Galatasaray vs. Copenhagen live Match

Turkish giants Galatasaray welcome Danish champions Copenhagen to RAMS Park for their opening group-stage fixture in the 2023-24 Champions League on Wednesday night.

The two teams are considered as the outsiders in Group A that also includes six-time European champions Bayern Munich and three-time winners Manchester United.

Following an unwanted three-year hiatus from the Champions League, Galatasaray are back in the big time this term after successfully navigating their way past FK Zalgiris, NK Olimpija Ljubljana and Molde in the qualifiers, beating the latter 5-3 on aggregate in the playoff round at the end of last month.

Okan Buruk‘s side have indeed made an impressive start to the new campaign and they are enjoying an unbeaten 10-game streak in all competitions, winning each of their last six games and scoring 15 goals in the process.

The reigning Turkish Super Lig champions regrouped after the international break and secured a 4-2 home victory over Samsunspor last weekend, with a brace from Kerem Akturkoglu and goals from Abdulkerim Bardakci and Mauro Icardi helping Gala move to within two points of leaders Fenerbahce.

Buruk, who played for Galatasaray when they won the UEFA Cup and UEFA Super Cup in 2000, has talked up the excitement that is building at the Turkish club ahead of their return to the Champions League. However, with both Bayern Munich and Man United joining them in Group A, the prospect of reaching the knockout rounds for the first time since 2013-14 seems a tall order.

The 2013-14 season also marks the only previous occasion when Galatasaray and Copenhagen met for home and away fixtures in the Champions League group stage, with the Turkish side running out 3-1 winners on home soil before losing 1-0 to their Danish counterparts on the road almost a month later.
