Mancini confident of Gala progression
Galatasaray coach Roberto Mancini is confident his side can get surprise results against Real Madrid and Juventus to qualify for the Champions League round of 16.
The Turkish giants currently sit second in Group B, six points behind the Spanish champions and ahead of third-placed Copenhagen on goal difference.
Gala face a tough trip to Madrid on matchday five before hosting Juve and Mancini believes a win against Carlo Ancelotti's side will all but ensure their place in the knockout stages.
"Galatasaray are a very good team who have the potential to do well this season," he told Uefa.com. "It's never easy in the Champions League and our group is particularly tough. However, we can progress.
"I'm still confident of qualifying. We need to improve as a team but I am hopeful of a good result in our next game against Real Madrid. Then we will have everything to play for. As they say in football, never say never."
