Following the 4-1 unexpected defeat suffered from the hands of Borussia Dortmund at the ICC 2016 competition in Beijing, Manchester United lock to bounce back with a win when they lock horns with the Turkish giants Galastaray on Saturday.

Jose’s men were to bout with Pep boys in Beijing on Monday, but to everyone’s disappointment the game was called off due to an unfavorable weather. Manchester United have been involved in 2 pre-season games so far, ensuring victory in their first one with Wigan, and falling to a heavy defeat in the second game with Dortmund.

Galatasaray were involved in three friendlies in the current pre-season, and remain unbeaten with 3 wins and a draw. Their first involvement was in the Uhren Cup in Switzerland, where a 3-0 win against FC Zurich and a 1-1 stalemate against Young Boys earned them the trophy. This was followed by a 3-1 win against AGF Aarhaus and then will be heading with full confidence against Manchester United.

Manchester United vs Galastaray: Head To Head Statistics

Their latest meeting was during the group stages of 2012/13 UEFA Champions League. Galatasaray had the best laugh the last time when these two sides met earning a 1-0 win at home. Manchester United were victorious when the sides met at Old Trafford for the first leg clash.

However, the Red Devils can boast of 2 victories in this 6 encounters compared to Galatasaray’s 1, while 4 matches ending in stalemates.

Manchester United vs Galastaray: Prediction

Galatasaray have been enjoying a balance pre-season atmosphere, winning the Uhren Pre Season competition that took place in Switzerland. United’s poor show in Beijing will be drive the lads to produce an inspired performance in this encounter, as each player will be gunning for the cool spot of their manager.

It will be an evenly poised clash, and we can expect at least over 3 goals from this encounter. I will be backing on the amount of goals rather than picking a winner straight out, considering the fitness levels of teams involved and the number of substitutions which could break the flow in the second half.

Manchester United vs Galastaray: Tips

  1. Over 2.5 goals.
  2. Both Teams to Score.
