Chelsea predicted line-up v Galatasaray

Published Add your comment

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba returns to Stamford Bridge for the first time since leaving the club in 2012.

Drogba’s final touch for the Blues came from the penalty spot in Chelsea’s Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

The Ivorian forward scored the winning spot-kick to ensure Chelsea won their first ever Champions League title.

Stamford Bridge hero Drogba has the chance to knock his former side out of the Champions League tomorrow as Galatasaray take on Jose Mourinho’s side in the second leg of their last-16 tie.

Chelsea failed to beat Turkish outfit Galatasaray at the Turk Telekom Arena at the end of February.

Fernando Torres opened the scoring after just nine minutes but his early effort was cancelled out by Aurelien Chedjou Fongang.

The Cameroonian defender’s goal has left the tie on tenterhooks as Galatasaray will go through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League if they can win tomorrow’s game in west London.

Chelsea will again be without Blues duo Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah as they represented Benfica and FC Basel respectively in earlier rounds.

Mourinho’s biggest decision will be who he chooses to play in attack - with Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o competing to start ahead of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian.

Chelsea predicted line-up v Galatasaray: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Mikel, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Torres.
