MATCH PREVIEW

Fenerbahce win the Tuesday’s first leg against Zenit. On Thursday the Europa League’s round of 32 will continue with fifteen successive matches. In one of them another Istanbul club Galatasaray will Benfica at their Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompleksi. How will play these famous clubs tonight?

Turkish champions in 2017/18 for a record 21st time, Galatasaray qualified for a 15th appearance in the UEFA Champions League group stage – the same number as all other Turkish teams combined.

After opening Group D with an impressive 3-0 home win against Lokomotiv, the Istanbul side picked up only one further point from their last five games. They failed to score in all three away defeats.

Portuguese Liga runners-up in 2017/18 after a club-record four successive league titles, Benfica kicked off their European season in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League with that 2-1 aggregate win against Fenerbahçe before PAOK were defeated in the play-offs (1-1 home, 4-1 away) to send the Lisbon club into the group stage for the ninth season in a row – and 14th in all.

Having finished bottom of their group with zero points in 2017/18, the Eagles won home and away against AEK Athens to claim third place in Group E, their only other point coming in a 1-1 draw at home to Ajax.

The clubs have met on three occasions, Galatasaray beating Benfica 2-0 away in the 2008/09 UEFA Cup group stage before both teams won their home fixture 2-1 in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League group stage; Selçuk İnan scored in Istanbul and Jonas did likewise in Lisbon.

The only UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie to feature two teams who spent the autumn in the UEFA Champions League, Galatasaray against Benfica is a heavyweight meeting between the most decorated clubs of Turkey and Portugal.

These sides are in a good form in their national tournaments and unbeaten within a long period. We expect to see a tough game with a lot of scoring chances. We predict both teams to score (yes) with a big coefficient of 1.97
