Atletico Madrid vs Galatasaray by Garc1
Atletico is currently in 2nd place with 7 points earned after 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, won at home Astana (4-0) and now has the chance to seal the qualification with a win against Galatasaray.
The defensive solidity has been one of its strengths, as only conceded goals in 1 of the last four games, and his attack has scored regularly since scored goals in 3 of the last 4 games. Its clearly stronger than its opponent and despite scoring less goals this year we cannot forget that the only loss in champions at home was against Benfica ( big surprise even for me...) , the first team ever to win in Vicente Calderon since the Champions league was created, to lose against Galatasaray it will be a bigger surprise...
We all know that Simeone teams at very hard to play against, very solid, very combative, very effective teams, Barcelona struggle to win, Real struggle to win so you can imagine what kind of difficulties Galatasaray will face today.
Athletic have enough chances to win Galatasaray because the list of Colchoneros is full of quality players, as Griezmann, Jackson and Torres and so on,Atletico continues to make a good internal campaign which is already 2 to 4 points of Barcelona and Galatasaray is only 4th in the Turkish League 7 points leader and Besiktas .
Galatasaray comes in 3rd with only 4 points, in the first match played against the same opponent this round, the team lost by 2-0 at home and The defensive solidity has not been his strong point, as it has undergone at least one goal in each of the last 4 games.
The bad news continues because in the last game against Benfica Selkuc seen a yellow card that will suspend him for this game and he is a very important midfield key player.
The Turkish team playing away from home not won for this competition, having lost in Lisbon and tied in Kazakhstan, in fact in 5 clashes played by these teams resulted in three wins for the Colchoneros and 2 draws. The Turks never won.
Galatasaray not in good time and on top is forced to play the attack because only then can dream of clearance. Atletico, with less stress and greater peace of mind, coupled with the fact of having the support of the Spanish fans i think Atletico will win easily for me.
