EUROPE: Champions League – Group Stage – Round 2

  • Galatasaray and FC Porto meet for the first time in a competitive match as the home side look to qualify. Porto controlled their opening Champions League (CL) game against Schalke.
  • Porto’s recent home record in European football is not pretty winning just four of their last 11 fixtures (W4, D2, L5). It’s not since 2006/07 that Porto have failed to win either of their opening two matches.
  • The hosts have lost just one European match against Turkish opposition in the past (W6, D3, L1).
  • Galatasaray lead Group D after dismantling outsiders Lokomotiv Moscow 3-0 at home. Their biggest winning margin in a continental home match.
  • The Turkish club’s overall record in five fixtures against Portuguese teams stands at W3, L2. However, they have travelled horrendously as far as continental fixtures are concerned.
  • Players to watch:

Felipe (Porto) has been in superb form in defence, passing at 86.1% and winning an average             of 4.2 aerials per league game.

  • Eren Derdiyok has scored three goals in his last six league appearances – he also grabbed a goal in Galatasaray’s win over Lokomotiv.
  • Stat attack:

Porto have failed to win in their last three fixtures against Turkish opposition (D2, L1).

  • Galatasaray have not led at half-time in any of their three continental fixtures in Portugal.
  • Five of Galatasaray’s last six competitive fixtures have produced three or more goals.
