The Galatasaray boss believes his side's draw with Juventus three weeks ago leaves them in a good position to make the knockout stages of the Champions League

Galatasaray boss Roberto Mancini believes his side's draw with Juventus on matchday 2 of the Champions League leaves Group B wide open.

The Turkish champions were thrashed 6-1 at home in their opening match, but claimed a surprise 2-2 tie with the Bianconeri in Turin in the Italian's first game in charge.

They now face two games against minnows Copenhagen, while Antonio Conte's side have a double header against the Spanish giants and the former Manchester City manager believes his side's fate will be decided in the final group game.

"With the point we took from Juventus the group has become more open and I believe that the group will be decided in the last group match against Juventus," he said at a press conference.

"Until that match I believe that we won't make many mistakes and we will stay alive until the last match. Of course we respect our opponents and first we have to win tomorrow and then we have to carry on in the other fixtures."

Galatasaray entertain Copenhagen on Wednesday, with the return fixture coming in a fortnight's time.
