Sports Mole has looked back over the encounter to determine if Galatasaray deserved to progress.

Was the result fair?
If either side had qualified, there couldn't have been many complaints - it really was that close. Having said that, Galatasaray were worthy victors. Any side that score three times away from home in the Champions League deserve to win the encounter.
No disrespect to Teemu Pukki, but he is no Klass-Jan Huntelaar. The Finn had several goalscoring chances that his injured teammate may very well have buried. It wasn't just Pukki that was wasteful, though, particularly during the second half. The tie was actually lost in the first half when they shipped two goals to put them on the back foot.
Granted they may have rode their luck at times, but their attacking display deserved it. They knew that goals were required going into the match and as a result had a positive attitude from the first whistle. Then when the time came to defend, they did so stubbornly.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Fernando Muslera: The Uruguayan goalkeeper has been linked with a host of clubs in recent months and on this performance you can see why. He made a string of saves after the restart to ensure that his Galatasaray side advanced through. With someone like him between the posts, you've always got a chance.
In a match of few errors, step forward Schalke goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand and captain Benedikt Howedes. The pair made a complete mess of a long ball over the top and Yilmaz capitalised to score into an empty and in doing so put his side 2-1 up.
You'd have to say that Jonas Eriksson's running of the game helped to make it the spectacle that it was. He always played advantage and rarely got out his yellow card. It's that sort of performance that people want to see from officials in Europe's top competition.
Schalke: It's Bundesliga action for Schalke this Saturday when they take on Nurnberg away from home.
Galatasaray: The Turks also return to domestic matters on Sunday when they travel to Kayserispor for a Super Lig encounter.
