Galatasaray hosts Antep before key Braga clash

ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Galatasaray will open the 14th day of matches in the Spor Toto Super League with a game against Gaziantepspor tonight.

The defending champion leads the league with 25 points, two points ahead of Fenerbahçe and Medical Park Antalyaspor.

The match at the Türk Telekom Arena in Istanbul will be Galatasaray’s last test before the crucial Champions League game against Braga on Dec. 5.

Galatasaray and Cluj are playing for a place in the knockout rounds, while the Turkish champion will need to do better at Braga than the Romanians do against Manchester United.

Galatasaray suffered a 3-1 defeat to Karabükspor two weeks ago, which was its last domestic match before the clash against Manchester United.

Gaziantepspor battled internal problems during the week, with its players boycotting the team’s training on Nov. 27 on the grounds they haven’t been paid for eight months.
