Champions League: Galatasaray v Manchester United – Wednesday 29th November – KO 5.45pm

Galatasaray beat Manchester United 3-2 at Old Trafford and Wilfred Zaha and Mauro Icardi were two of the scorers in what was a massive win for the Turkish side. The group is wide open in terms of who will finish in 2nd place and qualification for the knock out stage.

Bayern Munich have cruised through to the next stage of the Champions League with 4 wins in a row, but FC Copenhagen, Galatasaray and Manchester United are all in the hunt to finish 2nd.

As well as the victory in Manchester, Galatasaray picked up a home point against FC Copenhagen and know qualification is in their own hands with Manchester United at home and FC Copenhagen to play.

The atmosphere on Wednesday night will be electric as the home side know that qualification is in their own hands as a win over Manchester United mean that the Red Devils can’t overtake them, plus Manchester United face Bayern Munic at home in the final game.

Domestically, Galatasaray are top of the Turkish League and with a win at the weekend, confidence is high and their home form is excellent. They’ve only conceded 8 goals from 13 games in the League and scored over 20 from their 13 games.

For Manchester United it’s been an up and down season so far and the one positive has been the Champions League form of Rasmus Hoijlund who is top scorer in the competition with 5 goals.

Hoijluns has been fearless in his play and relished the European style of football and can be a massive threat for Manchester United in this game. Fernandes and Rashford will have to step up and the recent form of McTominay is key for the away side as they look to stop Galatasaray from imposing their football.

Harry Maguire is also an important figure for Manchester United to stop Icardi, but Wilfred Zaha enjoys playing against Manchester United and will be relishing the chance to put in another top performance against them.

It promises to be a fiercely competitive game as Galatasaray host Manchester United and one which the Red Devils will have to show maturity in order to compete with the home side who will have a massively passionate crowd behind them.

It’s a tall order for Manchester United and with Galatasaray knowing a win could secure qualification and a good weekend result domestically to boost confidence, it could be a long night for Manchester United.

With a day less rest, Erik Ten Hags’ men must be up for the challenge and all XI must be on their A game or they could fall to another Champions League defeat and this one will eliminate them from the competition.

Our bet of the day is 8/5 with BetUK for Galatasaray to beat Manchester United and heap pressure on Ten Hag.
