Galatasaray take on Astana at the Türk Telekom Arena in their final Champions League group stage game needing just a point to book a place in the Europa League Round of 32.

The Lions cannot book a place in the Champions League Last 16 but Astana who are just one point behind Galatasaray could still qualify for the Europa League with a win.

Galatasaray will not be able to call on on-loan Manchester City defender Jason Denayer for the game tonight due to injury.

Denayer had established himself as a key member of the Lions team and played regular league and Champions League football as a full-back and centre-back before getting injured.

The 20-year-old defender has found himself played in an unorthodox role as a right-back but has managed to keep Galatasaray veteran full-back Sabri Sarıoğlu out of the team.

Denayer has had no trouble settling into life in Turkey in fact he has already developed a taste for one of the most popular drinks in the country; tea or çay (chai) as the locals call it.
