This Tuesday, October 3, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. (Miami) Manchester United will face Galatasaray at the Old Trafford Stadium. The match is valid for Matchday 02 of the UEFA Champions League.
On the first day of the Champions League group stage, Manchester United faced Bayern Munich in an exciting match that ended with a 3-4 defeat for Erik ten Hag’s team. Unfortunately, last weekend, the Mancunians suffered their fourth defeat in the current Premier League season when they lost 0-1 against Crystal Palace in their own stadium. This start to the season represents United’s worst performance in the last 34 years, and they currently sit in tenth place in the English league table.
Galatasaray began their participation in the group stage of the Champions League by facing Copenhagen of Denmark in a match that ended in a 2-2 draw. After their performance in the European competition, the Turkish team continued their winning streak in the Turkish Super League, defeating Basaksehir, Ankaragucu (both 2-1) and Istanbulspor (1-0). With 19 points under their belt, Galatasaray is in second position in the league table, just two points behind the leader, Fenerbahçe.
