Galatasaray v Benfica: Confirmed Starting Line Ups – Former Arsenal striker will start

Galatasaray take on Benfica at the Türk Telekom Arena stadium hoping for their first Champions League group stage win.

The Lions currently have one point from two games after losing against Atletico Madrid in Istanbul and drawing to Astana in Kazakhstan.

Galatasaray boss Hamza Hamzaoğlu took an unusual decision in disclosing his starting XI a day in advance of the important clash.

Former Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski will start upfront alongside Umut Bulut but Burak Yılmaz is expected to feature at some stage against the Portuguese giants.

Lions captain Selçuk İnan will start and is in high spirits after scoring the last minute goal that took Turkey to Euro 2016 last week.
