  Rangers Europa League opponents profiled as Steven Gerrard's men face Galatasaray or Hajduk Split The Ibrox side will be at home if they make the playoff but it won't be an easy game. The bright side for Rangers is they got a home tie if they beat Willem II next week but Galatasaray won't be a fun team to come up against on the pitch.

Rangers FC - Galatasaray SK. 01/10/2020 20:45 GMT. AE Larisa have not managed to score a goal in their 5 most recent matches in Super League.

Welcome to Hell.

The infamous three word greeting that makes a trip to face Galatasaray in the explosive enclaves of Istanbul about as appealing as a firewalking session at the height of the Turkish summer.

Yet for a club whose support like nothing more than to make life a misery for visiting teams, it’s fair to say Galatasaray have lived through their own footballing Hades in the past 12 months.

From a record breaking 22nd title secured in May 2019 the Istanbul giants suffered a slump of biblical proportions last season - slipping to sixth and only just squeezing into the Europa League qualifiers.

Erdogan's electric coup: This Turkish car has a decisive advantage over German electric cars

 Erdogan's electric coup: This Turkish car has a decisive advantage over German electric cars It was a special kind of coup that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced for his compatriots on December 27, 2019. A Turkish e-car, developed by the Turkish joint venture Togg, on Turkish soil. "Today we are experiencing a historic day for our country", Erdogan exulted. “We are seeing a 60-year-old dream come true.” Erdogan alluded to the last Turkish attempt to manufacture their own car. "Devrim" was the name of the brand. It turned out to be a flop.

All of which is music to the ears of the Rangers support ahead of this week’s Europa League play-off crunch at Ibrox.

Not only has the winner-takes-all nature of the one-legged tie saved Steven Gerrard’s players from a mentally and physically draining 4500 mile round trip to the banks of the Black Sea - it’s also removed any threat of the Turks’ ‘Ultraslan’ group of hardcore fans making life a misery in the build-up to the tie.

Not that Gerrard would ever be daft enough to think a third successive qualification for the lucrative group stage is in the bag.

Despite their slump last time out experienced boss Fatih Terim has steadied the ship. The goalless draw at home to fierce rivals Fenerbahce might not have set the heather on fire.

But it was another marker that Gala’s powderpuff efforts of the last year are firmly in the past.

As symbols in The Eternal Rivalry go it hardly matched Graeme Souness risking all out war by planting a Gala flag in the heart of the Fenerbahce centre circle after the 1996 Turkish Cup Final.

But according to Turkish football experts Terim’s side are back firing and confident ahead of the trip to Glasgow.

“If Rangers think about trying to all out attack Galatasaray then they will get destroyed,” is the summary of Super Lig specialist Ganadei Ursanlilar.

“They will have to be patient, defend well and then look to attack because Gala will pick them off on the counter otherwise.

“Gala have settled down after a turbulent year. They are very strong in defence. They have made two of the best signings of the summer in goalkeeper Fatih Ozturk who is every bit as good as regular keeper Fernando Muslera who is out injured with a double leg break.

“Hard tackling midfielder Peter Etebo is the other impressive signing. He was excellent in the Europa League win over Hajduk Split.

“Gala are very good on the counter attack with Ryan Babel and Radamel Falcao playing just in behind a main striker they carry an obvious threat.

“He enjoys the freedom and has so much experience at this level. He is still the main danger.”

Yet, two decades on from their UEFA Cup and European Super Cup double, the slide of the one-time superpower can’t be underestimated.

Ursanlilar said: “Galatasaray have had a troublesome year and finished sixth for two main reasons. They suffered serious injuries throughout the campaign to key men including goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, Falcao and Babel.

“But they also had money problems in the background. Thanks to the sale of a huge area of land they now seem to be steady again and looking to build for the season ahead.”

Much like on the park then.

But while the threat is clear, Gerrard is rightly confident he has enough strength, ability and Euro know-how in his squad to quell the danger and impose his own successful game plan on the Turks.

Turkey could not have got their Euro 2016 qualifiers off to a worse start. Topal and the experienced Galatasaray stalwart Hakan Balta seems the most likely pairing. Sener Ozbayrakli and Besiktas’s Ismail Koybasi are other options at full-back. It is in attacking midfield that Terim really is spoilt for

Porto, Braga and Feyenoord have been put to the sword in Govan in the past 12 months while last week’s 4-0 thumping of Dutch side Willem II across the North Sea is further evidence of a side with a ruthless streak in continental football.

Much has been said of the resolute Ibrox rearguard after a record-breaking start to the domestic campaign.

And that together with the explosive counter-attacking ability of Ryan Kent, Ianis Hagi and possibly even Jordan Jones after his eye-catching return against Motherwell means Gerrard can again strike the balance between defence and attack that has served Gers so well in Europe.

The last time the sides met in 2000 Gala had just been crowned best in Europe while Dick Advocaat’s Rangers side were looking to make their own mark on the Continent.

Both clubs might only dream of those lofty heights right now. But domestic and continental improvement is a must for both.

Gala boss Terim - the man at the helm when the UEFA Cup made it’s way to Istanbul - said as much after the draw with Fenerbahce: “The Europa League is very important to us in many ways and of course, we will play our strongest team.

“At the moment, we are playing every three or four days and that can be a factor.

“But we just have to deal with it. It always hurts when you don’t win a derby game and we have a chance to put it right this week in Glasgow.”

The alternative for Terim and his men isn’t worth thinking about as failure to win on Thursday could see Gala’s season return towards another form of hell.
