Both Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder start for Galatasaray against Schalke in the Champions League this evening.

Galatasaray have named both Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder in their starting lineup for their Champions League clash against Schalke in Germany this evening.

The duo, who have previously won the competition, joined the Turkish club during the January transfer window and will aim to help them qualify for the quarter-finals.

Drogba will have Burak Yilmaz as his strike partner in the second leg of their last-16 tie, the first leg of which finished in a 1-1 draw in Istanbul last month.

Finland international Teemu Pukki has replaced Klaas-Jan Huntelaar as Schalke's main forward this evening, as the Dutchman is out with a knee injury.

Schalke: Hildebrand; Uchida, Matip, Howedes, Kolasinac; Hoger, Neustadter, Farfan, Draxler, Bastos; Pukki

Galatasaray: Muslera; Riera, Dany, Semih, Eboue; Melo, Selcuk, Sneijder, Hamit; Burak, Drogba
