Galatasaray to Win

Randers have made a fine start to their domestic campaign in Denmark, though the step up in class required to compete on the continent could prove too much of a jump for the Hestene this week. The only victories Randers have secured in the Europa League since 2010 came against Andorra minnows Saint Julia six years ago and a higher-calibre and more streetwise Galatasaray outfit should be too strong for their hosts.

Both Teams to Score

Galatasaray’s poor defensive showing in the early weeks of the new campaign hint that a consolation goal might be on offer for Randers however. The Turkish giants have conceded in 100% of their four European fixtures this term, indeed, BTTS landed in each of the same assignments. That record suggests that the same market could reap dividends again on Thursday.

Mbaye Diagne

Following a disappointing season on loan with WBA in England last term, Mbaye Diagne is back at parent club Galatasaray in 2021/22 where the Senegalese striker has been making a positive early impression. The 29-year-old has notched three times in his last four appearances and with his confidence flowing, he looks a great bet in the anytime goalscorer market this week.

Randers vs Galatasaray: Match Preview

Randers

Randers have come out of the blocks quickly in their homeland and Thomas Thomasberg’s men sit at the summit of the Danish Superliga ahead of their test against Galatasaray on Thursday. The Hestene qualified for the preliminary phase of the Europa League thanks to their cup triumph last term, though they look ill-equipped to rub shoulders with some of their continental counterparts.

Galatasaray

Galatasaray’s squad is littered with high-profile veterans, though the experience in their ranks counted for little when Gala were decimated by PSV in the qualifying stage of the Champions League. The Lions have roared back to form since their double-legged defeat to PSV however, and having hit six goals in their last two matches, confidence should be on the rise.
