FT: Galatasaray 1-1 FC Schalke 04
Schalke fans would take this 1-1 home to Gelsenkirchen, right? It's not perfect, but could have been worse.— DW - Sports (@dw_sports) February 20, 2013
88 - Jermaine Jones lashes a shot high and wide of Galatasaray's goal. Very few chances at the Turk Telekom Arena.
79 - Julian Draxler comes close from the edge of the box after a gut-bursting run on a terrible surface. He drags his shot wide of Muslera's far-post.
74 - Jens Keller has introduced some fresh legs in Teemu Pukki who replaces ineffective striker Huntelaar. It has been a relatively quiet second half with Schalke's industry keeping them in this match.
64 - Sloppy play from Schalke was punished by Didier Drogba who passed to Yilmaz - but the striker has strayed into an offside position.
54 - Strong block from Sabri to deny Farfan from doubling Schalke's lead after a fluid counter-attack down the right-hand side. The wide-areas are certainly fruitful for the Royal Blues.
47: Scottish referee Willie Collum hands out his third booking of the evening to substitute Nordin Amrabat for a rough tackle on Jefferson Farfan.
HT: So we'll have one change at the interval: Wesley Sneijder being replaced for Nordin Amrabat.
#S04 so: Pass links, Pass rechts - Flanke, Abstoss. Gala so: Neustädter Pass, Ballverlust, bumm. Tor. Schalke - Pass, Pass JERMAAAAINE....— Hassan Talib Haji (@hassanscorner) February 20, 2013
"Pass on the left, pass right - flank, goal kick. Gala this: Neustaedter pass, lost the ball, boom. Goal. Schalke - pass, pass JERMAAAAINE ...."
HT: Statistics suggest Schalke 04 have been the better of the two in the first period. The Royal Blues have 55% of the ball possession, to Galatasaray's 45%. Both sides have had four shots on goal - with the Turkish side also hitting the woodwork.
USMNT fans wondering why Klinsmann rates Jones should watch him with Schalke. The quality is there, though doesn't always show it w/ USMNT— Ives Galarcep (@SoccerByIves) February 20, 2013
HT: Galatasaray 1-1 FC Schalke 04 - A fair score based on the dynamics of the game in the first 45 minutes.
44 - GOOOAL! TORRR! Slack from Nounkeu in the centre of the pitch and Schalke 04 break with pace and Jermaine Jones finishes with conviction from close range.
Only one of the Galatasaray back four good enough for a deep run in the Champions League. Got all the talent/experience elsewhere.— Paul Sarahs (@Wanchope_Dickov) February 20, 2013
37 - Timo Hildebrand sharply blocks the goalscorer Yilmaz in the left-defensive channel after nice work from Didier Drogba. A very open first-half, thus far, but Schalke could be level.
34 - Jermaine Jones will miss the return leg in Gelsenkirchen after picking up a booking for simulation.
26 - Schalke with an encouraging venture forward, Jefferson Farfan snatching at a loose ball on the penalty spot and missing the target completely. The Peruvian really should have leveled the scores there.
22 - Both sides playing at a frantic tempo in the midfield of the pitch. Little space for either team to exploit. The Royal Blues looking slow at the back and Yilmaz's movement is causing probelms in the centre.
12 - GOAL! Galatasaray are ahead after 12 minutes. Burak Yilmaz slamming the ball high into the net after Schalke failed the clear the danger on the edge of their 18-yard-box. A horrible start for the Bundesliga side.
1 - Schalke start purposefully in the Turk Telekom Arena with Michel Bastos' cross-come-shot forcing Muslera into an early save. Jefferson Farfan did his best to get the ball across goal - but it is eventually cleared by the Turks.
