Galatasaray vs Molde preview: Team news, recent form, and possible lineups

Read the latest information on both teams ahead of their upcoming duel here, including our predicted Galatasaray vs Molde lineups:

Galatasaray

Galatasaray have a star-studded squad which is under great deal of pressure to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League after a couple of seasons in the wilderness. To their credit, they are pretty close to achieving this after their first-leg win over Molde, so all they need is to avoid a loss against the Norwegians at home. Wilfred Zaha is still recovering from a foot issue and will likely miss this match too.

Galatasaray predicted lineup:

Muslera – Boey, Bayram, Nelsson, Angelino – Oliveira, Torreira – Mertens, Ziyech, Akturkoglu – Icardi

Molde

Molde come into the game knowing that they are big underdogs for the fixture, especially after they already lost to Galatasaray at home in the first leg. Still, the hope remains that Molde can reach the group stages of the Champions League for the first time since the 1999-00 season, but they need to find a way to win in Istanbul.

Molde predicted lineup:

Karlstrom – Ellingsen, Bjornbak, Haugan – Knudtzon, Mannsverk, Breivik, Eriksen, Haugen – Brynhildsen, Eikrem

Starting lineups:

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to watch: Mauro Icardi

Mauro Icardi has produced a string of excellent performances since his transfer to the Turkish team and he is our player to watch in this match, especially after his performance in the first leg.

After all, the 30-year-old forward managed to score a goal and assist for another in the first duel against Molde, so the Norwegian team will have to keep a close eye on him in this match.
