The Betpal Football Bet of the Day is in Istanbul, where Galatasaray host Manchester United. The Reds are already assured of qualification to the knock out stages, and top place in the group, so the Turkish side will be hoping to secure a vital 3 points in Group H.
Match: Galatasaray v Manchester United
Bet of the Day: Lay Galatasaray
Best Odds: 1.98 at Betfair
Much has been made of Manchester United travelling to Turkey with a weak squad, but they still boast a decent roster and there may be some value in taking the hosts on in Istanbul. Alex Ferguson has decided to leave the likes of Rooney and Van Persie at home, but the second string are no mugs. The likes of Rafael, Buttner and Wootton – while not household names just yet – all started in the League cup versus a very strong Chelsea side, and put in a creditable performance (a 90 minute draw in fact). Tunnicliffe, Powell and Macheda were all also involved and all travel to Turkey. With a few first team players in there too, the Reds can still take something from the game, especially considering Galatasaray failed to beat either Cluj or Braga at home in their other two home Champions League games.
