Real Madrid v Galatasaray - 3rd April

Postby Hams » Thu Mar 28, 2013 2:54 pm

Galatasaray are 4 points clear at the top in Turkey at the moment and on course to win the Super Lig.
Fathi Terim's side may have Sneijder and Drogba in their ranks now and former Gunner Emanuele Eboue
however Turkish striker and goal machine Yilmaz should be the one to watch in this clash in Istanbul.

Real Madrid have had a poor season in La Liga and are 13 points behind great rivals Barcelona but Jose
Mourinho's men have reached the Spanish cup final which is unfairly being played at the Bernabeu and not a neutral venue.
Karim Benzima may not take part after being booed by the French public during France's 1-0 home defeat to Spain.

Do you have any comments or predictions?

Did you know that Galatasaray have never won in Spain in the Champions League (two draws, six defeats, five goals for, 17 against).

Any comments or predictions?

poor game from real. mourinho will probably be happy coz he only cares about the result not entertaining the fans. a few mistakes from galatasaray and madrid pounced. nothing special from them though

watching the highlights it looks like eboue is the main villain here. blamed for those goals and didnt score from the dead ball situation after being perfectly set up by drogba. i never fully realized there are so many familiar faces in this galatasarai side :lol:

Sergio Ramos was very unlucky to be booked near the end as Eboue clearly dived but the Spaniard will now miss the 2nd leg.

ramos was booked for kicking the ball away and he was always looking to get booked so he could wipe his slate clean for the semis

Loool dirty Real and Mourinho :D

As expected though, Real are just way too good, Gala seems to be in another level, perhaps they just werent able to taise their game. Good players but all not at their best anymore and team work were poor, defense was a joke as well....comfortable for Real....

3-0 is way too much to make the return leg uninteresting. if galatasaray at least had managed to scrape a goal it would retain some tense. but as it stands, it's all over.

Is Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim right to say that the referee lacked courage during the match at the Bernabeu

The Turks claim that Ramos stepped on Yilmaz when the striker was booked for diving or is it all just sour grapes at losing?

Cant exactly remember, but it was a clear penalty, Real got away with it, the ref booked him for diving which was a joke. The refs were awful....and hopefully not bought by certain clubs :D

Come on, Real Madrid. Good luck to them.
They are a wonderful football club, and they knocked out Man U fair and square, and now people are seeing that the big fuss about the sending off were just an excuse for Sir Alex Ferguson to sulk, and only be punished with a fine which he wouldn't notice because he's such a rich socialist, who has failed so dismally as a football manager in the competition that means most.

The ref got it wrong. Ylmaz didn't dive, Ramos had mistimed his tackle and stepped on his foot. Too bad, after denying Gala with a chance to net an away goal, Ylmaz will also miss the return leg at Turkey because of accumulated yellow cards. I hope he'll be cleared to play in the 2nd leg.
