Match Preview & Team News
Galatasaray and Real Madrid can ill afford another failure as they share the bottom of Group A standings with a single point apiece in the opening two games. They both drew to Club Brugge and lost to PSG so far in the competition. Whilst such a record was kind of expected from the Turkish outfit, not many experts could have predicted Los Blancos’ slump.
Zinedine Zidane’s men continued with their dismal season on Saturday evening when they fell 1-0 away at newly-promoted Mallorca in the 9th round of La Liga. The team’s maiden domestic loss of the season allowed their arch-rivals Barcelona leapfrog them at the top of the ladder after a 0-3 drubbing of Eibar on the same day.
Real Madrid lost three, drew one and won one of the last five matches in the Champions League. They conceded as many as 13 goals during the five-game sequence. This is why we fancy Galatasaray to find the back of the net here, especially after Cimbom’s strong attacking showing in the 3-2 domestic win over Sivasspor on Friday. The former Brighton & Hove Albion forward Florin Andone completed a brace netting his first goals for Gala on the occasion. The hosts will likely once again be without Radamel Falcao who is out through Achilles injury he suffered in the second-round clash with PSG.
The two sides met each other in the group phase of the 2013/14 campaign when Los Blancos notched as many as 10 goals en route to clinching two wins over the Turkish outfit.
