Bet Live on Football: Galatasaray vs. ChelseaPublished February 26, 2014 by OCR Editor
Galatasaray vs. Chelsea, 7:45pm UK time.
Istanbul's Turk Telekom Arena is set for a very exciting UEFA Champions League round of 16 match tonight between home team Galatasaray and London guests Chelsea. Tensions will be high with the kick-off considering the word war between the managers of both clubs which has been stirred up the last few days.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has responded to Galatasaray boss Roberto Mancini's recent claims that he was the true architect behind Inter Milan's treble of 2010. As remembered, it was Mourinho who replaced Mancini as Inter boss in 2008 and brought them the historic treble, but, according to Mancini, all the groundwork was done by him for "the special one" to reap it.
A highlight of tonight's match will definitely be Chelsea's meeting with former striker Didier Drogba who was quite an iconic part of the London club. Will Drogba take away Chelsea's hopes of a Champions League title this year? Mourinho will try to secure an early goal and spend the rest of the game defending; it is vital for the Blues to keep a clean sheet here. Chelsea's back will have to be wary of both Drogba and Wesley Sneijder, however the Turkish back was also found to be vulnerable with 14 goals conceded in this season's Champions League group stage.
