Turk Telekom Arena, Istanbul will be hosting on 26 February 2014, an UEFA Champions League - 1st leg match between Galatasaray and Chelsea. The match referee will be Velasco (Spain).
Galatasaray got a narrow victory at home against Juventus and it made them reach to the last sixteen teams. In the league, they also defeated Besiktas with a single goal in the derby and chasing the league leaders. Coach Robert Mancini has no najor absent ahead of the first leg; but Aydin Yilmaz is missing because of his heavy injury. Some players are also unavailable as their names were not given to UEFA. The performances of Sneijder, Drogba and Burak Yilmaz are important for the Turkish side.
Chelsea   finished on the first place in their group, and sported only two losses (both against Basel). They come from a very important home win over Everton, because they remained at the leading position in the Premiership. They have been picking up steam with their performances despite being dumped out of the FA Cup by Manchester City.
Oscar is a slight doubt for the visitors after picking up a knock in the weekend win over Everton. David Luiz and Jon Obi Mikel are also major concerns after they were unavailable for that match. Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah are cup-tied.
Gala haven’t failed to score at home this season but along with Manchester United and Atletico Madrid, Chelsea conceded just three goals in the group stage and have been breached just once in their last five Premier League outings. Mancini was involved in a number of clashes with Chelsea during his time at Manchester City - winning six of nine meetings in all competitions .
