It’s October and Real Madrid play their first must-win game of the season. While Los Blancos could still advance to the next round of the Champions League even if they lose against Galatasaray tonight, their odds wouldn’t be all that great.
Madrid have been very poor in the European competition this season. Los Blancos were dominated by PSG in the opening game of this edition of the Champions League and could only rescue a home 2-2 draw against Brugge in the second game.
They also need to bounce back from their disappointing 1-0 loss against the newly promoted Mallorca team this past Saturday and many reports suggest that Zidane’s future as Real’s coach could be on the line if Madrid can’t turn things around against Galatasaray.
Istambul’s Ali Sami Yen will surely be a very tough atmosphere for Real Madrid to play in, but Los Blancos have the experience and quality needed to not only survive the game but to dominate as well.
Will they show up? Don’t miss it.
