Gheorghe Hagi says that Real Madrid are "favourites" against Galatarasay in their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Gheorghe Hagi has backed Real Madrid to defeat Galatasaray and progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League this season.

The Spanish club will host the Turkish side in the first leg of their quarter-final tie at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

"Madrid are the favourites, no doubt," Football Espana quotes him as saying.

"They are in a good run of form, are very strong and will fight to win the Champions League.
