Galatasaray hope to erase a three-goal deficit when they welcome Real Madrid (2:45pm, Fox Soccer Channel) to Turk Telecom Arena in Istanbul, Turkey on Tuesday night.
The Turkish side will be without their leading Champions League scorer, Burak Yilmaz, but with Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba on the pitch, anything is possible. Jose Mourinho meanwhile will look to qualify for the semifinals for the third straight season with Real Madrid.
Málaga travel to north Germany with heavy hearts, as manager Manuel Pellegrini’s father passed away on Saturday. Starting defender Martin Demichelis said that the whole team is united behind Pellegrini and will do everything they can to pull out a victory against Borussia Dortmund (2:45pm, Fox Soccer Plus/MSG+).
Borussia manager Jurgen Klopp finally welcomes back Mats Hummels from an ankle injury, and Jakub Błaszczykowski is now fit as well for the German side. Last years Bundesliga champions are undefeated this season at home in Champions League matches, and with the scoreless draw in the first leg in southern Spain, the hosts will have a lot of confidence that they can reach the next round.
