A tough match has arrived … Galatasaray, marked in the UEFA Europa League Round 16, will face Spanish giant Barcelona today. We hope that the representative will write a new epic and return to Turkey with a favorable score in the match starting at 23.00 CEST at Camp Nou. The yellow-red team, which fell short of expectations in this season’s Super League and said goodbye to the championship race very quickly, has a different image in Europe. After losing from the Champions League, he was undefeated in 10 games (5D / 5D). In addition, Symbom, who emerged as the undefeated leader of his group, named his last 16 rounds directly. Barcelona and Xavi are the biggest favorites of today’s match … but Galatasaray’s history is full of successful results in such a tough match … in fact, the Spanish team wins one out of eight matches. 2 Successful draw. I played before. Of these results, the 2-2 draw on the road on December 5, 2001 is noteworthy. Under the command of Mircea Lucescu, Galatasaray started the match like a storm at Camp Nou, leading 2-0 with Umitkaran and Fleurkin. In the second half, Capone and Hakan Unsal won the red card, but the Yellow and Red teams managed to finish the match 2-2. Today, we expect the representative to show his heart and return from Spain with a new victory.
