The hosts are determined to make home advantage count in this first-leg and Drogba will be highly motivated to have a positive influence.

The last time the Ivory Coast international kicked a ball in the Champions League, it was to score the winning penalty for Chelsea in the final against Bayern Munich.

A few months on, he is back in the elite European club competition with Galatasaray and keen to show football fans around the world that at 34-years-old, he can still be a force at the top level.

Looking at the odds involving Drogba, Blue Square are offering a rather generous 13/8 on the former Chelsea man scoring at anytime.

Considering he scored within five minutes of his debut for Galatasaray, there is certainly no danger of him taking too long to settle in to his new surroundings.

The Champions League is a competition he knows very well too and there is no doubt that Schalke 04 will be wary of Drogba’s threat. 

His powerful style, superb aerial ability and general aura will ensure he is a handful.

For him to have a very successful evening, you can get 8/1 (Bet365) for Drogba to score twice or more, while 50/1 (Bwin) is available for the hat-trick. 

Finally, for him to break the deadlock in this first-leg, Blue Square are offering 11/2. 

There is no doubt that his influence could be decisive too. Since the group stages, Galatasaray have added Drogba and Holland international Wesley Sneijder to their ranks, something manager Fatih Terim is very happy with.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday night’s match, he said: "When he is fit, Drogba has the ability both to keep the ball for us up front and to lead the team. 

"When you add Sneijder to that, we will perform much better. Both have integrated with the team very quickly."

Galatasaray and Drogba take on Schalke from 7.45pm on Wednesday evening.

Match odds with Blue Square – 
Galatasaray – 5/4
Schalke 04 – 11/5
Draw – 9/4
