Muslera eyes Schalke scalp

By Football News

Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera believes his side have every chance of beating Schalke in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Turkish giants secured qualification from Group H with a 2-1 win over Braga on the final matchday, and have been rewarded with a tie against Jens Keller's Bundesliga side.

Muslera said there are no easy games at the knockout stage of the tournament, but the 26-year-old feels progression to the quarter-finals is well within his side's capabilities.

He told TRTSpor: "Our priority was to qualify from the group stage. We drew an easier team compared to the other teams like Barcelona.

"Of course it is still a hard game. But the teams are (evenly matched) head-to-head I think."

Galatasaray progressed to the last 16 after they finished in second place in Group H behind Manchester United.
