Galatasaray have started slowly, currently seventh in the Super Lig table, a bit surprising considering the presence of talented players like Didier Drogba, Burak Yilmaz and Wesley Sneijder.
Remember, this team was very close to mounting an improbable comeback against Real Madrid last season in the Champions League quarter-finals, nearly overcoming a four-goal deficit on aggregate with three goals before Ronaldo scored his second goal of the night in injury time, ending the threat.
Still, it\’s hard to ignore Real Madrid\’s 6-1 victory at Galatasaray\’s home digs earlier in the group round. There\’s no doubt there is a significant gulf in talent between these two teams, and the Turkish side would do well to simply earn a point. via | Bleacher Report
