beginning of the second half Fatih Terim pulled Wesley Sneijder!
In the second half both of the teams had chances but just could not cash it in,
So, with this 1-1 draw score , looks like Schalke is in the driving seat....
Even Fatih Terim after the match , recognized that...
He said, "Schalke has the advantage on us now.All we have to do is play very hard in the second leg match in Germany "
Meanwhile, Burak Yilmaz who scored Galatasaray goal, has seven goals in the Champion League ,
He is tied with Cristian Ronaldo...
Next three weeks will be very crucial time for Galatasaray and Fatih Terim ..
The trio on top ,Drogba,Sneijder and Burak Yilamz has to jello better and he has too fix the defense somehow!
That is the biggest hole for Galatasaray!
But, Galatasaray will not go down easy in Germany...
As Terim said it before, It is not over until it is over......
