Galatasaray vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Real Madrid will know the time has come for them to start winning matches if they are to avoid an ignominious Champions League exit – and they are backed to triumph in Istanbul.
The club that dominated Europe’s elite club competition from 2014-18, when they lifted the trophy four times out of five, look a shadow of their former selves this season, even under Zinedine Zidane who led them to the last three of those victories.
An opening 3-0 Group A defeat at Paris Saint-Germain was followed by a 2-2 home draw with Club Brugge, in which Real Madrid were two goals down at half-time and only salvaged a point through a late equaliser from Casemiro when their opponents were down to 10 men.
Los Blancos also lost to Mallorca in La Liga at the weekend and it is crunch time for them now with they, Brugge and Galatasaray separated by only one point as they vie for what looks like being second place in the group standings behind PSG.
But Galatasaray are nothing special. They are solid at the back but have been struggling this season to score goals, at least until Friday when they won 3-2 at home to Sivasspor to climb to fifth position in their domestic league table as they defend the Turkish title.
Defeat for Real here is unthinkable from their perspective and while a draw would be no disaster with the home match against Galatasaray next on their European schedule, they are fancied to get it right and ease their qualification worries.
