    That is all from us tonight. But join us tomorrow for live coverage of Bayern Munich v Arsenal and Malaga v Porto.


    Elsewhere, Barca triumphed against Milan with a 4-0 win to book their place in the next round. Gala join them, along with Juventus, Dortmund, Real Madrid and PSG.

  • 95'

    And there goes the final whistle. A fantastic victory for Galatasaray in the end and you have to say they deserved it. A superb first-half attacking performance before they sat back in the second and defended for their lives to then hit Schalke on the counter in the final moments.

  • 95'

    Altintop plays in Amrabat as Gala break down the other end. Hildebrand makes the save before Amrabat finishes the rebound into an empty net.

  • 95'


  • 94'

    One minute to go. It is really all or nothing time for Schalke now...

  • 94'

    Kolasinac goes into the book for a late challenge.

  • 93'

    Fuchs tries to deliver a ball into the box but it is hit way too hard and misses his team-mates before falling into the arms of Muslera.

  • 93'

    Obasi fouls Nounkeu in the box and Gala win the free-kick. A bit of time to breathe for the away side.

  • 92'

    Farfan drills a ball across the face of the goal. It falls to Obasi but he is unable to control it and Gala are able to clear.

  • 91'

    Farfan gets to the byline and hangs a great cross to Bastos at the far post but he can only head it straight at Muslera.

  • 91'

    Five minutes of injury time to be played...

  • 90'

    Fuchs tries a go from distance. It takes a deflection and sails well wide of the target.

  • 90'

    Uchida tries to drive forward down the right but Amrabat does well to stop him and clear the ball to safety.

  • 89'

    Farfan sends the free-kick into the box but Melo does well to head clear.

  • 89'

    Farfan stands over the ball...

  • 88'

    Amrabat concedes the foul on Uchida in a dangerous position for Schalke.

  • 87'

    Uchida picks up the ball on the right and finds Bastos unmarked at the far post. The winger manages to fire a shot away but it was never troubling Muslera.

  • 86'

    We're into the last five minutes. Still Schalke push forward but they have not looked their most dangerous over the last few minutes.

  • 86'

    Gala make a change too as Bulut comes on for Yilmaz.

  • 86'

    Schalke also bring on Meyer for Hoger.

  • 85'

    Schalke bring on Obasi for Pukki.

  • 84'

    Drogba goes into the book for a late tackle.

  • 83'

    Schalke just beginning to lose some of their attacking impetus. They need to raise their level for one final push.

  • 82'

    Bastos sends a dangerous ball into the box from the left but Nounkeu is there yet to again to head clear to safety.

  • 81'

    Drogba muscles off Howedes before fouling Uchida. Unlucky as it looked as though he might be able to burst clear there.

  • 80'

    We're into the last ten or so minutes of the game. Time is starting to tick for Schalke who need a goal.

  • 79'

    Gala bring on Zan for the injured Kaya.

  • 78'

    Kaya is down hurt after being brushed aside by Draxler in that previous attack. Looks as if he is going to have to be stretchered off the pitch.

  • 77'

    Draxler has been a real handful for this Galatasaray defence in the second half. You feel if Schalke are to score again then it will have something to do with him.

  • 76'

    Lovely work by Draxler down the left as he shakes off his marker and drives into the box. He tries to square the ball to the unmarked Pukki in the middle but Muslera does well to intercept the pass.

  • 75'

    Farfan sends a free-kick from the right into the box and picks out the run of the unmarked Howedes but the defender can only head high and wide. Should have hit the target.

  • 74'

    Bastos with a ball into the box from the left but Nounkeu is there once again to avert the danger. He has had a top game.

  • 73'

    Gala manage to head clear the resulting corner but only as far as Farfan who smashes a shot towards goal only for Nounkeu to throw his body in front of the strike. Top defending.

  • 73'

    A slick move from Schalke as Pukki plays in Bastos down the right who forces a corner for the home side.

