Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Galatasaray play host to Real Madrid at their Turk Telekom Stadyumu in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Tuesday’s program. Both sides have yet to record a win in the 2019/2020 Champions League group stages, meaning that they are likely to go for a win in their third group game. Galatasaray have yet to find the net in the process and that is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered.
Los Blancos came from two goals behind to share the spoils with Club Brugge at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but Real Madrid fans are hungry for more success. Eden Hazard has been showing signs of improvement of late and we predict that the big-money signing is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Luka Modric and Co. are eager to get back on course in the elite competition.
Highlighted Player (Christian Luyindama):
Christian Luyindama is a Congolese footballer who plays for Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Lig. Luyindama played for the likes of DCMP and Sanga Balende before starting his senior career at TP Mazembe.
The DR Congo international then moved to Belgian side Standard Liege, scoring 8 goals in 58 appearances for the club in the national championship. In 2019 he decided to take a step forward in his career as he signed a loan deal with Galatasaray. Luyindama, who was born in Kinshasa on January 8, 1994, eventually signed a permanent deal with the Turkish outfit.
Speaking of his international career, the 191-cm tall centre-back made his Congo DR debut in a 2-0 win over Botswana on June 5, 2017. Christian Luyindama represented his country at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, making three appearances for the Leopards at the showpiece tournament in Egypt.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 13 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world.
Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
