Galatasaray measures its crisis before Madrid

The Turkish team, tenth in its League, receives Sivasspor. The Galatasaray crosses one of the usual fires among the great clubs of Istanbul.


Galatasaray is going through one of the usual fires among the big clubs in Istanbul but could not catch it at a worse time: it is being used with the hoses just four days after Real Madrid reaches Ottoman soil. Today, Cimbom has the opportunity to reduce the heat levels north of the Golden Horn by winning the Sivasspor, second in a qualifying table in which the next Madrid European rival is tenth. Far away, by sensations, from a team designed to win the Turkish Super League. But it is that between domestic matches and the Champions League, the lions of Istanbul have not won for a month. And one month, in Turkey and before such a fervent hobby, it is almost a life.

A state of crisis in which gasoline is also intermingled with extra-sports problems, including delays in payroll payments that have begun to be solved. Fatih Terim will have to manage today, again, without Falcao. The Tiger is caged because of persistent pain in the Achilles tendon that prevents him from exercising normally for ten years. At Sivasspor it seems that it will not arrive and it is doubt, right now, before Madrid.

Changes. Terim, an institution in Turkey, will move its initial eleven in this commitment to Sivasspor. The excéltico Emre Mor enters by another old acquaintance of the Spanish fans, Feghouli. The Swedish Jimmy Durmaz is projected as a starter instead of Ryan Babel, who has not started well and Ozbayrakli will be the two instead of Mariano, who is sanctioned. A renewed defense is expected with the Japanese Nagatomo and Congolese Luyindama playing home. At the head of everything, the buttress that supports the entire team, former Nzonzi.

For the Galata it is vital to recover under the shelter of the Türk Telekom stadium (the substitute for the famous Ali Sami Yen) because in Europe he is in a position as precarious as Madrid. He has the same points as the whites (one, from his draw in Bruges) but, unlike the Zidane team, the Turkish league is not being a balm for them ...
