Schalke 04 v Galatasaray Odds
Galatasaray upset the odds by knocking Schalke 04 out of theChampions League at the last sixteen stage. The Germans won their group in fine fashion, finishing ahead of Arsenal in Group B but a dip in their domestic form since Christmas saw them come up short against the Turkish champions.
The pair played out a 1-1 draw in Istanbul in the first leg, but goals from Hamit Altintop, Burak Yilmaz and an injury time winner Umut Bulut meant there was just too much to do for the German side, crashing out 4-3 on aggregate.
Despite the win, Galatasaray are still one of the outsiders for the Champions League this season.
