Could Galatasaray avoid a 90 minute elimination?

Galatasaray have improved a lot recently; they lost just one of their last seven games, with three wins and three draws. This is interesting considering Galatasaray had lost six consecutive games prior to that; they’ll be going up against a Barcelona side that has no losses in 10 games. As a matter of fact, Barcelona won seven of those 10 games, including five of their last six games; however, they couldn’t score against Galatasaray at the Camp Nou. We’re going for value here, and considering Galatasaray’s newfound form; we believe they can hold off the Catalans for at least 90 more minutes.

Both teams will score

Barcelona kept clean sheets in their last two games; however, they did concede in six of seven games prior to that. Conversely, the Catalan giants have not had much trouble finding the net; they scored in 18 of their last 19 games in all competitions. Both teams scored in six of Barcelona’s last nine games. In like manner, Galatasaray scored in nine of their last 11 games; they kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 games. Both teams scored in nine of Galatasaray’s last 11 games; and for this reason, we believe that both teams will find the net.

Goals, goals, goals

Although the reverse fixture of this tie was goalless, these are two high-scoring teams. Barcelona scored 18 goals in their last six games; that’s three goals per game on average. It’s worth noting that five of those six games went over 2.5, with four of those games going over 3.5. Similarly, Galatasaray have had their fair share of high-scoring games; three of their last five games went over 2.5, with just over three goals scored on average in those five games. On that note, we should expect some goals in this match.
