A draw in the second qualifying round of the Champions League that seems to have already ended is the match between Galatasaray and PSV. The Dutch team has a wide advantage and will hope to avoid an embarrassing result in the second leg to pass.
Champions League second qualifying round preview
Galatasaray’s chances of advancing to the next round of the Champions League appear to be running out before a ball is kicked in the second leg. The Turkish side were routinely defeated in the first leg in the Netherlands, falling 5-1. It was certainly one of the worst European nights in recent times for the Turks, as they completely fell apart in the second half of the match. Galatasaray entered the second half behind 2-1, as Emre Kilinic had scored three minutes before the break to give them a lifeline. However, that would turn out to be the only shot he would get on goal in the 1990s. The Turkish side were dominated from start to finish, managing only 36% of possession throughout the game.
As for PSV, it was going to be one of their most famous European nights at the Phillips Stadion, as they were routinely able to gain the lead in the first leg. Eran Zahavi was in excellent shape for the hosts as he shot with a hat. trick, with the third of his goals six minutes from time. It was also a welcome sight for PSV, as Mario Gotze marked his full debut for the Dutch team with two goals in an action-packed second half. Based on their dominance in the first leg, it would be difficult to see another victory for PSG in the second leg.
