Barcelona Preview – Barca too strong for the Turks?

Barcelona are without doubt the biggest club in the Europa League right now, and Xavi’s men are the favourites to lift the trophy before a ball has been kicked in the Round of 16 stage. At the time of writing, Blaugrana are priced at 11/4 to win the 2021-22 Europa League.

After being dumped out of the UEFA Champions League at the group stage, Barcelona found themselves relegated to the Europa League knockout play-offs. They met Napoli over two legs, beating the Italians 5-3 on aggregate.

Barcelona to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1513 GMT, Wednesday 9 March)

Barcelona will back themselves to get the job done over two legs, especially as the first game is taking place on their own patch. Xavi’s side should take a handy advantage to Istanbul, and the home win is priced at just 1/7.

Galatasaray Preview – Can the Turkish outfit cause a big upset?

Domenec Torrent’s Galatasaray head to Spain in poor form. They have picked up just one win from their last eight league and cup games, losing five times along the way. Last time out, the 2020-21 Super Lig runners-up were beaten at Konyaspor.

To their credit, Galatasaray did a fine job in the Europa League group stage. The Turkish giants beat the likes of Lazio, Marseille and Lokomotiv Moscow to top spot to go through to the last 16 as group winners.
