Man Utd vs Galatasaray by Neuro
Manchester United comes from a 4-0 home win against Wigan. They lost a penalty early with Javier Hernandez, however in the second half scored four goals and finally achieved an easy home win.
Now their main target is Champions League, where they want to avoid last season's fail when they lost from Basel and excluded from CL, playing with lot of young players to most of the Champions league games, but against Galatasaray Ferguson stated that they need experienced players, so he will not do that anymore.
Everyone can remember last season in Champions League, where Manchester United were not careful and serious, especially at home matches, winning just one match at home against Otelul, and losing by Ajax and Athletic Bilbao in Europa league. Anyway, against Turkish teams, Man Utd has three wins, a draw and two defeats at home.
Patrice Evra will be in the line-up for tonight's match, while Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa overcame their injuries. Absents will be Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young.

Galatasaray started impressively in the Turkish league and they are first to the league table after four games played (three wins and a draw). The team's roster is rich and offers lot of flexibility to the coach Fatih Terim.
Galatasaray spent a lot this season and made several good transfers in order to win the title and gain a good position in Europe. The return of Galatasaray in the group stages of Champions League after 5 years of absence is noteworthy. Their seeded group is very good for them, they can qualify, and most players are optimistic for qualification to the next round.
Main defender Ujfalusi is injured and will be out until March of 2013, while Cris (Lyon) will fill the gap and expected to be in the starting line-up.
Squad: Muslera - Balta, Semih, Nounkeu, Eboue - Amrabat, Inan, Melo, Altintop - Elmander, Bulut.
Galatasaray should have absolute concentration if they want to take a result there. Their image to their domestic league maybe it is good till now, but it is obvious that they struggle in defense, where they received six goals in three matches against Kasimpasa, Besiktas and Bursaspor. I don't think that this will chance tonight, and with a such fragile defense, i think that Manchester will prevail easier than expected.
