Benfica v Galatasaray: Expected Starting Line Up – Wesley Sneijder set to start


Galatasaray take on Benfica in Lisbon hoping to overtake the Portuguese giants in Group C.

The Lions beat Benfica 2-1 in Istanbul to record their first win of the group stages and become the first side to beat the Portuguese side in Europe this season.

Galatasaray could be without Carole at left-back which could force left winger Olcan Adın to start as a full-back. Jose Rodriguez is also a doubt in midfield but there are no other missing players.

Clesio, Eduardo Salvio (knee), Nelson Semedo (knee) and Ljubomir Fejsa (foot) are all out injured while Andreas Samaris misses out due to suspension.
