Champions League Open Thread: Watching Salah Watch Chelsea Edition

The second set of Champions League round of 16 matches wrap up this week, and Tuesday gives us one tie still in doubt before Wednesday offers up the chance for schadenfreude.

Chelsea still have some work to do at home against Galatasaray as the current Premier League frontrunners host Turkey's second-place side following a 1-1 first leg draw. With both the away goal and the stronger squad, Chelsea are firm favourites to advance to the quarter-final, but it's far from certain. Meanwhile in the evening's other match, Real Madrid welcome Schalke to the Bernabeu having already secured their place in the next round—at least assuming the Germans can't overcome a 6-1 deficit that means they now have to score at least six themselves to overcome Madrid's monumental away goal advantage. Both matches kick off at 7:45PM GMT/3:45PM EST.
