Champions League: Real Madrid vs Galatasaray Betting Preview

Real Madrid is standing on the first position in group B of Champions league and they are practically qualified for the next phase of Champions league.


The big blow for home team is injury of their best player, Cristiano Ronaldo, who has a problem with strain, so he will not play today. Out are also Raphael Varane, Sami Khedira and Fábio Coentrão due to injury, while Luka Modric is suspended.

Galatasaray is standing on the second position with 4 points. Juve has also 4 points, but they are playing against FC Copenhagen and probably will win, so I believe Galtasaray will try to make a good result tonight. Even, if they lose, they will have another chance in the last round when they will host Juve and try to reach the next phase of Champions league. Hamit Altintop, Fernando Muslera, Aydin Yilmaz, Engin Baytar and Yekta Kurtulus are all injured, while Wesley Sneijder and Semih Kaya are both doubtful.

Both teams have problems with injured and suspended players. Carlo Ancelotti has announced that they want to win the last two matches in gruop and finish the group phase on the best way. When Real Madrid play we expect many goals. In the last five matches we have seen average 4 goals per match so I expect something similar tonight. Galatasaray has nothing to lose so I believe they will play an open match, so one of their good strikers Didier Drogba or/and Burak Yilmaz could score.

Real Madrid vs Galatasaray Betting Tip: over 3.5 goals @ 2