  • 71'

    Remember, despite it being 3-3 on aggregate, Schalke still need to score another as Gala are currently leading on away goals.

  • 69'

    Gala make a sub as Amrabat comes on for Sneijder.

  • 68'

    Schalke win a corner. Farfan sends it in but again it was not the best of deliveries and Gala get it clear.

  • 67'

    Penalty shout for Schalke as Draxler seems to strike the ball against Melo's hand. Nothing given though.

  • 67'

    Penalty shout for Schalke as Draxler seems to strike the ball against Melo's hand. Nothing given though.

  • 66'

    It is one-way traffic here. Schalke all over their opponents.

  • 65'

    Schalke open up Gala as Draxler picks the ball up inside the area before beating a man and bringing another top save out of Muslera.

  • 65'

    What a thrilling game this is. Schalke deserved that goal for their constant pressure. It really could go either way now, you could not call it.

  • 64'

    Gala go straight up the other end and Sneijder nearly extends their lead with a superb effort from the edge of the box but it falls just wide of the top corner.

  • 63'

    Pukki slides in to beat Muslera to the ball. It falls to Uchida who knocks it to Bastos who then fires home into the empty net.

  • 63'


  • 62'

    Hoger fires an effort from well outside the box but it smashes off the bar.

  • 61'

    Draxler does brilliantly to beat two men before driving into the Gala area and firing an effort just wide of the top corner. He is been magnificent for Schalke tonight, really grabbing this game by the scruff of the neck.

  • 59'

    It is all Schalke currently, who are on the lookout for two goals of course. Gala having to put in a real defensive display at the moment. And so far it has been top notch in this half.

  • 58'

    Draxler picks out Pukki in the box. The striker tries to turn and shoot but he is put under pressure by the Gala defence and in the end his shot is poor and fails to find the target.

  • 56'

    Pukki finds some space in the box and manages to get a shot away at goal but Muslera makes a top save to turn it past the post.

  • 56'

    Farfan takes the corner but it is poor and fails to beat the first man.

  • 56'

    Schalke are having a real go at it now as Uchida gets forward down the right to win the corner.

  • 55'

    Fuchs finds some space down the left and sends a delivery into the box but Gala head it clear. The ball soon falls to Draxler on the edge of the box but his shot at goal canons back off a defender.

  • 54'

    Pukki latches onto the end of Draxler's ball before firing a shot well wide of the goal. He had Bastos in the middle which would have been by far the better option as the angle for shooting was pretty tight.

  • 53'

    Yilmaz picks the ball up on the edge of the box and swivels before firing an effort at goal, only for Hildebrand to pull off a top save to turn it round the post.

  • 52'

    A lot of last-ditch defending going on from Galatasaray. That could well be the precedent for the rest of the night.

  • 51'

    Barcelona are now 3-0 up against AC Milan if you were wondering. That would be enough to take them through to the next round.

  • 49'

    Yilmaz latches onto a long ball over the top of the defence but the linesman's flag soon goes up for offside.

  • 48'

    Uchida comes forward down the right and plays a neat ball into Draxler in the box but his touch lets him down and the move soon comes to an end.

  • 48'

    Farfan sends a dangerous ball into the box but Gala head clear once again.

  • 47'

    The corner is very poor though and Gala are able to head clear with ease.

  • 46'

    Schalke are going to have to attack from the off, and they have started well by winning a corner.

  • 46'

    Schalke get this second half underway...


    A half-time sub for Schalke as Fuchs comes on Neustadter.


    The teams have made their way out for the second half...


    Roman Neustadter leads the celebrations after he scored against Galatasaray


    Burak Yilmaz has scored in six consecutive Champions League matches. This equals the record previously set by Marouane Chamakh.


    What a first half. What a turnaround from Galatasaray. Schalke with it all to do now as they need to score two to progress to the next round. They may well be able to do that, but you would certainly back the Turkish side to grab another too.

  • 45'

    No, as Muslera does well to claim the cross. And there goes the half-time whistle.

