Arsenal had to outplay Besiktas to be able to get a position in Group D of Champions League. Now they have another Turkish assignment on the way. Anfield Road will be full of fans who expect a great win at Galatasaray this Wednesday.
Arsene Wenger has a lot of work to do, as his latest results haven’t been that good. Arsenal’s first match in the group stage was a 2-0 loss at Borussia Dortmund. Debuchy and Sanogo remain sidelined. Other players are doubts for Wednesday’s encounter, like Monreal, Flamini and Walcott. Mertesacker, Özil, and Alexis Sánchez will share the responsibility of leading the squad to their first win in the tournament.
The long trip from Turkey might be an extra opponent in Galatasaray’s way. Cesare Prandelli has the complete team in his hands. Wesley Sneijder is the playmaker and has the task of serving Burak Yilmaz to score. Both require a special man-to-man marking. Felipe Melo will try to stop the opponent’s powerful attack.
As the Turkish side got their last victory in London a long time ago, the Gunners raise as favorites for this match. In addition, Borussia and Dortmund are the likely team that will qualify for playoffs, but Galatasaray still has time to surprise and make a good campaign.
Our prediction is an Arsenal 3-1 win – Best odds at Bet365.
