Drogba: Galatasaray lucky to leave Eskisehirspor with a point

The Cote d'Ivoire striker believes his side should count themselves fortunate to have left Anatolia with a draw to their name and hopes the next few days are used wisely
Didier Drogba has admitted that Galatasaray were "lucky" to return to Istanbul with a point following Saturday's Super Lig stalemate at Eskisehirspor.

The Turkish champions extended their unbeaten run to eight matches thanks to their 0-0 draw at the Ataturk Stadium, but the former Chelsea forward conceded the side were fortunate to have escaped Anatolia unscathed.

"It was a tough game, we played a good team. We were lucky to go home with a point," Drogba told Lig TV.

"We must now spend the next 2-3 days analysing our performance. Yesterday [on Saturday], we encountered some difficulties in entering the final third."

Gala sit seven points clear at the top of the division, with 11 rounds of the regular season remaining, and must also negotiate the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Schalke in a fortnight.
