Possible Chelsea starting lineup against Galatasaray + Prediction


Chelsea will be looking to progress to the quarter finals of the Champions League on Tuesday, when they face Turkish giants Galatasaray at Stamford Bridge.


The Blues suffered a shock defeat on Saturday at Aston Villa, which has left the title race wide open, especially with Liverpool and Arsenal winning their respective games on Sunday.

The central talking point of Tuesday’s match will be the emotional return of club legend Didier Drogba to West London. The Ivorian will be looking to mark his return at the venue with a goal, and his new side will be reliant on him, with Chelsea having bagged an important away goal in the first leg, giving them the advantage ahead of this encounter.

Nemanja Matic is cup-tied and will be unavailable for the match. Willian and Ramires both saw red cards on Saturday but will be eligible to play on Tuesday.

Samuel Eto’o has a better scoring rate at home and so expect the former Barcelona man to start, while Brazilian Oscar is likely to retain his place as well.

Prediction: 2-1; Chelsea have an irrepressible home record this season and expect them to progress to the next round of the competition.
