Galatasaray host Lazio at the Turk Telekom Arena in their Europa League Round of 32 first-leg tie.

The Lions are having a nightmare season and have already dropped out of the title race. Galatasaray will be taking the game tonight seriously considering it is the only competition along with the Turkish Cup they have a chance of winning.

Galatasaray boss Mustafa Denizli has decided to start with a 4-3-3 with Lukas Podolski upfront filling in for the injured Sinan Gumus. Wesley Sneijder will be playing on the left with Sabri on the right.

The midfield will be comprised of Selcuk Inan, Ryan Donk and surprisingly centre-back Chejdou.

Galatasaray are not in the best of form however, they are unbeaten in their last 14 homes games.
