Champions League – group stage
start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
Champions League group G doesn’t have a favorite like Barcelona or
Manchester United if we compare it with other quartets. All four
teams – the champions of France, Portugal and Turkey and also the
vice-champion of Germany have practically equal chances to get into
the first round of play-off.
the only leader of the quartet is Beşiktaş, Turkey. But we are not
sure that the champion of Turkey will be able to save its position
even in case of draw according to the results of the second round.
Turkey (the head coach Şenol Güneş)
the beginning of the group tournament the black eagles from Istanbul
have suddenly won over two-time champion of Europe (1:3) in Porto.
The balls were scored by Talisca, Cenk Tosun, Ryan Guno Babel.
during the last round of the national Super League the team of Şenol
Güneş had lost to weaker Fenerbahçe (1:2). This match because of
its emotional overload had 5 sending-offs: two had Fener (Luís Neto
and İsmail Köybaşı) and three Beşiktaş (Ricardo Quaresma, Atiba
Hutchinson and Oğuzhan Özyakup).
Güneş’s bid (4-2-3-1):
– Medel, Pepe, Tošić, Erkin – Hutchinson, Özyakup –
Quaresma, Taliska, Negredo – Tosun;
Germany (the head coach Ralph Hasenhüttl)
week ago during the home meeting against Borussia Mönchengladbach
the vice-champion of Germany was lacking its best central midfielder
Naby Keïta because of sending-off. But, despite this fact, during
the last round Leipzig had won over Eintracht Frankfurt (2:1) and is
now getting ready to forthcoming battle.
Hasenhüttl’s bid (4-4-2):
– Bernardo, Orban, Upamecano, Halstenberg – Sabitzer, Ilsanker,
Keïta, Forsberg – Augustin, Werner;
quotations of the main outcomes are rather interesting:
– 3.20, draw – 3.50, Leipzig – 2.15;
today the champion of Turkey by its game level is not worse than the
vice-champion of Germany, especially on its arena. It is clear that
we are waiting for an interesting meeting.
