Atletico de Madrid will take on Galatasaray in the Champions League match on Wednesday, Nov. 25 at the Vicente Calderon in Madrid. Atletico Madrid are just one win away to seal their progression in the competition as they head for their final home Champions League Match.
Atletico Madrid will definitely bank on their home advantage as the “Galatasaray side are out of sorts and without a real leader at the helm, after the Turkish team sacked manager Hamza Hamzaoglu last week,” writes Bleacher Report.
According to the Daily Mail UK, Galatasaray have named veteran former boss Mustafa Denizli as their new manager but he won’t be traveling to Madrid with his team for the Champions League Clash.
The 66-year-old, Denizli, has already proved his worth as he managed the Turkish national team for four years and even made it into the European Championship back in 2000.
“It’s a great honor to be here. A difficult and challenging task is waiting for me now,” said Denizli. “I am excited to be back with the only club for which I would risk my successes, my reputation.”
Atletico Madrid are in prime form as they rose to second in the La Liga table winning four out of their last five games. Goal scoring could be a major problem for the team as they have only managed to score only one goal in each of their last three league games.
Atletico (4-4-2): Jan Oblak; Juanfran, Josema Gimenez, Diego Godin, Filipe Luis; Koke, Gabi, Tiago, Yannick Carrasco; Fernando Torres, Antoine Griezmann
Galatasaray (4-2-3-1): Fernando Muslera; Jason Denayer, Semih Kaya, Hakan Balta, Olcan Adin; Selcuk Inan, Jose Rodriguez; Lukas Podolski, Wesley Sneijder, Yasin Oztekin; Burak Yilmaz
