CSKA's opponents

CSKA will meet Pjunik(Erevan) in the next round and if we manage to defeat them ( we have to) ........Galata.

Absolutely no chances for us in my view

I would not think about galata right now.

However, its true that it seems impossible! In teh Ali Semi Yen hell and with the traditions, players and money they have ... ghard to see it.

However, once, every big team (and Gala are one in their own right, not so much equal to the greats, but as a phenomenon of what they did as a Turkish team) will fall sooner or later. gala too. Then, CSKA has a good record of being the reaosn for big teams to fall ...or to start the fall. So you never know.

If I am looking for surprise in teh 3rd CL Q, I woudl bet on CSKA.

Galatasaray, can not afford elimination. We do very well in CL qualifiers anyway, we have never been eliminated, never lost a game, and even eliminated the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United. If CSKA does eliminated us fans would riot all over the place especially after last seasons disaster in CL.

On paper we have a very good strong squad, though we lack a good playmaker (# 10) we will buy one soon (most likely to be Yildiray Basturk), but last season we had a very good squad and we were horrible do to the fact that many Turkish NT players after the WC forgot how to play football (Hasan Sas, Hakan Unsal, and Umit Davala for example) and new foreign signings were big flops, so we just have to hope this season these players start playing football again and that our new signings to well. We are not what we used to be, so CSKA does stand a pretty big chance.

P.S. We are building a new Ali Sami Yen, so for the next 2 years we will play at the Istanbul ATATURK Olimpiyat Stadi which has a capacity of 80,000.

CSKA is almost thru after 2-0 away in Erevan! So, Gala here we come ...

Thanks for the info. Its interesting to know that the game wont be at Ali Semi Yem. May be it does nt matter but may be it does .. who knows.

And yes - galata are fav on paper no question. Anything but qualification for U will be a major major surprise.

Good luck. but I feel like it wont be easy for you ...