  • 45'

    Schalke win a late corner. Can they grab a goal from this?

  • 45'

    Schalke lump a long-throw into the box to which Bastos gets on the end of it, only for Muslera to make a decent save to deny him.

  • 45'

    Two minutes of injury time to be played...

  • 45'

    Bastos tries to sneak a cross in from the left but Eboue does well to block off his effort.

  • 44'

    Schalke now need to score twice if they want to make the quarter-finals as Gala have two away goals.

  • 43'

    That was a superb counter-attack from Gala. Schalke were pushing forward only to find themselves completely exposed at the back.

  • 42'

    Yilmaz latches onto the end of a Riera long ball and races clear of his marker before firing past the oncoming Hildebrand.

  • 42'


  • 41'

    ...a long way to go yet though!

  • 41'

    As it stands we are heading for extra-time...

  • 40'

    Farfan sends the ball into the box but Gala are able to head clear.

  • 39'

    Schalke win a free-kick in a dangerous position. Farfan stands over it.

  • 38'

    A stunning, stunning goal. And a vitally important away goal for Gala. This tie is blown wide open.

  • 37'

    Altintop picks the ball up from about 30 yards out, takes one touch before rifling an effort into the bottom corner of the net. Hildebrand absolutely no chance.

  • 37'


  • 36'

    Neustadter looks in a lot of pain after a coming together of bodies with Altintop. He has gone off for some treatment.

  • 35'

    Eboue drives forward down the right once again and picks out Sneijder in the box. The attacker hits it first time but his effort sails just wide of the post. Unlucky, although the Dutchman could well have taken another touch there.

  • 34'

    Sneijder picks out Yilmaz with a superb ball into the box but the striker makes a mess of his touch. The ball soon falls to Eboue but Schalke clear his cross to safety.

  • 33'

    There are plenty more goals in this game for sure. It still has a very open feel to it.

  • 32'

    Farfan plays the one-two with Hoger but goes down under a challenge from Riera on the edge of the box. No free-kick, says the ref.

  • 31'

    Drogba is back on the pitch now, by the way.

  • 31'

    Inan hangs the corner in but Schalke are able to head clear the danger.

  • 30'

    Eboue drives down the right and does a superb job in winning the corner off Bastos.

  • 29'

    Drogba has had to limp off the field for treatment. He looks as if he should be ok to continue though.

  • 29'

    Drogba is lying in a heap at the moment after a strong challenge from Hoger. There have been a few of them already tonight.

  • 28'

    Bastos drives forward down the left but his ball into the box aiming for Pukki is poor and Muslera is able to claim it with ease.

  • 26'

    Bastos plays Draxler in down the left with a neat back heel. The Schalke man drives forward but Nounkeu is able to clear his cross.

  • 25'

    Schalke head clear Sneijder's free-kick. It falls to Inan on the edge of the box but his effort sails well wide of the target.

  • 25'

    Gala win a free-kick in a dangerous position. Sneijder stands over it...

  • 24'

    Drogba sends in a dangerous cross but Schalke are able to head clear. It falls to Melo on the edge of the box but his first-time effort rebounds off a defender and canons away to safety.

  • 23'

    It is real end-to-end stuff here tonight...

  • 22'

    Bastos drives forward down the left and plays Pukki into the box who cuts inside to shoot, but his effort was never troubling Muslera.

  • 22'

    Gala, as you would expect, instantly taking the ball up the other end of the pitch...

  • 20'

    Gala already knew they had to score so they won't worry too much. A goal for them now would be enough to force the tie into extra time.

  • 19'

    A huge goal for Schalke. The fans are well on side now. Gala need a big response after that.

  • 18'

    Gala are unable to deal with a dangerous Farfan corner and Neustadter is there to half-volley first time past Muslera.

  • 18'


  • 17'

    Neustadter tries to play in Draxler but Riera is there to close him down. However, the Schalke man does a great job to win the corner off the full-back.

