This Wednesday, November 8, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. (Miami) Bayern Munich will face Galatasaray at the Allianz Arena Stadium. The match is valid for Matchday 04 of the UEFA Champions League.
After their surprising elimination in the German Cup against the modest Saarbrücken, Bayern Munich had an impressive performance by crushing their most important rival in the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund, with a score of 4-0. After three rounds in the Champions League, Bayern Munich have accumulated 9 points, and a victory in the next match would ensure them a place in the Champions League playoffs, even having the opportunity to reach first place if Manchester United loses points in its match against the Danish team. In these three Champions League games, Bayern Munich has scored a total of 9 goals, which means an average of three goals per game. In Wednesday’s match, Bayern Munich will be without Marusic, Bühmann and De Ligt.
The only defeat that Galatasaray has suffered so far this season was against Bayern Munich. However, after that setback, Galatasaray managed to beat Rizespor and Kasimpasa in the Turkish Super League. In the Turkish league standings, the team is in the leading position, surpassing its closest rival, Fenerbahçe, by one point. In the Champions League group table, the Turks occupy second place with 4 points, which puts them five points behind Bayern Munich and one point ahead of Manchester United. For Wednesday’s match, Galatasaray will be without Ndombele, who is recovering from a muscle injury.
