"My prediction? Manchester United emerges victorious of course."
I'm not too fond on offering predictions because there are simply too many unknown variables -- perhaps most obviously, starting XI's and the approaches that each manager will instruct his side to take -- that will heavily influence a match. Nonetheless, I've noticed some comments recently in our match previews asking why I haven't offered a prediction for those particular contests. My guess is that many enjoy participating in predictions and it can be fun discussion ahead of a game. Therefore, I figured I'd put up a prediction thread for tonight's match and see how the interest plays out.
Here is a Galatasaray scouting report, and here is a match preview for tonight's match -- perhaps that will help provide you with some more information if you haven't already read our pre-game coverage. In the comments below, feel free to give us your predictions for Manchester United's first UEFA Champions League clash for this campaign.
