Real Madrid vs. Galatasaray: Lineups

Jasper Juinen

Diego Lopez keeps his place in the Real Madrid side, and Galatasaray name the same eleven that defeated Schalke as the two teams meet in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie in Madrid.

Diego Lopez keeps his place in goal for Real Madrid ahead of Iker Casillas as they face Galatasaray at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The goalkeeper was in exceptional form when Real progessed against Manchester United, and he keeps his place in the team along with Raphael Varane, with Sergio Ramos also in central defence. The rest of the team is as expected, with Angel Di Maria, Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira returning to the side.

Galatasaray, meanwhile, name the same team that prevailed over Schalke, with Wesley Sneijder, Burak Yilmaz and Didier Drogba comprising a formidable front three ahead of the rest of their side.

Real Madrid starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Diego Lopez, Michael Essien, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, Fabio Coentrao; Sami Khedira, Xabi Alonso; Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria, Cristiano Ronaldo; Karim Benzema.

Galatasaray starting line-up (4-3-1-2): Fernando Muslera; Emmanuel Eboue, Semih Kaya, Dany Nouenkeu, Albert Riera; Felipe Melo, Hamit Altintop, Selcuk Inan; Wesley Sneijder; Burak Yilmaz, Didier Drogba.
