Galatasaray vs Benfica live stream info, TV schedule - October 21, 2015

October 20, 2015 By Andrew Amoth Wandola
The return of Burak Yilmaz against Benfica is one of the best news so far for Galatasaray fans who are yet to taste victory in the Champions League this season.

Benfica have won two games out of two in Group C after a shocking 2-1 win over Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in their previous encounter in the competition. For Rui Vitoria’s men to maintain their winning run when they face Galatasaray at the Turk Telecom Arena, they will have to neutralize Galatasaray's deadly striker Yilmaz. Yilmaz has so far scored 75 goals for Galatasaray since joining the club in July 2012 from bitter rivals Trabzonspor. 

The 30-year-old forward helped his club secure a 4-1 win over Genclerbirligi on Saturday by scoring the fourth goal from the spot, and is looking forward to a better performance in the Champions League. Having secured only a single point so far in the Champions League, the Turkish side now needs a win against Benfica to revive their hopes of qualifying for the last round of 16.

Team news 

Galatasaray:

Galatasaray will have to play without their midfielder Hamit Altintop (below), who has been sidelined due to a knee injury.

Benfica:

Benfica will play without defender Nelson Semedo and striker Nuno Santos who are both suffering from knee injuries. Brazilian forward Jonas will be instrumental to Benfica’s hopes of reaching the knock-out round for the first time since 2012. Jonas has scored seven goals so far for the two-time European Cup winners.
