Europa League: St Johnstone vs Galatasaray preview, team news, prediction and tips
August 12


St Johnstone will welcome Galatasaray to McDiarmid Park in the second leg of the Europa League third qualifying round on Thursday. The kick-off is at 20:00 CEST.


St Johnstone made the headlines across Europe last week as the modest Scottish club managed to claim a 1-1 draw against Turkish giants Galatasaray on their soil in the first part of this two-legged tie. In fact, it were Callum Davidson's men who opened the scoring at the Turk Telekom Stadium thanks to Jason Kerr's goal. On the other hand, it took Sacha Boey only two minutes to cancel Kerr's opener.

The Saints have gone on to share points with Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership in another 1-1 stalemate over the weekend while Fatih Terim's side are still waiting for their 2021/22 Super Lig opener against Giresunspor on Monday, August 16.

Team news

Craig Bryson is the only doubt in the hosts' squad through a ligament issue while Gala's keeper Fernando Muslera will miss Thursday's clash after being sent off in the first leg.


Few expected anything from St Johnstone in Istanbul last week but Davidson's crop managed to silence their doubters with all but perfect performance in the Turkish capital. With the away goal rule already discarded by UEFA, the Saints will have to score against Gala at McDiarmid Park to have a shot at the EL playoff round and we do expect the Scots to find the back of the net at least once on Thursday since they successfully did it in Turkey.
