Real Madrid vs Galatasaray Match Preview
Real Madrid continue to be far from convincing overall, but are backed to take a big stride towards Champions League qualification by completing the Group A double against Galatasaray.
Zinedine Zidane’s side, rather like their arch-rivals Barcelona, are a long way off their best in La Liga with the top five teams in the table currently covered by only one point – although, of course, El Clasico was postponed which means the ‘big two’ both have a game in hand.
In the Champions League, Real Madrid collected just one point from their first two matches, but they got back on track to avoid an embarrassing pool-stage exit when they won 1-0 away to Galatasaray two weeks ago with a first-half goal from Toni Kroos.
It means that if the Turkish club are beaten in the Spanish capital, they will be eliminated from the competition and the likelihood is that Real Madrid will advance in second position behind Paris Saint-Germain, their 3-0 conquerors at the Parc des Princes on match-day one.
The problem here for Galatasaray is that they are struggling to score goals away from home this season – apart from a 3-2 victory at Kayserispor in August they have bagged a total of only two more on their other six road trips.
Similarly, the Istanbul outfit have always been beaten comprehensively at the Bernabeu (see stats above) and we can see that happening again this time.
