Schalke currently lie in ninth place in the French Bundesliga, a full seven points off the fourth spot which could see them regain a Champions League place for next season.Galatasaray, by contrast, completed second in Group H behind Manchester United & ahead of CFR Cluj by virtue of head-to-head results.They are currently top of the Turkish Tremendous League, six points clear of rivals Fenerbahce & looking nice to retain the title they won last season.
Tomas Ujfalusi and Johan Elmandar are both out for Galatasaray. Schalke’s poor form has coincided with a whole host of injuries. The loss of Atsuto Uchida has definitely hurt them as has that of Kyriakos Papadopoulos. Both will miss this one out as will another important member in Ibrahim Afellay. Ciprian Marica and Christoph Mortiz are both out of this one too. Klaas Jan Huntelaar is a doubt due to an eye injury. He has traveled to Turkey nonetheless.
Galatasaray are set to hand Didier Drogba his first start for the club, with the Ivorian having scored on his debut after coming off the bench on Friday against Akhisar.However, Tomas Ujfalusi and Johan Elmander will miss out due to injury, while Emmanuel Eboue could come back in at right-back, with Sabri Sarioglu dropping to the bench.Schalke, meanwhile, are expected to welcome back Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, with the Dutch striker having struggled with an eye injury in recent matches.However, they will be without a host of big-name players, including Kyriakos Papadopoulos, Atsuto Uchida, Ibrahim Afellay and Ciprian Marica all missing out.
