Team News: Galatasaray
The Galatasaray manager Okan Buruk will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game with a fully injury-free group available to select from. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Halil Dervisoglu and Eyüp Aydin.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group, there is just a single fitness problem for the FC Copenhagen manager Jacob Neestrup to be concerned about. Davit Khocholava (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
Our assessment is that Galatasaray will more than likely score a couple of goals against FC Copenhagen, who won’t find it easy scoring.
