Preview:
Galatasaray and Benfica face at the Türk Telekom Arena, Istambul, in a match for the 3rd round of the Group C of the Champions League.
 
The only head to head between these two teams was in 2008, in a match for the Europa League, in which Galatasaray has beaten Benfica by 2-0, with goals by Asik and Karan.

Analysis of Galatasaray

The home team comes to this match after a 4-1 home win over Gençlerbirliği, with goals by Kisa, Chedjou, Oztekin and Yilmaz. In this competition they register a 2-2 away draw against Astana, so they are currently in the 3rd position of the group, with 1 point won.
 
In the last 10 matches for all competitions, coach Hamza Hamzaoglu’s team has scored an average of 1,8 goals and suffered 1,2 goals per match, so it’s clear that they have a few defensive problems. Therefore, 60% of these matches have ended with Over 2 goals.
 
The best period of the Turkish team is in the last 45’ of the match, in which they have scored 13 goals and suffered 5. Finally, it’s worth noticing that their worst period is between minutes 16’ and 30’, in which they have suffered 4 goals.

Confirmed Lineup: F. Muslera, A. Chedjou, S. Sarıoğlu, H. Balta, L. Carole, B. Kısa, Y. Öztekin, W. Sneijder, S. İnan, U. Bulut, L. Podolski.
Coach: J. Olde Riekerink.

Analysis of Benfica

The away team comes to this match after a 1-2 away win over Vianense, in a match for the Portuguese Cup, with goals by Carcela and Jardel. In this European competition they have beaten Atlético de Madrid in an away match by 2-1, so they are currently in the 1st position of the group, with 6 points won, after 2 wins in 2 rounds.
 
In the last 10 matches for all competitions, the Portuguese team has scored an average of 2,2 goals and suffered 0,7 goals per match. As their opponent, 60% of these matches have ended with Over 2 goals.
 
The best period of coach Rui Vitória’s team is the last 30’ of the match, in which they have scored 11 goals and conceded only 2. On the contrary, their worst period is between minutes 16’ and 30’, in which they have suffered 2 goals and scored only once.

Confirmed Lineup: Júlio César, Jardel, Sílvio, Luisão, Eliseu, André Almeida, N. Gaitán, A. Samaris, R. Jiménez, Jonas, Goncalo Guedes.
Coach: Rui Vitória.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that both teams will score at least one goal. We believe Galatasaray will try to dominate the match and have more initiative, creating the best goal opportunities to win the points they need. On the other hand, Benfica has the ability to take advantage of any spaces allowed by the home team defence, so they are also likely to score.
