Galatasaray – Real Madrid, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR GALATASARAY - REAL MADRID
Galatasaray has been suffering since the beginning of the season. We think that the problems of the team are not that they lack quality, which may be obvious, because the team is the champion of Turkey, and at the moment it is not much different from this team that was last season. The problems there are more inside the dressing room and there are connections between the staff that are lost. Falcao and Lemina are new additions, but still suffer from injuries. When they return to play, we expect an improvement in the play of Galatasaray.
In Real Madrid, drama began after the first loss in La Liga this season, although they started in 1st place in the Championship before the round. Of course, this should not surprise us. Their two terrible Champions League results, combined with a weak game of complete and poor inclusion of new players who are considered to be stars of the team, are part of the club’s problems. Perez is said to have already agreed to return Mourinho, but these are just rumors.
Expert view : Undoubtedly, Real Madrid will claim victory and it is a must, because if they do not qualify in this group, great tragedies could be made for the 13-time European champions. They play poorly in defense and even Captain Ramos is not up to par. Without Modric, it is very difficult in the midfield, and even when he plays, he is not always in shape. We expect an offensive approach from Real Madrid, which means that again there will be problems in defense and there will be times when they will suffer a counter attack from the opponent. Galatasaray’s play in the UCL has given us enough confidence that they will score today. Prediction – BTTS at 1.66.
