Manchester UTD v Galatasaray Betting Preview
Manchester UTD are already in desperate need of a win in Champions League as they fell to a 4-3 loss against Bayern Munich away in Germany in Matchday 1. Erik Ten Hag's men enter this clash on the back of a disappointing display at home to Crystal Palace last time out, which saw United beaten 1-0. That was their third league defeat in the last 4 outings, with the only victory coming at Burnley (a narrow 0-1 win). As a result, the Red Devils are languishing in the 10th position in the Premier League, already 9 points behind table toppers Manchester City.
Galatasaray will also try to get a good result in England after a last-minute 2-2 draw against Copenhagen in Istanbul. Anyway, the Turkish club are enjoying a good domestic run having won 6 league matches on the spin. They are 2nd in the standings, two points shy of Fenerbach who have a 100% winning record so far. Defense remains a concern as Okan Buruk's men have failed to keep a clean sheet in six of their last eight matches in all competitions.
Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Manchester UTD (4-2-3-1): Bayindir; Dalot, Varane, Lindelof, Amrabat; McTominay, Casemiro; Mount, B.Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
The Red Devils are suffering from an injury crisis with Lisandro Martinez the latest to be sidelined for an extended period. The former Ajax CB joins Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Aaron Wan Bissaka and Sergio Reguilon on the sideline. As a result, Sofyane Amrabat is likely to continue at left back. New goalkeeper Altay Bayindir will make his debut, replacing Andrè Onana. Up front, Jadon Sancho remains exiled from first-team action while Antony has returned to training and should be available, at least for the bench. Rasmus Hojlund will lead the line, supported by Bruno Fernandes, Mason Mount and Marcus Rashford.
Galatasaray (4-2-3-1): Muslera; Boey, Sanchez, Bardakci, Angelino; Torreira, Demirbay; Zaha, Mertens, Akturkoglu; Icardi
As for the visitors, ex Premier League players Wilfried Zaha and Davinson Sanchez are expected to start while Hakim Ziyech is a a major doubt. The winger will form an interesting trio of offensive midfielders alongside Dries Mertens and Kerem Akturkoglu, behind the central striker Maro Icardi. The likes of Lucas Torreira and Kerem Demiraby will anchor the midfield while former Man City left-back Angelino will feature from the off in a four-man backline.
Our Manchester UTD v Galatasaray Predictions
Manchester UTD are clearly struggling as they have already five defeats in their nine outing since the start of the season.
On the other side, the Istanbul giants are unbeaten in their last 20 matches in all competitions and look capable to inflict more misery for the Red Devils.
With both teams conceding plenty of goals and chances, the Both Teams To Score option is our main pick.
As for the match result, we won't be surprised to see Galatasary taking points at Old Trafford. Anyway, we back "Galatasaray +2" in the European Handicap market.
2-2 is our recommended bet as Correct Score while "Amrabat to commit 2+ fouls" look a value bet.
