'We are not scared of Real Madrid' says Galatasaray

Galatasaray have kept their feet on the ground in their run to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, one in which they have recovered from an unpromising start to set up a last-eight meeting with Real Madrid. 

 Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

Date: Wednesday, 3rd April

K/o: 19:45


Real Madrid

Lopez, Arbeloa, Varane, Ramos, Coentrao, Khedira, Alonso, Di Maria, Ozil, Ronaldo, Benzema


Muslera, Eboue, Semih, Nounkeu, Riera, Altintop, Melo, Selcuk, Sneijder, Drogba, Burak


The striker was a key member of the Portuguese manager's squad during his three years at Stamford Bridge. Drogba lines up for Galatasaray against Mourinho's Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday - a trophy the forward won with the Blues last May.

"I don't think he's got over Chelsea," the 35-year-old Drogba said of Mourinho. "They haven't got over him."    

Never before have the Turkish side gone so far in the competition, and as far as their Brazilian midfielder Felipe Melo is concerned, their humble approach was crucial to the recovery they made in the group phase. Without a victory in their three opening games, Gala beat Romania’s Cluj on Matchday 4 to kick-start their campaign, and have since grown in belief, so much so that Melo feels they have what it takes to topple the Spanish giants.
