Galatasaray vs. Schalke, 2013 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

Didier Drogba is making his full debut for Galatasaray, picking up his first start with his new club against Schalke. He made his first appearance over the weekend, scoring a goal as a substitute. He'll partner Burak Yilmaz up top, with fellow new signing Wesley Sneijder sitting in behind the strikers. Galatasaray has played in a 4-4-2 formation with no serious frills or variations for most of this season, and will be making a slight change to accomodate Sneijder.

Schalke's team is as expected, given their current injuries. Joel Matip and Marco Höger fill in along the back line, while Tranquillo Barnetta is the attacking midfield player who finds himself as the odd man out.

Galatasaray starting lineup (4-3-1-2): Fernando Muslera; Albert Reira, Dany Nounkeu, Semih Kaya, Sabri Sariglu; Selcuk Inan, Felipe Melo, Hamit Altintop; Wesley Sneijder; Burak Yilmaz, Didier Drogba

Schalke starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Timo Hildebrand; Sead Kolašinac, Joel Matip, Benedikt Höwedes, Marco Höger; Jermaine Jones, Roman Neustädter; Jefferson Farfan, Michel Bastos, Julian Draxler; Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
