Early on it was all Genoa with Muslera keeping Gala in it early. But things began to slow down and the Turks began to dictate their own style of play with posession. Countless times each team found the woodwork before the half with Gala possessing the ball at nearly 57%. But the second half would each each team squander high percentage chances, with the one and only goal from Elmander coming on one of 3 breakaways he had in the contest. Game could easily have been a draw or a Genoa win. Great game played by Geneseo98, look forward to seeing his Italians grow as the season moves on. Borriello and Immobile are a great strike force.

Clean Sheet: Muslera
MOTM: Muslera 8.8
Muslera put up his 3rd clean sheet in 3 attempts as Gala closes out Match Week 1 with 7 points out of 10. Playing their first game since a 5-1 thrashing by Stoke City in the Coppa it was important to get off to a good start, but both teams dealt with lag and couldn't find much of a rhythm early but Elmander burried a shot for 25 yards out for the goal that ended up the winner in this contest. Taking away from the first week that you have to shoot to win, Gala put up the most shots tonight out of any of their 4 matches so far Serie C or Coppa.

Manager Go Devils former player at Flamengo Ronaldinho really controlled the middle of the park for Mineiro, but wasn't able to capitalize. The same could be said for the Gala offense that missed numerous opportunities including two breakaways. GG thebouncer24. Really enjoyed your style of play and appreciate you not hammering home the one or two goals I gave you by turning the ball over in front of my goal. Still knocking off the dust from a few weeks off of play. You should have much success in this division and good luck until we meet again.

This one was over early with Peter Crouch heading about out of the hands of the Gala goalkeeper finding the back of the net. Things just went down hill from there. Aslan just couldn't make Stoke pay while holding on to the ball much longer than they are accustomed to.

MOTM: Verdu 8.9, Capdevila 8.9 Tough match for Galatasaray to walk away from with only one point. While Espanyol could have easily scored 3-5 goals, Gala hit the post twice on one shot, and layed a free kick into the box to a wide open Yilmaz who couldn't put his shot on net to beat the keeper and put away the game. Tough leading for 49 minutes only to concede in the dying seconds! GG Roger
SEASON 8 PREVIEWAfter a terrible season for Galatasaray last year team chairman Unal Aysal strangely kept on all players and the team manager. Manager Go Devils speaches and early performances filled the fans with hope and aspirations of a Serie B promotion. But The Devils hit a road block along the way and just couldn’t create the goals they needed behind a stellar defense lead by Ujafulusi at Center Half and former Lazio keeper Fernando Muslera. One of the best defenses in the TSO still couldn’t push Galatasary into the top third of the league. This season Go Devils vows to change his strategies and tactics. Gone is the conservative 4-2-3-1 dreaded by Turkish fans. Replaced by a more aggressive 4-3-2-1 style that would seem to utilize the strengths of playmakers like Amrabat, Yilmaz, Inan, and company. While this season sees a few strong teams moving on to the greener pastures of Serie B, the influx of new ownership in Serie C means Season 8 could be as hard and unpredictable as any season to date.

Muslera punches another clean sheet ticket in his career but Gala is unable to get ONE shot on goal and lucks out for the draw. Bilbao hit the woodwork twice in the match but was never really able to get it going offensively. Gala had 2 breaks in the final offensive third but failed to capitalize.
