Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Venue: Türk Telekom Stadium (Istanbul)
Gala are having a troubled season and cannot seem to attain the lofty heights set last season when they finished as champions in the league. Currently, they sit 5th with a string of draws to their name. Their champions league exploits are equally deflating, D1 L1. The side is yet to register a win with their only positive result being a draw against Club Brugge and are yet to score a single goal in their group matches so far.

Coach Fatih Terim will rally his side to go for glory against an unconvincing Real side. He knows that all is not lost as 2nd placed side Brugge is bound to lose to French champions PSG and as such, the Turkish giants will bring their A-game with the club faithful fully behind them.

Real Madrid are having a lukewarm domestic season and were dethroned in La Liga by perennial rivals Barcelona after suffering a 1-0 loss at Mallorca. Los Blancos, who are the record Champions League winners, have had a horrid start in this years campaign. They too are yet to register a win in the two games played so far - D1 L1.

Back to back matches against the Turkish side will determine how their campaign will pan out as they lock horns with PSG on November 26th in what is billed to be a table-topping decider. The Spanish side will arrive in the Turkish capital firing from all cylinders as they rested key players in Saturday’s loss. Such is the importance of this fixture to them.

Galatasaray vs Real Madrid Predictions

The Turkish champions are having a slow start in the domestic league as well as in the champions league. A draw against Club Brugge was followed by a 1-0 loss to PSG. They are coming up against a wounded but lethal Madrid side who are in unfamiliar territory at the bottom of the group. Zidane’s boys are expected to deliver all the 3 points in this fixture as they look to get their campaign back on track.

History is on their side as Gala have not won any of their last 5 meetings against Real Madrid. In fact, the Istanbul giants have only won once in their last 17 matches against Spanish opponents.
