Galatasaray's other rivals in Group D are Germany's Schalke 04 and Russia's Lokomotiv Moscow.
Porto are at the top of the group with 13 points followed by Schalke with 8 points, Galatasaray with 4 points and Lokomotiv Moscow with 3 points.
Galatasaray have already lost their chance to advance the last 16 round in UEFA Champions League. If Turkish side would finish the group matches at third place, they will transfer to UEFA Europa League round of 32.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
