Match Preview

Galatasaray are bottom of Group A of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) with just one point. That came in the reverse fixture (D 0-0), which marked just the second time in their last nine UCL games that ‘Gala’ have avoided defeat (D2, L7). This run saw them draw eight blanks including all four this season, while managing just two cleansheets.
Furthermore, Galatasaray haven’t defeated a Belgian side in seven attempts (D3, L4) and have lost their last three UCL home games. Galatasaray’s last ten UCL home matches have also seen them fail to score in five, while conceding 1.7 goals on average. A notable 12 of those 17 goals against were conceded before the break.
Club Brugge are just one point above their hosts, but have a chance to seal at least third place with a win here. However, Brugge have won just once in their last 16 UCL group stage matches (W1, D5, L10), drawing blanks in ten games during this run.
Much like their hosts, the visitors have been a first-half side themselves, scoring seven of their last eight UCL group stage goals before the break. Brugge do not travel well though, winning just two of their last 15 away UCL matches if including qualifiers (W2, D4, L9).
Players to watchSofiane Feghouli has scored just one career UCL goal for Galatasaray, which came via a penalty last campaign.
Emmanuel Bonaventure has scored both of Brugge’s UCL group stage goals this season.
