Barcelona vs. Galatasaray live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Europa League

Sports

Barcelona find themselves in Europe’s second-tier competition for the first time since 2004 after crashing out of the Champions League group stages at the end of 2021.

A place in the Europa League was originally framed as a major failure for the Catalan giants, but new boss Xavi has opted for a positive approach towards it as part of his rebuilding project.

His side impressed with a 5-3 aggregate-goal win over Napoli in their knockout playoff round and they are among the favorites to go on and win the competition this season.

Galatasaray qualified directly for the last 16 after topping Group E with 12 points from six group games.

Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary.
