Schalke 04 v Galatasaray Football Match – 12.03.2013 – UEFA Champions League Match Preview , Prediction, Squad Info
Schalke 04 v Galatasaray football match will be in 12.03.2013 at Schalke, Germany for UEFA Champions League. Schalke 04 just came back to Bundesliga. Their performance was quite bad at Bundesliga and they couldn’t even win 6 matches in a row a few months ago. They have sold their problems, they gained their rythym back and they want to gain success at Champions League this season. They have won 3 matches in a row after they have faced with Galatasaray in Istanbul. They have beaten Borussia Dortmund with 2-1 score in their last home match. Julian Draxler and Huntelaar was in form in Schalke 04’s last matches. Jermaine Jones, Raffael, Ibrahim Afellay, Ciprian Marica and Lars Unnerstall are injured and banned and they won’t be in Schalke 04 squad for Galatasaray match.Kyriakos Papadopoulos is also lightly injured in Schalke 04 squad and I am not sure if he can play in this match.
Galatasaray has dissapointed their supporters with a draw against Schalke 04 in first match. They have also lost against Genclerbirligi in a home match in Turkish Super League. Galatasaray has good squad and they made good transfers at winter and their supporters want success. Hamit Altintop won’t play against Schalke 04 cause he is banned. Johan Elmander is also injured at Galatsaray squad in this match. I believe both players absenses won’t affect to match result. Turkish teams are playing well at Germany generally cause they don’t feel that it’s an away match. There are more then 5 million Turks in Germany and they support Turkish teams in Europe matches. Didier Drogba, Burak Yilmaz and Wesley Sneijder is in form at Galatasaray.
THE MATCH WILL BEGIN AT 19:45 WITH GMT
Match Prediction: Galatasaray Wins
