Do or Die Match for Galatasaray!

Advantage  on Schalke side but we have to remember Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim's  words!

"We are not done until we say  the last word!"

With that spirit, I am sure Terim should be big factor in the lockers room before the match at the half and from the sidelines....

Plus, Galatasaray will have Drogba and Sneijder along with Burak Yilmaz on the field.

Chelsea legend Drogba, who celebrated his birthday on Monday, could well be big factor in this match.

If we look at the recent stats, we see Schalke is the better side...

Galatasaray, hasn't done that good since the first leg match in Turkey!

Schalke will be without  Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Jermaine Jones

If Wesley Sneijder play on his original position,  Galatasaray's offense  will work better!

He needs to play behind the striker  not on left side of the field.

Recent form

Schalke: LLDWWW

Galatasaray: WWDWDL

Possible starting lineups

Schalke: Hildebrand; Hoger, Howedes, Matip, Kolasinac; Jones, Neustadter, Farfan, Draxler, Bastos; Huntelaar

Galatasaray: Muslera; Sabri Sarioglu, Nounkeu, Semih Kaya; Riera, Altintop, Melo, Selcuk Inan, Sneijder; Burak Yilmaz, Drogba

Both teams are focused ....

Don't be surprise if Galatasaray makes it to quarter-finals with dramatic way!

The 12th man in the stadium almost will be equal , where a lot of German-Turks will support Galatasaray.

Galatasaray will be without Johan Elmander....

At the press conference  Fatih Terim said , "We know we are up against a strong opponent but I am confident we will win tomorrow. I trust my team. Drogba and Sneijder will play tomorrow."

Drogba and Sneijder  has to show they are the clutch players to Fatih Terim!

Would they?

I think, so !

Drogba always like the spotlight in the Champions League ....
