Julian Draxler says that Schalke are not underestimating Galatasaray ahead of their clash in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday.

Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler has admitted that winning against Galatasaray on Tuesday will not be easy.

The Royal Blues will host the Turkish giants in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at the Veltins Arena.

"We know that Galatasaray have a very good team," he told reporters. "With Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder they have signed two top stars, but we should not underestimate the other players. Of course, it is nice to be on the pitch playing against such world stars."

The first leg between the two sides in Istanbul last month ended in a 1-1 draw.
