Turkish Super League giants Galatasaray have failed in their bid to have fans in attendance for the Europa League clash at Lazio after their appeal against a two-match ban was thrown out by UEFA, European football’s governing body.

Galatasaray had earlier been handed a two-match ban on having their fans at away grounds and the club swiftly contested the ruling, but they will have to serve the punishment after their appeal was dismissed. Galatasaray were punished with a two-match ban for their away fans for their behaviour during the Europa League match at Marseille on the final day of September. The crowd trouble marred the game which ended in a goalless draw. 

With the two-match ban in place, Galatasaray fans won’t be at the Stadio Olimpico when the Turkish Super League giants take on Lazio on December 9. In addition, the Turkish Super League side also copped a €50,000 fine for the throwing of objects and lighting of fireworks during the Marseille game. Also, a fine of €8,000 was handed out to Galatasaray for the damage caused by their supporters and they have been given 30 days to contact French side Marseille.

Group E is one of the toughest groups in the Europa League this season and Turkish giants Galatasaray are the pacesetters in the group with a record of two wins and two draws from their first four games. 

Galatasaray have a three-point lead at the top of the group ahead of the final two group games. The Turkish giants have eight points from four games, while Lazio, in second place, have five points from four games with a record of one win, two draws and one draw.

French giants Marseille face a big task to qualify for the knockout stage as one of the top two teams as they are in third place with four points from four games. Marseille have drawn all their four matches in the Europa League group stage this season. Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow are last on the Group E standings with two points from four games. 

Ex-Premier League striker Kevin Philips believes that Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish would prove to be a better investment than his fellow England international Jadon Sancho. Phillips talked to Football Insider aboutGrealish and Sancho amidst the interest in them from the Manchester duo of Manchester United and Manchester City.

It’s an open secret that Manchester United were keen to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in the last two summer transfer windows but they have not been able to lure him away from the German club. Sancho was a Manchester City player before the English winger left the club for Germany in the bid to play regular first team football.

For Aston Villa midfielder Grealish, he’s attracting serious interest from both Manchester City and Manchester United. The Red Devils were the first club to show interest in the player last season, but he was seen as an alternative to Jadon Sancho if they were unable to sign him. In the end, Jack Grealish went on to sign a new Villa deal in the summer as Manchester United failed to sign him or top target Jadon Sancho. The transfer reports involving Grealish and Manchester City started some weeks ago after he made a blistering start to the new league campaign.

Kevin Philips played for clubs like Southampton and Sunderland with distinction in the Premier League during his football career and he knows a thing or two about quality players. According to him, the Manchester clubs would be better served spending money on Grealishrather than Jadon Sancho. He said that Grealish continues to improve as a player and that his expectation is that he would be the recipient of the British transfer record in 2021.

Philips expects one of the Manchester clubs to pay at least £100m to sign him from Aston Villa thus beating the present record held by Manchester United star Paul Pogba, an £89m signing from Juventus in 2016.
