What We Learned from Galatasaray vs. Schalke

Galatasaray were held to a 1-1 draw with Schalke in their Champions League Round of 16 first leg clash on Wednesday.

The Turkish side went ahead early due to a Burak Yilmaz goal in the 12th minute, but Jermaine Jones drew the visitors level shortly before the half-time break and the score held until the final whistle.

The result was perhaps a dream for the visitors, whose poor run of form has seen them win just one out of their last 13 matches. The hosts, following their January acquisitions of Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder, might have hoped for more.

Still, with just half the tie having been played, it all remains in the balance and either team could well go through. Although there is still no clarity as to which is the better club, there are several notable talking points to take from Wednesday's match. Click "Begin Slideshow" for a full analysis.
