Turk Telekom Arena, Istanbul (Turkey) will be hosting on Tuesday, 17 September 2013, an UEFA Champions League (groupe B) match between Galatasaray and Real Madrid. The match referee will Mark Clattenburg (England)
Galatasaray team hasn’t lost a single game domestically this season. Though its record 1/3/0 is not the best for the team. Galatasaray is expected to perform very well in Champions League game as it the has a decent and experienced squad with players like: Drogba, Yilmaz, Sneijder, Altintorp and Melo. And one point can be noticed here, is that Galatasaray brings in aged players (many of key players over 30) when, normally, it should focus on bringing in young players, who can add a lot to the team.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, have a record of  3/1/0 domestically, and it made a draw with Villarreal 2-2 away. New in the team, Gareth Bale, was among the eleven and he could score. However, Ozil has left the team and Isco seems to have a promissing future with Real Madrid. Players: Coentrao, Marcelo, Alonso and Varane will miss this game because of their injuries and Real Madrid is able to find the best solutions.

Possible line-ups:
Galatasaray: (Manager: Fatih Terim) Muslera - Hakan, Chedjou, Semih, Eboue - Melo, Engin, Sneijder, Selcuk - Burak, Drogba.
Real Madrid: (Manager: Carlo Ancelotti) Casillas - Pepe, Carvajal, Ramos, Fernandez - Khedira, Modric, Bale, Isco - Ronaldo, Benzema.
