"When a team has played in the Champions League, it is always an advantage," Magath said.
"We are lucky that Chelsea have had such a long trip to Istanbul to play on Wednesday. It's a good situation for us.
"I remember the situation - you have to stay at the airport, fly for a few hours and then play the game at night.
"Players can't sleep so well and are tired and then they have to spend more time at the airport. It bothers the players a lot.
"It gives us a chance. Chelsea are favourites, everyone knows that, but we'll try to fight and make a fast game.
"If we pressurise Chelsea then we have a good chance to win the game."
