As part of the second leg of the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League, Galatasaray and PSV will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation?
The players of Galatasaray fought a desperate struggle for the championship title last season, but lost the first place to Besiktas, falling behind the Black Eagles due to additional indicators. The first official meeting of the "Lions" in the new season happened in a match with PSV in the framework of the Champions League qualification, where the Turks suffered a crushing defeat from the Dutch with a score of 1:5, which is actually a verdict.
PSV players, like their rivals, failed to get the title in their national championship last season. The team of Roger Schmidt dropped out of the championship race in the first round and fell behind the opponent in the face of Ajax by 16 points at once. The start of the new season turned out to be impressive for the Eindhoven team, because in the first match against Galatasaray, PSV defeated their opponents with a score of 5:1.
Statistics and figures:
- PSV is the favorite of the meeting;
- The first game ended with a score of 5: 1 in favor of PSV;
- The Dutch have not lost in the last 5 meetings;
- Galatasaray won 4 out of 5 matches.
PSV showed their best football in the first match against Galatasaray. Next up is a good game performed by the Turkish team. Most likely, the "lions" will be able to defeat their opponent, but it is unlikely that this will help the hosts to reach the next round of the competition.
