PSV vs Galatasaray, CL QR, 21.07.2021
After finishing as runners-up in their respective domestic leagues last season, Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven and Turkish club Galatasaray lock horns at the Philips Stadion Stadium on Wednesday, in the second qualifying stage of this season’s Champions League.

After a 3-year hiatus, PSV are looking to make it back to the big stage once again. The 1988 European champions made it to the group stage on three occasions between 2015 and 2018 but have not been back at Europe’s high table since. Instead, they have been reduced to the lower-tier Europa League lately, but they will be out to turn that tide this time.
The Dutch giants were given a bye in the previous round and are making a first return to the Champions since falling to Basel in the qualifying stage during the 2019/20 season.
Although pre-season friendlies don’t mean a lot, PSV have looked good coming into this game. Roger Schmidt will be hoping his charges will carry some of that momentum in this match.
Like their hosts, Galatasaray have also been in the freezer as far as this competition is concerned with their last piece of the action in the group stage being back in 2019 when they were unfortunate to land in a group with heavyweights PSG and Real Madrid and as expected, failed to make the last-16.
Galatasaray ended the season on a six-game winning streak, agonizingly finishing second to bitter rivals Besiktas on goal difference after they were tied on points.
They have also had a couple of friendly wins although their last scheduled friendly with Greek club Olympiakos had to be cancelled under a cloud of controversy over COVID testing protocols.
