Real Madrid v Galatasaray
After the incoming transfers of Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder, Galatasaray has become a team to be reckoned with. Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo looks to continue leading Real Madrid through the Champions League after dispatching Manchester United in the Round of 16.
Leading Champions League scorers:
Real Madrid – Cristiano Ronaldo (8) *T-most in UCL
Galatasaray – Burak Yilmaz (8) *T-most in UCL
Players to watch:
Real Madrid – Diego Lopez; although Iker Casillas has been cleared to play, Lopez will be expected to keep his place in goal and will be tasked with maintaining Real Madrid’s 37-match unbeaten run at home.
Galatasaray – Burak Yilmaz; he has scored in 6 consecutive UCL matches and the Turkish league goal-scoring leader will pose a serious threat to the Real Madrid backline.
