Galatasaray – Real Madrid

Fabio Coentrao’s Real Madrid is going to clash with Galatasaray once again, in the second leg of the Champions League quarter finals.

In the first match, Galacticos won easily over Galatasaray, with 3-0. There are fans who are looking for sites where to get Soccer betting odds for this match. Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain scored for Real Madrid in the first match, and it’s expected from them to do it again in the second match too.

Most Real Madrid fans expect yet another easy win for The Galacticos, but this time, they’re going to Istanbul, where the Galatasaray fans are going to give all their best to make the Turkish champions win.

Line-ups for the match tomorrow should probably look like this:


Eboué • Kaya • Zan • Riera


Altıntop • Sneijder


Drogba • Bulut

Real Madrid:


Arbeloa • Varane • Pepe • Coentrão

Khedira • Modrić

María • Özil • Ronaldo


Although, his team practically ensured it’s pass in the semi-finals, Jose Mourinho will probably bring out his best team (players) available, just like Fatih Terim. This match is going to be very interesting and pleasing to watch, and noone would like to miss it.

Coentrao training with his teammates at UCLA

The 25 footballers in Los Angeles combined physical training and ball work; the second training session of the day will start at two o’ clock in the morning (17:00 local time)

Real Madrid began their training in the United States with a demanding session. Manager José Mourinho led a training session at the UCLA campus facilities in which both physical training and ball work played a leading role. Casillas, Ramos, Albiol, Arbeloa, Xabi Alonso, Cristiano Ronaldo, Coentrão, Pepe, Özil and Khedira, the ten Real Madrid players who reached the semi-finals of the European Championship in Ukraine and Poland, trained for the first time alongside their other squad members. The second training session of the day for the 25 footballers that have travelled to Los Angeles will begin at 02:00 (17:00 local time).

Real Madrid’s third pre-season in the United States under José Mourinho got off to a strong start. After the technical chat that is commonplace in the Portuguese’s training sessions, Real Madrid endured a demanding session in which both physical training and ball work played a leading role. Warm-ups and muscle strengthening exercises then led to teamwork with the ball.

Whilst Higuaín, Di María, Lass, Granero, Varane and Callejón trained with recovery expert Carlos Lalín, the remaining 16 footballers available to José Mourinho in the session were divided into four groups of four to play in several small matches on smaller sized pitches and then moved on to dribbling drills laid out on the grass. The goalkeepers Casillas, Adán and Jesús worked alongside goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro. (
