While Okan Buruk’s side placed third in their Champions League group, Sparta Prague were runners-up in Europa League Group C, therefore missing out on a direct route to the last 16.

Galatasaray had to come through three two-legged qualifying ties to reach the group stage of the 2023-24 Champions League, where Copenhagen awaited alongside two powerhouses in Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

Taking four points from their two matches with Man United put Galatasaray firmly in contention for a ticket to the knockouts as they headed into the final matchweek level on points with Copenhagen, but a 1-0 defeat on Danish soil condemned Buruk’s side to a shot at glory in the Europa League.

Each of Galatasaray’s last five attempts to progress from the Champions League group stage have now ended in failure, and they have not made it past the last 16 of the Europa League since its rebranding.

Joining Rangers, Real Betis and Aris Limassol in an intriguing Group C of the Europa League, Sparta Prague were ostensibly set to settle for Europa Conference League football for the second half of the campaign, but back-to-back victories over Betis and Aris in the final two gameweeks saw the Reds edge out the Spaniards by one point for second place.

Rangers – whose matchday six victory over Betis allowed Sparta to creep into the top two – only finished one point bettwe off than Brian Priske’s side as well, but just once have the 13-time Czech champions progressed beyond the knockout-round playoffs, losing to Villarreal in the 2015-16 quarter-finals.

On-loan Chelsea attacker Hakim Ziyech will not be involved in the knockout-round playoffs due to an ankle injury, which he sustained at the AFCON while turning up for Morocco.

Centre-back Abdulkerim Bardakci is also struggling with a hamstring issue, while a check must be made on midfielder Sergio Oliveira, who is nursing a muscular injury.

Sparta Prague Team News

Sparta right-back Andreas Vindheim is out for the long-term due to unspecified problems, while efficient winger Lukas Haraslin did not take part in the win over Karvina and will seemingly also sit this one out.

The visitors are otherwise in good health for the first leg, where Martin Vitik – who started five of his side’s six group-stage matches – should be recalled to a three-man defensive wall.
