Ostersunds vs Galatasaray
2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 13th July 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Jamtktaft Arena.
Ostersunds’ players will have the opportunity to enjoy the occasion of meeting the Turkish giants on their Europa League debut this Thursday at their Jamtkraft Arena.
The quality is certainly on the visitors’ side, but the Swedish team is certainly in a much stronger competitive form being midway through the season in Allsvenskan.
English manager Graham Potter has been leading Ostersunds since 2011 and he must be proud on the job he has done first taking the team into the elite class of the Swedish football and now leading them into European adventures.
The team opened the new season in a promising fashion, but they have been on a poor run lately as they played two draws with AIK and Jonkopings Sodra in their latest Allsvenskan fixtures.
Galata are hoping to fix the poor impression they left in the last season as they were nowhere near Besiktas at the very top of the Super Lig standings.
The team signed decent acquisitions in the likes of Bafetimbi Gomis, Maicon and Younes Belhanda and it will be very interesting to see how the Croat manager Igor Tudor will put the new signings to bed in the new season.
The Lions did not concede a single goal in two friendlies with Hungarian Gyirmot and Diosgyor.
