Galatasaray to face L. Moskva, Porto, Schalke in UEFA Champions League group stage

Galatasaray have drawn a favourable group in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

The Lions managed to avoid the big guns and were drawn alongside Lokomotiv Moscow, FC Porto and Schalke 04.

Galatasaray’s first game is up against Lokomotiv Moscow at the Turk Telekom Stadium in late September.

Galatasaray have until September 1 to bolster their squad for the Champions League.

The Istanbul Giants sold their star striker Bafatemi Gomis last week and are yet to replace the France international.

Galatasaray are also on the hunt for a new defender after failing to replace Jason Denayer.
