Barcelona vs Galatasaray: Barcelona will take on Galatasaray in the Round of 16- Leg 1 of the Europa League 2021-22 on Friday, 11th March 2022 at Camp Nou.
Barcelona are unbeaten in their previous eight matches and are currently on a four-game winning run across all competitions. They are in incredible form as they made their way into the last 16 after a 4-2 win over Napoli. The Catalan Giants now come into this game on the back of a 2-1 win over Elche CF in La Liga.
On the other hand, Galatasaray’s four-match unbeaten run came to an end after a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Konyaspor in their previous fixture in the Super Lig. They will be up against an in-form Barcelona and would have to punch above their weight in order to come out on top.
