Galatasaray will host Bundesliga side Schalke when the two clubs meet in a Champions League face-off in Istanbul on Wednesday night.
Dortmund have their sights set on preserving their perfect Champions League record when they take on Atletico Madrid. Meanwhile, Schalke look to take another step towards the last 16 when they host Galatasaray.
Domenico Tedesco's season has been endured rather than enjoyed so far, but in Europe there have been bright moments. His Schalke side came agonisingly close to providing another one in Turkey.
American international Weston McKennie's late header gave Schalke three vital points away at Russian champions Lokomotiv Moscow. It was Domenico Tedesco's first Champions League win as a coach.
Schalke were hoping to find some inspiration in Europe's top club competition, and although they didn't win there was good reason to be satisfied. Their opponents, Porto, were awarded two penalties in Gelsenkirchen.
