thumbnail Hello,

The former Turkey boss has reportedly been telling his troops over and over again in training this week that there is no doubt that they will overcome los Blancos

Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim is supremely confident that his side will defeat Real Madrid in next week's Champions League group stage clash in Istanbul.

The Super Lig giants were well beaten 3-0 by los Blancos in the first leg of last season's quarter-final clash between the two sides but went desperately close to turning the tie around at home, only to ultimately bow out 5-3 on aggregate.

Terim is therefore in a bullish frame of mind ahead of Tuesday's encounter at the Turk Telekom Arena and has, according to AMK, been roaring the same line at his troops over and over again during training this week:

"We are going to defeat Real Madrid; no-one doubts it."

Galatasaray have the benefit of a weekend off ahead of their meeting with Carlo Ancelotti's men, who face a tricky trip to the Madrigal on Saturday night to face Liga rivals Villarreal.
