Galatasaray needs a victory in the Turk Telekom Arena duel with FC Porto to be sure of qualifying in the 16th Europa League, but with a little luck going to the European spring even in case of a defeat. FC Porto is already the winner of the D group, and the excellent form of the Lusitans leads us to a positive result.
Even if he had a disappointing run in the Champions League, he is very close to qualifying in the spring of the Europa League, having one point advantage and the direct match advantage over Lokomotiv Moscow, the Russian champion.
His only success was his debut against Lokomotiv, then he scored a point in the next 4 stages, also in Istanbul, with Schalke.
There are also real problems in the domestic championship for Fatih Terim’s team, being only 7th in 15 stages. He has not managed to win in the last 4 stages, winning every time.
If he failed to impose Turk Telekom with Bursaspor, Fenerbahce, Konyaspor and Rizespor, the chances are very low to do with FC Porto, the most formidable team in the Portuguese championship.
There are also 3 important absences in the host team, the midfielders Gumus, Belhanda and Akba being injured. Turkey’s hopes for a positive result come from Derdiyok and Oneykuru, which have 5 goals and 4 goals this season.
Probable team: Muslera – Linnes, Kabak, Donk, Aziz, Nagatomo – Oneykuru, N’Diaye, Reges, Rodrigues – Derdiyok.
He dominated the Portuguese championship and clearly dominated this group, where Schalke was the main champion.
The only match of the Champions League in which he failed to impose was the one with Schalke in Germany. In the tour with Galatasaray was only 1-0, but the difference in the field was obvious.
In Primeira Liga is the leader, comes after a series of 5 consecutive wins, has the best attack and the best defense. The team’s top scorers are Marega and Aboubakar, but Brahimi, Soares and Ze Manuel have also shown a very good offensive.
Coach Sergio Conceicao has only available to Cameroonian Aboubakar and has announced he will send the best 11 for this game.
The probable team: Casillas – Maxi Pereira, Felipe, Eder Militao, Telles – Herrera, Danilo Pereira, Torres – Corona, Brahimi, Marega.
Football Prediction of the Day Galatasaray vs Porto
Galatasaray crosses a weak form, has real problems in getting into the domestic championship and it would be a big surprise to beat FC Porto.
For Turks victory is not mandatory. If he plays cautiously, he can get a draw, a result that also pleases the Lusitans.
Even in the case of a failure, Galata can move on to the Europa League because it is unlikely that Lokomotiv Moscow will win at Gelsenkirchen with Schalke.
Porto is unbeaten in the European competition and aims to stay the same after the Istanbul match, proof being the starting team that will send it to Conceicao.
