Bayern Munich vs Galatasaray score prediction
Bayern Munich produced the most impressive performance under Tuchel on Saturday, as they beat Borussia Dortmund at home only days after being humiliated in the DFB-Pokal.
Galatasaray forced Bayern into a reaction in the reverse match, however. In a 3-1 win that was not convincing, the Germans tried to keep the Turkish giants at bay and then attacked them from behind.
The dynamic at the Allianz should be very different on Wednesday. Galatasaray has a number of big-name players and they have done well in Turkey, but it’s not enough to win the match at Munich.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the score remained unchanged from Istanbul.
