9th Dec 2014 | Champions League

Hell Hath No Fury

Galatasaray once greeted English visitors with 'Welcome to Hell' but now they just want to save face after a poor European campaign.

When Arsenal head to Istanbul on Tuesday there’s nothing but pride at stake and that makes the most likely result the one at the biggest price - a draw at 13/5 (Bet365).

Galatasaray have had a bleak Champions League campaign and are now guaranteed to finish bottom of Group D having only collected one point. In contrast, the Gunners are assured of knockout football but Arsene Wenger can’t truly believe that Dortmund will surrender top spot by losing at home to Anderlecht, so realistically they have second place already assured.

The Londoners will field a weakened side as a result but their boss can’t afford anymore humbling defeats even when the stakes are low. Equally, the Turks are proud people and they will want to go out with their heads held high. A draw probably ticks the box for both managers.
