These sides played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie and so both Chelsea and Galatasaray will feel they have a chance of making it to the quarter-finals. The Turks are clearly up against it but can they spring a surprise at Stamford Bridge? Read on for our match preview, betting tips and the latest live betting odds comparison.

Chelsea are priced at odds of just 5/11 with 888Sport to win here whilst Gala are out at 15/2 with Bet365 and are a little higher at Betfair. Those betting on the draw can get odds of 7/2 with Betfred but we can’t see past a home win here.

Galatasaray have some fine players, notably Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba, but at the Bridge Chelsea will have just too much experience and ability and even at such short odds they are worth backing.

Galatasaray are not great travellers and whilst the Blues had the occasional slip in the group stage, in general and in the Premier League their home form is superb. The visitors will need to score to have any chance and that should allow Eden Hazard and co plenty of space to hit them on the counter.

Roberto Mancini’s men may just have enough to nick a goal but overall we think Chelsea will win by 2-1 or possibly even 3-1.
