After Manchester United's failure had the evening all to itself yesterday, it's back to a pair of Champions League kickoffs at 7:45PM GMT/2:45PM EST today. For many, the headliner will be Schalke hosting Real Madrid in a match the home side likely needs a result from to keep things interesting in the return leg. Schalke currently sit fourth, only a point back of Dortmund and two back of Bayer Leverkusen, while Madrid are on form and in the thick of the title hunt in Spain as always. Fans of English football also have some action today as Chelsea travel to face Galatasaray, a draw that sees the London club heavily favoured.
