Preview: Copenhagen vs. Galatasaray

Sports Mole previews the Champions League Group B meeting between FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray in Denmark.

Galatasaray will be hoping to improve their chances of qualifying from Champions League Group B with victory over bottom side Copenhagen at Parken on Tuesday.

The Turkish outfit could open up a five-point gap on Juventus, their nearest rivals to finish as runners-up to Real Madrid, with victory in Denmark, if the Old Lady lose to Los Blancos.

Manager Roberto Mancini is able to call upon the services of two former winners of the competition, Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba, who has netted in his last three outings.

The Ivorian striker is likely to be partnered by Buruk Yilmaz, who made a real name for himself with eight goals in nine Champions League appearances last season.

Gala have won their previous four matches in all competitions, but their opponents' form has been very inconsistent of late, having recorded three victories and as many defeats in their last seven games.

Copenhagen are likely to include former Premier League trio, experienced defender Olof Mellberg, captain Lars Jacobson and ex-Bolton Wanderers forward Daniel Braaten, in their starting XI.
