FC Copenhagen vs Galatasaray by Foxserkan
An important stat of Galatasaray is that they conceded in the last 14 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE matches that they played on away. Also Galatasaray won 10 and lost 3 of last 20 European matches that they played on away. With the average of 28.9 Galatasaray are the oldest team of CHAMPIONS LEAGUE tournament this season. Main goal keeper Muslera, important left back Hakan Balta, substitute defender Gokhan Zan and important midfielder Sneijder are absent. Hamit is long time injury and I do not count him as an important absent. 22 years old third goal keeper Eray Iscan will protect the nets.
“Our goal keeper has no CHAMPIONS LEAGUE experience but I trust him. We are going to play a very difficult match in Parken stadium against FC Copenhagen. Dutch national Sneijder is also a very important absent. I did not decide whom to replace him with yet. We will play for the victory. But this will be more difficult match comparing to the first one that we hosted FC Copenhagen in Istanbul. I will not make major decisions in the eleven. We will look for 3 points however a draw is also good for us. I am still working on Galatasaray and I have joined 5 weeks ago and I still need time to establish my system. However my players are smart and they will adapt to my style.” said Mancini the head coach of Galatasaray.
“I am not feeling that I am 100% ready to play and my coach will make the final decision. Our new coach Mancini is building his system, we need time and patience.” said Aurelien Chedjou the important defender of Galatasaray.
The biggest development on Galatasaray side is that main goal keeper Uruguayan national Mulera is absent as he broke one of his foot finger. Eray Iscan the third goal keeper will replace Muslera! And I do not trust this young man (22 years) in this high standard match. This is such a match for Galatasaray that if they can win then they will guarantee to play in either CHAMPIONS LEAGUE or Europa League after the group stage. The absent players in Galatasaray side is a big problem and I have a very but very strong belief that they will concede at least 2 goals tonight. I must remind that last 6 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE matches of Galatasaray resulted with goals over 2.5 already and current conditions are pushing me even more to invest on goals. This is the first match of young third goal keeper Eray Iscan. They have problems in defense line. Left back Hakan is absent besides important defender Chedjou may not perform 100% as he had an injury in the last league match. On the other hand FC Copenhagen are very motivated and everyone know how they play in Parken Stadium. They are going to play one of their best football this season and the visitors are in trouble.
With the current conditions of both teams and considering the interesting stats of Galatasaray, it is a big possibility that both teams can score in this match and betting on goals is an easier way of wining. I will take a risk and bet on over 3.5
