Faith Terim, who led Galatasaray to last term's Super Lig title, was dismissed over a dispute concerning his position with the Turkish national team. Former Manchester City boss Mancini has been brought in the to replace him, and his managerial start with the Turkish side could not be harder with a trip to Italy to face Juventus.
Galatasaray come into this match without a win in their last five matches. Despite leading against rivals Besiktas 2-1 in late September, crowd trouble saw the match abandoned with minutes to go.
Mancini's new side took a thumping at home to Real Madrid in their opening Champions League match, with a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick giving them a 6-1 win at the Turk Telekom Arena.
Mancini faces a tough task of qualifying from this group with Real Madrid and Juventus front runners, but with the Turks progressing through to the last eight in last year's competition, expectation will be high. William Hill don't give them much hope tonight, pricing them at 17/2 (9.50) to take the three points.
Juventus are unbeaten so far this season, having started their Serie A defence in fine form. Antonio Conte's side sit in third position in the league, with 16 points from their first six matches.
Despite the strong start in their domestic league, the Italians will be disappointed with their opening Champions League match against FC Copenhagen, where they drew 1-1 away, despite numerous chances to win the match.
That result means tonight is a must-win match, and with William Hill pricing them at 1/3 (1.33) they have little doubts over the outcome. The same firm price the draw at 9/2 (5.50).
With the outright price of Juventus to short to touch, it's worth looking elsewhere for value in this fixture. A bet that stands out is both teams to find the net, with William Hill pricing it at 10/11 (1.91). This bet would have landed in five of Juventus's last six matches, as well as six of Galatasaray's last seven.
