Sports Mole previews the Champions League encounter between Galatasaray and Braga.

Both of these sides lost their opening group matches of the Champions League, making victory in tomorrow night's encounter all important.

Hosting Galatasaray have a number of injury concerns for the visit of their Portuguese counterparts, with centre-back Tomas Ujfalusi and former Liverpool winger Albert Riera ruled out.

Attacking midfielder Hamit Altintop limped out of Gala's 2-0 win over Orduspor on Friday, although the ex-Real Madrid player is expected to be passed fit for the match.

Meanwhile, Braga coach Jose Peseiro has no injury worries ahead of his team's trip to Istanbul.

Gala have only lost one of their last nine European matches at home.
