Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira calls for focus ahead of the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash with Galatasaray on Wednesday.

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has called on his teammates to remain focused as they prepare to face Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Madrid welcome the Turkish outfit in the first leg of their quarter-final meeting in midweek, with the Spanish club among the favourites for the competition.

However, the German international believes that Galatasaray, who now have Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder, will provide a stern threat.

"Those two players (Drogba and Sneijder) have brought a new quality to the team, but they have other great players," he told UEFA's official magazine.

"For example [Hamit] Altintop, who I know, and who scored in their last match. It is always difficult to play against Turkish teams, so we must focus on the whole team and take it seriously, not just focus on Drogba or Snejider. If we do, I'm sure we'll get to the semi-finals."

Madrid overcame Manchester United in the previous round.
