Preview: Galatasaray vs. Juventus

Sports Mole looks ahead to the hugely important final Champions League group game between Galatasaray and Juventus on Tuesday night.

One of the most important games of the sixth and final matchday of the Champions League group stage takes place in Istanbul on Tuesday night when Galatasaray host Juventus.

Both sides know that victory will guarantee second spot in Group B and a place in the last 16 of the competition, with Real Madrid already guaranteed to finish top no matter what they do in Copenhagen.

Gala have to win and end Juve's nine-game unbeaten run to progress, while Antonio Conte's side will still scrape through with a draw even if Copenhagen beat Madrid as they have the better head-to-head record.

Uruguayan goalkeeper Fernando Muslera should be available for Gala after making his return from a broken toe against Elazigspor on Friday night and helping the Turkish club keep their first clean sheet in 14 games.

Wesley Sneijder sat out that match but he should be fit to start tomorrow night, with both sides expected to field 3-5-2 formations.

Visitors Juventus should line up with Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente in attack as both were rested for the victory at Bologna on Friday and Mirko Vucinic picked up an injury.

In the reverse fixture on matchday two, the pair played out a thrilling 2-2 draw in Turin that finished with a goal for each side in the final five minutes.
