Galatasaray vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Real Madrid will know the time has come for them to start winning matches if they are to avoid an ignominious Champions League exit – and they are backed to triumph in Istanbul.
The club that dominated Europe’s elite club competition from 2014-18, when they lifted the trophy four times out of five, look a shadow of their former selves this season, even under Zinedine Zidane who led them to the last three of those victories.
Los Blancos also lost to Mallorca in La Liga at the weekend and it is crunch time for them now with they, Brugge and Galatasaray separated by only one point as they vie for what looks like being second place in the group standings behind PSG.
