Galatasaray vs Copenhagen Team News :
Okan Buruk has an abundance of riches to choose from within his squad with numerous big-name players pushing for a starting spot. He is expected to stick with the 4-2-3-1 formation which has served Galatasaray well so far this season. The excellent recent form of Muhammed Kerem Akturkoglu should see him start on the left-hand-side with Dries Mertens, Hakim Ziyech and Tete fighting for the two spots alongside him in attacking midfield with Mauro Icardi up top.
PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Muslera; Boey, Nelsson, Bardakci, Angelino; Torreira, Demirbay; Ziyech, Mertens, Akturkoglu; Icardi
After coming on as a substitute against Nordsjaelland this past weekend, striker Andreas Cornelius was forced off again and is likely to miss out entirely here. Else, both left-back Nicolai Boilesen and centre-back Davit Khocholava won’t feature due to their respective knee injuries. After scoring on Saturday, Orri Oskarsson may be asked to lead the line again in Turkey.
PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Grabara; Jelert, Vavro, Diks, Meling; Claesson, Falk, Goncalves; Bardghji, Oskarsson, Achouri
UNAVAILABLE: Boilesen (Injured), Khocholava (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Cornelius (Fitness)
