How to watch and follow Galatasaray v United
Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League hopes could rest on what happens at Rams Park in Istanbul on Wednesday.
The Reds visit Galatasaray as Group A’s fourth-placed side, after the frustrating late defeat to FC Copenhagen on matchday three.
That result left Erik ten Hag’s men a point behind the Danes and the upcoming opponents in the table.
With group winners Bayern Munich still to come to Old Trafford, a victory is needed if we are to keep qualification for the knockout stages in our own hands, while defeat would mean early elimination.
Here’s everything you need to know, ahead of our trip to Turkey…
HOW CAN I FOLLOW THE GAME?
Turkey is three hours ahead of the UK in terms of time difference and Wednesday’s match will have a slightly earlier kick-off slot than we’ve become accustomed to in the Champions League this season.
Proceedings get under way in Istanbul at 17:45 GMT, with the match being shown live on TNT Sports 1 in the UK.
You can also follow live updates in the United App and across our Match Centre on ManUtd.com, with live radio commentary available to listen to. Fans can enjoy exclusive build-up and post-match reaction on MUTV, which is set to commence from 16:40 GMT.
WHEN CAN I SEE THE HIGHLIGHTS?
The short version of our match highlights will be available to view on the United App and ManUtd.com from 01:00 GMT on Thursday.
Extended versions will follow on Friday, due to competition broadcasting restrictions.
WHAT IS THE TEAM NEWS?
Erik ten Hag will be hoping to have Rasmus Hojlund back, after the Dane missed the trip to Everton on Sunday due to injury. Hojlund has scored five Champions League goals for United already this season, becoming our quickest player to reach that mark in the competition.
Antony and Mason Mount also had to sit out the game on Merseyside due to injury, but Anthony Martial led the line well and capped off his display with a fine goal - his first of the season.
Marcus Rashford scored a penalty at Goodison Park but won’t be available due to suspension, while Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, Jonny Evans, Christian Eriksen and Casemiro are all injured.
The home side’s primary concerns revolve around the central defensive pair of Davinson Sanchez and Abdulkerim Bardakci, although reports in Turkey suggest both will be available.
WHAT IS GALATASARAY’S FORM LIKE?
The Turkish side’s 10-match league winning run was halted at Hatayspor prior to the international break, but Okan Buruk’s men were convincing victors at the weekend.
Dries Mertens scored twice, while Mauro Icardi and Wilfried Zaha were also among the goals, as Alanyaspor were beaten 4-0 on Saturday.
Galatasaray’s 11 wins in 13 games are still not enough to place them top of the Super Lig table, with arch-rivals Fenerbahce currently in first position by virtue of goal difference.
In terms of the Champions League, Galatasaray come into this one on the back of consecutive defeats to Bayern. Harry Kane netted in both fixtures, although the Turks did keep the Bundesliga champions at bay until late on at the Allianz Arena, before England’s leading scorer struck twice in a 2-1 success.
