Real Madrid vs Galatasary Betting Tips and Predictions
Real Madrid are having a bad season, or at least that’s what we’re being told. Really though, Madrid have lost just two matches all season and sit second in the league and in Group A in the Champions League. That’s not bad for a team having a bad season. They do need to do better in the CL though, sitting five points behind PSG at this stage means the best they can hope for is qualifying behind the Parisians. Galatasaray meanwhile haven’t won an away CL match since 2013, a run of 15 matches. Read on to find out our value pick for this match.
Real Madrid vs Galatasaray Betting Tips and Predictions: Real
Real haven’t performed well in this season’s CL where they’ve won one, drawn one and lost one. In the reverse fixture they could only beat the Turkish side 0-1 thanks to an early Toni Kross goal. With PSG all but qualified Los Blancos need to get back on track and ensure they qualify for the second round alongside them. PSG will visit Madrid next month so they really need to get the three points on offer here.
They’ve back in decent form again though, having won three of their last five matches and in their home matches they’ve not lost since last May at the Santiago Bernabeu. In team news, both James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale will miss the match.
Real Madrid vs Galatasaray Betting Tips and Predictions: Galatasaray
Galatasaray sit rock bottom of Group A with just one point from their three matches so far. Their away form leaves a lot to be desired too, of their five most recent matches away from the Turk Telekom Stadyumu they’ve only won 1/5. In the CL, as mentioned above, they’ve not won an away game since a 2-3 win over German side Schalke in 2013.
In team news, Ryan Babel will feature for the away side, but Radamel Falcao will miss the match.
