Galatasaray vs Club Brugge: Match preview
Very little has been shown by Turkish champion Galatasaray this season in the Champions League group. Four matches went by and Galatasaray only has a point on his account and that was in the match where they didn’t scored (0-0 at Club Brugge).
It is interesting to note that Club Brugge, especially in recent times, has very often played matches with a lot of goals. That is how 7/9 of Club Brugge’s last matches ended.
Galatasaray team news:
Galatasaray will play a home game against the Belgian squad this Tuesday for the third place. The odds for the Europa League are still good, as Club Brugge only escapes by one point.
Third place is one of Galatasaray’s goals, but it is certainly a big wish to score the first goal this season in Group A of the Champions League. Specifically, the Turks remained large offensive debtors over four games (goal difference 0-8).
Otherwise, the course of the Turkish Championship so far is proof that Galatasaray is not enjoying a particularly good season. The announcement of this duel was very slim as Galatasaray lost the home game from Istanbul Basaksehir (0-1).
Probable lineup: Muslera, Mariano, Marcao, Donk, Nagatomo, Feghouli, Bayram, Lemina, Seri, Belhanda, Buyuk.
Club Brugge team news:
By early December, Club Brugge had only one defeat in the season, in all competitions. The “culprit” was PSG who beat Club Brugge 5-0 at the end of October.
But recently, the Belgian squad has tied another two defeats. Another from PSG (0-1 in Paris) and then less expected in the home championship at Antwerp (1-2).
Club Brugge definitely made a better impression in the Champions League than, for example, Galatasaray. Against that rival, Club Brugge, given the game shown, should have won the home match (0-0). He could have celebrated in Madrid as well, leading 2-0 against Real Madrid, but that match ended 2-2.
But with a point higher than the Turks this Tuesday, Club Brugge is also matched by a draw on the away roster in the form of a third-place finish and a continuation of the European season in the Europa League. Club Brugge also has theoretical chances for second place.
Probable lineup: Mignolet, Kossounou, Deli, Mechele, Mata, Vanaken, Schrijvers, Balanta, Diatta, Okereke, Bonaventura
It is an important match for both teams. In our opinion it is a match which should be won by Galatasaray. According to that it is their final opportunity to score a goal.
