Make stacks with Drax at 8/1

Live on Skysports 2: Tues 19.45: Julian Draxler can help Schalke (8/11, Stan James) overcome Galatasaray in the Champions League.

Schalke have the upper hand in their Champions League tie against Galatasaray having held the Turkish side to a 1-1 draw at the Turk Telekom Arena and back on home soil for the second leg, the Bundesliga outfit are 2/5 courtesy of Betfred to reach the last eight.

Ladbrokes price the hosts at 8/11 to prevail on the night at the Veltins-Arena where bet365 rate them at 11/4 to shade it by a one-goal margin but they’ll have to finish the job without the help of Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, who was carried off with a knee injury in his side’s home clash against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Nevertheless, Jens Keller’s charges should have enough firepower in reserve to sneak it and in Huntelaar’s absence, there’s another stand out first scorer wager in the shape of Julian Draxler.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has thrived since moving into a more central role and having struck three times in his last couple of outings, the youngster is a decent bet at a chunky 8/1 (BetVictor) to break the deadlock. Alternatively, Draxler can be backed at 11/4 via Blue Square to strike at any time.

Recommended Bets:
Julian Draxler to score first – 8/1 (BetVictor)
