Real Madrid (Home)
The home team will face the same opponent that they’ve thrashed last time on the road to retain the 2nd spot at home this time. The Spanish heavyweights also sit on the 2nd spot of their domestic league with 22 points tie along with Barcelona on top of them and Real Sociedad behind. Back at home for this match, Zinedine Zidane’s men are unbeaten in 8 home matches since losing an Audi Cup Semi-final match against Tottenham Hotspur 0-1, won 5 where they have seen scoring 2 or more goals and drawn 3. They will enter this match without a couple of key players due to injury with Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez expected to miss out along with long-term absentees Marco Asensio and Nacho. Last season, they failed to reach the semi-final of the Champions League for the first time since 2009-10 and this must-win match will determine if they can make it this time.
The visitors failed to hold their lead to the same opponent as they were left at bottom of Group A table after the defeat at home last time. They are now without a win and produced just a single point in 3 games so far. The Turkish giants are also winless in 3 of their last 5 matches across all competitions, won 2, defeated in 2 and drawn 1, failing to score in 3 of those recent games. Fatih Terim’s side also dropped their position in their domestic league from a back-to-back title win to the 7th place of the Super Lig table so far this season with 16 points from winning 4, losing 2 and drawing 4 of 10 domestic league games so far. They are also winless in their last 8 Champions League matches, while 4 straight away games without a win across all competitions, drawn 3 and lost 1 since winning to Kayserispor 2-3.
In the last 10 years, these sides have met 6 times where Real Madrid have won in 5, while Galatasaray have won the other 1 match.
