“We are very strong at out home field. We need an absolute victory before the second leg in London. I know that we must perform 100% to achieve this. But I remember Inter was in the same condition as Galatasaray but we lifted the trophy in that season when our rivals were considered to be the biggest favorites.” said Wesley Sneijder the important Dutch midfielder.
“I am very glad to be in Galatasaray and it is a real joy to live in Turkey. Galatasaray fans are brilliant. I will be very happy if I hit the nets of Chelsea. Respect.” said Didier Drogba one of the best living striker on planet earth.
Galatasaray will probably begin this match with 4 defenders consist of Telles, Semih, Chedjou and Eboue. In front of these Ceyhun will be the link between midfield and defense. I must emphasize the importance of Ceyhun here. Since Mancini took over Galatasaray Ceyhun plays this role perfect and with his existence such midfielders like Selcuk, Sneijder and Melo became more productive and efficient. However this kind of developments can not be found in UEFA official website or BBC. IMO the improvement of defense line is a result of Manicini’s Ceyhun and such players like him are always a hidden hero. In midfield such creative players like Sneijder, Selcuk and aggressive player Melo (who is one of the best current player of Turkey Super League) will be lined. I must mention that Melo is playing his best football I have ever seen so far. He deserves a big applause from all the fans. There is no important absent in Galatasaray and everyone is ready and fully motivated waiting for this match to record a victory in front of 52.652 Galatasaray fans.
I am not going to talk very much about Chelsea because I do not live in England and follow English Premier. However as far as I know they do not have a good striker. This is not my word. These are the words of their head coach Mourinho. I am sure with his words such strikers like Torres and Eto must have felt bad. IMO such veteran players are more vital for such important matches like this. Well it is also a fact that he said his team lacks striker for Premier league not Champions League. In fact Chelsea are not coming for a victory and they will be happy to record a draw in Istanbul.
Bookmakers are making an other mistake here. Galatasaray are not underdog and they can never be underdog when they play at home. However this life is full of illusions. If I tell you that cow milk is an harmful drink and advice to keep away then many people would think I am mad however in fact cow milk is a very harmful drink for your bones and causes osteoporosis. Trust me and only drink your mother’s milk. It is one of the biggest lie that cow milk is healthy for humans like it is a big lie that Galatasaray are underdogs in
