One of the games I'm most looking forward to is the meeting of Galatasaray and Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night. Galatasaray have a fantastic squad similar to Atletico Madrid in a way and both play attacking passing football. Galatasaray made some shrewd signings over the last couple of season and the addition of Podolski from Arsenal was a terrific move. The German international has scored twice in four games and looks like he will work with this offence, Wesley Sneijder is the key that makes the offence work but with proper wingers and a couple of quality finishers like Bulut, Yilmaz and Podolski should give Galatasaray a chance to progress from this group.
Atletico Madrid have put together an excellent squad capable of competing both domestically and in Europe. Diego Simeone is getting the best out of Fernando Torres and with Griezmann, Vietto and Martinez there are goals in this side. At the weekend Atletico took the lead against Barcelona but again succumbed to a late Lionel Messi goal. Atletico have had a good start to the season and look strong, they play an attractive brand of football and are very tough to break down defensively. Simeone appears to be able to get the absolute best out of his side and Ifully expect Atletico to be going all out to win this group, which for me would appear to be one of the weaker groups.
I like the overs here. I think Galatasaray will give this a good go tonight and while Atletico are a tough team to break down this game should be open with the way both teams like to play the ball on the ground. I am taking overs in what should be a good game in a really hostile atmosphere. Take the overs and tune in for this one, I have a feeling we are going to see alot of goals and a great game.
