FC Copenhagen – Galatasaray 05.11.2013
FC Copenhagen sit on the last position in the group B with only one point after a draw with Juventus in the opening round.
They lost away to Galatasaray two weeks ago and before that lost convincing to Real Madrid.
FC Copenhagen are for the third time in their history in the group stage of Champions League. Only with win they will have chance for the third position. But two scored and eight conceded goals showed that they are the weakest side in the group. In the Danish league they have played with solid form in the last period. FC Copenhagen have three wins and a draw in the last four matches. They have also won in the Lanspocal Cup match six days ago. The midfielder Thomas Delaney will miss this match due to suspension. FC Copenhagen will probably include the former Premier League trio, experienced defender Olof Mellberg, the captain Lars Jacobson and the striker Daniel Braaten, in their starting eleven.
Galatasaray are on the second position with four points. They played with mixed success so far and have one win, one draw and one defeat. Galatasaray still have chances for the second position, most thanks to the weak results of Juventus.
Match: FC Copenhagen – Galatasaray 20.45h
League: Champions Leaguce
Our prediction: Away Win Odds: 2.35
Juvenus have tough match with group leaders Real Madrid, so if Galatasaray win on this match they will be five points in advantage over Juventus. The strikers Umut Bulut and Didier Drogba have scored two goals each in the competition so far. The midfielder Wesley Sneijder and the striker Burak Yilmaz played efficiently in Turkish Super Liga. Galatasaray have three consecutive victories in their league and currently are on the third position.
The midfielder Hamit Altintop will miss this match due to a knee injury.
I expect a guests’ victory on this match.
