Chelsea head into this evening’s match against the Turkish side with their noses just in front.

Jose Mourinho’s men managed to grab an away goal during the first game before an equaliser from Galatasaray dragged Roberto Mancini’s men back into the tie.

It was a professional performance which could have been far better but for a lapse in John Terry’s concentration from a corner.

Didier Drogba gets the chance to line up against his former employers in front of thousands of fans who still adore him.

However, as much as Chelsea supporters love the Ivorian, they will be hoping he has a stinker of a game, allowing Chelsea to build a quick, early lead.
