Champions League football: Galatasaray v Chelsea, 7pm (k/o 7.45pm) Sky Sports 1

Chelsea travel to Istanbul to take on Galatasaray in the first leg of their last-16 tie, raising the possibility that John Terry will come up against an old mate in Didier Drogba, now plying his trade with the Turkish side. Galatasary came a distant second in their group behind Real Madrid, while Chelsea topped Group E, so the odds favour the London side over two legs. Blues stalwart Terry will no doubt relish a physical battle with the Ivorian.
