Galatasaray Amazing Going Forward

Level on points with Copenhagen but boasting an inferior goal difference, nothing can be decided regarding the fate of Okan Buruk’s men this week.

However, a Wednesday defeat combined with a shock Copenhagen win over Bayern Munich would leave them in a dangerous position ahead of a possible winner-takes-all clash with the Scandinavians on Dec. 12.

Three days after being defeated in Germany, Buruk’s men suffered their first Turkish Super Lig loss of the season to Hatayspor, but the hosts returned to winning ways with a 4-0 victory over Alanyaspor on Saturday.

Galatasaray made plenty of moves to freshen up their forward line in the summer and they’ve put together a potent mix up top. Mauro Icardi continues to be a threat, which has seen him linked with a January move.

Adding Wilfried Zaha on a free transfer also boosted their options and the ex-Crystal Palace winger is in form ahead of the visit of his former side. Galata lost former Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez to a grade two hamstring injury in the second half, ruling the Colombian out of the visit of Man United.


United Appears to Have Turned the Corner

This has been a tough campaign in Europe for Manchester United, who has lost three of their first four group games to sit bottom of the table. They’ve got just two matches left as they scramble for a top-two finish, with a visit to Galatasaray followed by a home clash against Bayern Munich.

A 3-0 victory over Everton on Sunday leaves them at the top of the Premier League form table. A return of 15 points from their last six games is better than any other team’s record in that period.

The visitors will live to fight another day in Group A so long as they draw or win against Galatasaray. However, a fourth defeat from five Champions League games will send the Red Devils packing, and they will be condemned to finish bottom if they lose and Copenhagen puts Bayern to the sword.

Man United is one of several teams affected by an injury crisis, as all of Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Amad Diallo, Mason Mount, Jonny Evans, Christian Eriksen and Tyrell Malacia will sit out the trip to Istanbul.

Marcus Rashford has been suspended for only one Champions League match following his red card against FC Copenhagen, so he will not play against Galatasaray.


Man United Struggling at the Back

Manchester United has conceded 11 goals across their four group games. Galatasaray has plenty of in-form attackers, with Wilfried Zaha scoring four in five meetings with United.

The hosts have scored seven times across their matches in this group. Sunday’s success at Goodison Park was the first time this season that Erik ten Hag’s side has won a game by more than a single-goal margin.

Manchester United is out to avenge their disappointing 3-2 loss to Galatasaray at Old Trafford last month, failing to score in three away games versus the Turkish side, their longest such run against a single opponent in Europe.
