Stadion Gelsenkirchen - Gelsenkirchen 12/03/2013 - 20:45CET (20:45 local time)
Round of 16, Second leg
Gelsenkirchen-born Hamit Altıntop produced a sensational strike to help send Galatasaray AŞ into the quarter-finals for the first time since 2001 at the expense of former club FC Schalke 04.
Roman Neustädter's first UEFA Champions League goal had put Schalke 2-1 up on aggregate, but Cimbom turned this round of 16 tie on its head in five first-half minutes. Having previously failed to score for the side he joined last summer, Altıntop opened his account with a sublime long-range drive before Burak Yılmaz's eighth of the competition gave Fatih Terim's Turkish champions the half-time edge in Germany.
I have no explanation for the first half. Everyone put in about 10% less than what was required. We allowed them too much space.
Jens Keller, Schalke coach
Our new target is to reach the semi-finals. There will be some really good teams there, but it won't matter who we face because we will go out and fight like lions.
Burak Yılmaz, Galatasaray forward
