Schalke 04 welcomes Galatasaray
Schalke 04 welcomes Galatasaray in a match from Group D of the Champions League. We will take a look at this clash at the Veltins-Arena in our vip soccer predictions today.
Schalke 04 are currently second in this group with 5 points and trailing on just 2 points behind the leader Porto. The German team won one of its matches in group so far – against Lokomotiv Moscow, and made two draws against Porto and Galatasaray. The Royal Blues are not doing very well in the Bundesliga since the start of the season, but right now they are in a pretty good position to chase a place in the 1/8-finals of the Champions League.
Two weeks ago Galatasaray and Schalke met in Istanbul, but the match between them ended with a 0-0 draw. The Turkish club tried to use the incredible atmosphere at the stands and the support of its passionate fans, but things didn’t work out in the way they wanted.
Galatasaray are currently 3rd in the group standings with 4 points won, but just one point behind Schalke 04. This means that the Turkish side could move to 2nd place, if they win in Gelsenkirchen. They can even top the group, depending on what happens between Porto and Lokomotiv Moscow in the other game in the group.
We can say that Schalke 04 are favourites, because of their home ground advantage. But if we look at the way the Royal Blues perform in the Bundesliga this season, things are not looking very bright for them. Schalke have a lot of problems in the German league at the moment, being in the lower part of the league standings.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Champions League clash between Schalke 04 and Galatasaray at the Veltins-Arena.
