Aysal: Galatasaray the real deal

30 March 2013 14:11

Galatasaray chairman Unal Aysal says his side has nothing to fear from any side left in the Champions League.

The Super Lig champions are rated as rank outsiders ahead of their quarter-final meeting with Real Madrid, who appear to be coming into form at just the right time as they go in search of their 10th European crown.

However, Aysal claims Galatasaray are a match for not only Real, but also every other side still standing in this season's Champions League.

"In this round all the teams are playing to defeat each other, but Galatasaray are not inferior to anyone," the 71-year-old told CNNTurk.

"Real Madrid are very strong, they have a budget three times greater than ours and they have very strong players, but we also have great ambition.

"We have no reservations - Galatasaray will go on to the field to win."

Galatasaray travel to the Spanish capital for the first leg on Wednesday, before welcoming Real to the Turk Telekom Arena for the return fixture on April 9.
