PSV vs GAL Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for PSV vs Galatasaray Champions League Qualifiers Live Score 22 July

Share

PSV vs GAL Dream11 Prediction: Arguably the most attractive tie of the Champions League second qualifying round on paper sees Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven go head-to-head with Galatasaray, who finished runners-up in the Turkish Super Lig last season as PSV did in the Eredivisie.

PSV vs GAL Dream11 Prediction

PSV Eindhoven have had a great pre-season campaign and are on an 11-game unbeaten streak stretching back to April. Roger Schmidt’s side should be confident going into Wednesday’s game. Galatasaray are unbeaten in their pre-season campaign as well. Fatih Terim’s side will be heading into Wednesday’s game on the back of a two-game winning streak and will know that a win at Eindhoven will set them up nicely for the second leg in Istanbul next week. With home advantage in their favour, three wins in their last four competitive matches vs Galatasaray and having not tasted defeat at Philips Stadion since back in January, Roger Schmidt’s men are to be narrowly favoured here.
