Group C: S.L. Benfica, Atletico Madrid, Galatasaray S.K., FC Astana
A balanced group but with the addition of new boys FC Astana. 2014-15 Champions League finalists, Atletico should be topping the group. Galatasaray will be edging Benfica to the 2nd spot and Benfica will be heading into the Europa League. Any match at Galatasaray will be really interesting given the atmosphere in the “stadium of hell”.
Atletico Madrid (14 points) 4 wins, 2 draws
Galatasaray (11 points) 3 wins, 2 draws, lose 1
Benfica (8 points) win 2, draw 2, lose 2
Astana (0 points) lose 6.
