The Manchester United team will challenge the Galatasaray team in a 2e ronde UEFA Champions League in Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester on Tuesday, October 03, 2023. For streaming coverage of Man Utd vs Galatasaray, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Man Utd will face Galatasaray in the second match of Group G of the Champions League on Tuesday 3 October at Old Trafford local time. This is a game that will decide the fate of coach Ten Hag, who is under pressure to be sacked after a run of poor results from the Red Devils.
Man Utd is experiencing a serious crisis after losing four in a row in the last six matches in all competitions. The team coached by Dutch coach Ten Hag is under heavy criticism due to weak performances and a squad lacking players.
In the last match, Man Utd lost 0-1 to Crystal Palace in the Premier League, thus dropping to 12th position in the standings. In the Champions League, Man Utd also lost 1-2 to RB Leipzig in the first match.
However, Man United does not have much choice regarding the squad as it has been heavily impacted by injuries. Many main pillars such as Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, Kobbie Mainoo and Amad Diallo cannot play. Jadon Sancho is also absent due to internal punishment. Man United can only hope for the return of Antony and Sergio Reguilon to strengthen the front and back lines.
Galatasaray, on the other hand, was very confident when they arrived as guests in Manchester. Coach Fatih Terim’s team is leading the Turkish domestic league with 19 points from seven matches. They also qualified from the Champions League qualifying round convincingly.
Galatasaray’s attack line is playing very effectively, scoring goals in 10 consecutive matches. Mauro Icardi is the leader of the goalscoring list with 10 goals from the last 12 matches. He will be supported by Dries Mertens and Kerem Akturkoglu on both wings.
Galatasaray only had one unfortunate absence, namely Kazimcan Karatas. Hakim Ziyech also may not have time to recover from injury to play. However, the visitors still have a strong squad with many talented stars such as Icardi, Zaha or Ndombélé. They will not be easily intimidated by Man United, but will actively attack and look for goals.
With superiority in terms of performance and squad, Galatasaray can completely surprise the Red Devils. On the contrary, this is the last chance for coach Ten Hag to save the situation in the Champions League. Can he help Man United achieve victory to regain the trust of the fans? Or will Galatasaray continue their unbeaten and surprising run at Old Trafford?
