Real Madrid Have back-to-back games against Galatasaray
Galatasaray striker Radamel Falcao has Real Madrid‘s Champions League hopes in his hands after Los Blancos stumbled in their opening two games.
Zinedine Zidane‘s side suffered defeat at Paris Saint-Germain on matchday one before dropping more points at home to Club Brugge on Tuesday.
Now, Real Madrid face back-to-back games against Falcao‘s Galatasaray, first travelling to Turkey (October 22) before hosting the Istanbul giants at home (November 6).
Four days after the trip to Istanbul, Los Blancos will play Barcelona in the first Clasico of the 2019/20 LaLiga Santander season.
Real Madrid have bad memories of Falcao from his time at Atletico Madrid. The Colombian scored two goals in four games against Los Merengues but lost three and won just one with Atletico.
That one win was during the 2013 Copa del Rey final where Falcao starred in a 2-1 win over Los Rojiblancos.
