Galatasaray vs Schalke Match Preview and Predictions
For anyone that cares, Galatasaray face Schalke tonight. Even with the meteoric January signings to arrive in Turkey, flicking over from the other game tonight will be done by very few.
With United vs Real last week, and AC vs Barca this week, all the other fixtures seem like an unimportant footnote, like having Jude Law as a supporting actor.

The Jude Law fixture tonight doesn't even make Sky Sports 3, something Welsey Sneijder should have thought about before asking Manchester United for £290,000 an hour. But I'm sure he's perfectly happy trotting out to 'Welcome to Hell' banners every week. Those banners hung, correctly represent the hostility shown by the fans, but doesn't really act as a metaphor for their once respected home form. Galatasaray beat an already qualified United side here in the group stage, scored late in a 1-1 draw with Cluj and were humbled by Braga 2-0. In a league where they comfortably sit top, they've lost 2 of the last 5.
So that opens the door for an out of form Schalke side to re-rail a broken down season. Lying 9th in Bundesliga, the club have kept ticking over with their unbeaten Champions League campaign at the forefront of plans. Despite a theoretically strong forward line of Huntelaar, Farfan and Draxlar, scoring is proving very difficult for the Germans, with no one above 5 goals in league competition. The strengthening of Galatasaray may not prove as pivotal as the weakening of Schalke; new Spurs boy Lewis Holtby could prove a big miss by the end of the second leg.
So that's both teams slated. That doesn't reinforce any prediction. The no goalscorer bet is brave, in that it can be all over if Drogba wants it to be; but it is priced at 11/1 with Bet Victor. Working along those lines old man Victor will also give 5/2 on the draw, and 19/4 on Draw/Draw. And as a coverage bet in a low scoring draw, under 1.5 goals is a top price of 11/4 with the very same man, who obviously doesn't agree with us.
