GALATASARAY

Galatasaray produced a masterclass in defence in the first leg of against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. They followed up that inspiring display with a 2-1 derby win against Besiktas on Tuesday in the Turkish top flight.

Muhammad Arkturkoglu was vibrant at the Nou Camp and he threatened the Barca rearguard a few times. Ultimately, he was denied a goal in the fixture, but he got his reward with a brace in the 2-1 win over Besiktas in the Turkish Super Liga.

Domenec Torrent’s men now go into the clash against Barcelona with just one defeat in their last seven competitive games. Even more impressive is the fact that they have only failed to find the back of the net in one of their last 16 games at home.

The Turkish outfit have not made it to the Quarterfinals of the Europa League, but they have had a good run and they can back themselves against a team they held on their own patch.

BARCELONA 

Barcelona put aside their disappointing goalless draw behind them to dismiss Osasuna 4-0 last weekend to continue their impressive in the La Liga.

Xavi Hernandez’s men were dominant from start to finish in that fixture, and their improvement in all areas of the pitch was evident for all to see.

Aside from their good form in the domestic competition, the Catalan outfit have not won all their last three matches away from home in all competitions.

The last time Barcelona visited Galatasaray, they earned a comfortable 2-0 Victory in the 2002/2003 Champions League group stage.

GALATASARAY VS BARCELONA BETTING PREDICTIONS 

Galatasaray are enjoying the new manager bounce under Domenec Torrent and their recent 2-1 over Besiktas is a pointer to that fact. However, Barcelona will be a difficult opponent, given their raft of attacking options.

Pierre-Emerick  Aubameyang and Feran Toress have been racking up the goals since joining  Barcelona and they are likely to cause problems for the Galatasaray backline.  Given Barca’s goal scoring record, we are backing them to score at least two total goals in this fixture. 

Konfambet has set the price for Over 1.5 Barcelona goals at 1.50. Find more betting markets and use the Konfambet bonus to try them out.

For our second tip, it will be hard to look beyond a Barcelona win in this fixture. The Catalans have been impressive in their last few outings and we expect a similar outcome and we are backing Barcelona to win at 1.35 on Cyberbet.
