The scheduled Champions League game between Manchester United and Galatasaray is expected to proceed despite earlier concerns due to adverse weather conditions in Istanbul.
Continuous precipitation has been occurring in the city of Turkey for the entire day, causing worries about the condition of the field at Rams Park.
UEFA has announced that they are keeping a close eye on the weather forecast and currently, the match is still scheduled to take place as planned.
United and Galatasaray showed up on time, starting their warm-up routines as planned.
Erik ten Hag’s team enters the game in last place in Group A, having lost three out of four matches in this season’s tournament. They have also failed to win in their last three trips to Galatasaray’s home ground.
Galatasaray managed to overcome a deficit twice to secure a 3-2 victory against their opponents at Old Trafford in October. Mauro Icardi, who scored the winning goal in the 81st minute, helped his team overcome the challenge after United’s Casemiro was shown a red card.
