Saint Johnstone FC of Scotland manager Callum Davidson has described the Europa League encounter with Turkish Super League giants Galatasaray as a ‘huge’ clash.

The two teams, Saint Johnstone and Galatasaray, were drawn together in the third qualifying round tie as far as the Europa League is concerned. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw when they met in Turkey last week. The Saints were impressive in the first leg clash played in Istanbul.

Saint Johnstone have a good chance of winning the tie. A win in the second leg at McDiarmid Park would guarantee Davidson and Saint Johnstone a place in the next round of the competition.

Galatasaray have suffered a major blow in their bid to win the league title after they were forced to a disappointing 1-1 at home to Faith Karagumuruk. Galatasaray needed to win the matchday 34 clash to significantly close the gap on league leaders Beskitas.

Beskitas started the weekend with a four-point lead over Fenerbahce in second place, while Galatasaray were two points further back in third place.