  • 16'

    Remember Gala do need to score tonight if they want to progress through to the quarter-finals. A 0-0 draw will be enough for Schalke.

  • 15'

    Hoger goes into the book for a foul on Drogba.

  • 14'

    Gala push forward down the other end and Drogba plays a great through ball to Inan but Hildebrand closes him down quickly to make an important save.

  • 13'

    Matip gets on the end of Draxler's corner but he is unable to keep his header down and it sails over the bar. Should have done better.

  • 12'

    Uchida drives forward down the right for Schalke but Melo is there to concede the corner.

  • 11'

    Yilmaz beats the offside trap to latch onto Inan's ball but Howedes recovers well to put the tackle in.

  • 10'

    An exciting start to the game then, with play seeming very open on this rather large pitch. Let's hope it continues like this.

  • 9'

    Farfan gets in a cross from the right for Schalke but Nounkeu does well to get his foot on it and clear upfield.

  • 8'

    The free-kick gets lumped forward and Pukki picks it up inside the box. The striker turns before laying it off to Bastos who strikes first time at goal but Muslera makes a comfortable save.

  • 8'

    Draxler goes down under the challenge of Melo and wins the free-kick.

  • 7'

    An excellent start from the visitors, they are really taking the game to their opponents in these opening few minutes.

  • 6'

    Sniejder plays in Drogba inside the box but Hildebrand pulls off a top save to deny him at the near post.

  • 6'

    Gala are on fire here as Yilmaz picks up the ball in the box and goes down, but no penalty given. Drogba arrives on the scene and strikes first time but his effort sails wide of the post.

  • 5'

    Altintop tries a first-time pass to Eboue out wide but he fails to find his man and it drifts off for the throw.

  • 4'

    A feisty start to this game with both teams looking to play football and get forward.

  • 3'

    Altintop has a go from distance but it was never troubling Hildebrand as it fizzles well wide.

  • 2'

    Drogba wins a flick-on to play in Sneijder but a thumping challenge from Matip stops him in his tracks.

  • 1'

    Draxler tries to play in Pukki with a neat little flick but it is just a little long and runs off for the throw.

  • 1'

    And Gala get this second leg underway...


    The Veltins-Arena is rocking. The home support are desperate to see the Royal Blues book a place in the quarter-finals tonight.


    Here they come...


    The teams are lining up in the tunnel. We are just minutes away from kick-off...


    Remember, a 0-0 draw will be enough for Schalke to progress. Who do you think will make it through? Follow me on Twitter @Tom_Sweetman and let me know.


    It appears as if Schalke will be lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, while Galatasaray have opted for a 4-1-3-2 system.


    We also have live commentary of tonight's other Champions League clash between Barcelona and AC Milan. You can follow that here.


    Ross Dunbar believes tonight is a chance for Schalke's lesser lights to lead the way. Read here.


    Schalke and Galatasaray come into tonight's game with contrasting results. The Germans recorded a memorable 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, while the Turkish side lost 1-0 to mid-table outfit Genclerbirli.


    Galatasaray, meanwhile, boast a strong line-up with the competition's second top-scorer Burak Yilmaz as well as January signings Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder among their ranks. Coach Faith Terim will be hoping Drogba and Sneijder have had enough time to gel with their team-mates to perform at the top level tonight.


    Schalke will have to make do without the injured Klaas-Jan Huntelaar as well as the suspended Jermaine Jones - who scored for the Germans in the first leg. Coach Jens Keller is able, however, to call on the likes of in-form Julian Draxler and Joel Matip.


    Galatasaray team: Muslera, Riera, Dany, Semih, Eboue, Melo, Selcuk, Sneijder, Hamit, Burak, Drogba.


    Schalke team: Hildebrand, Uchida, Matip, Howedes, Kolasinac, Hoger, Neustadter, Farfan, Draxler, Bastos, Pukki.


    Cetin Cem Yilmaz says that there are no more excuses. Gala must deliver in Europe and beat Schale. Read here
