The Turkish outfit have been struggling back in the Super Lig as well, where they are currently seventh on the ladder, five points behind the table-toppers. To pile on even misery, Galatasaray are without a win in their last four outings in all competitions and have failed to find the back of the net in their previous two on the trot.
Real Madrid will be looking for just their second win in the group stages of this season’s Champions League when they welcome Galatasaray to the Bernabeu on Wednesday night.

Real Madrid vs Galatasaray Match Preview
Real Madrid continue to be far from convincing overall, but are backed to take a big stride towards Champions League qualification by completing the Group A double against Galatasaray.
Zinedine Zidane’s side, rather like their arch-rivals Barcelona, are a long way off their best in La Liga with the top five teams in the table currently covered by only one point – although, of course, El Clasico was postponed which means the ‘big two’ both have a game in hand.
In the Champions League, Real Madrid collected just one point from their first two matches, but they got back on track to avoid an embarrassing pool-stage exit when they won 1-0 away to Galatasaray two weeks ago with a first-half goal from Toni Kroos.
