Galatasaray know a win will take them through to the last-16 of the Champions League, but manager Fatih Terim is wary of a Braga side who have nothing but pride at stake.

The Turkish club are level on points with CFR Cluj, who play already qualified Manchester United at Old Trafford. However, Galatasaray have the better head-to-head record, meaning if they match Cluj's result, they will join United in the knockout rounds.

"Any of the teams could have gone through in this group. Braga's team were one of the strongest in the group, but football is like that and you can't always get results," Terim said.

"We know they have quality and strength, so it will be a good game. We want to get through and therefore our body and soul will be on the pitch. We don't care about other results, we just want to get a good result here.

"(Goalkeeper Fernando) Muslera is being looked at by our medical team, and if he is good to play, he will for sure. For me, the best option is to get through -- that's the important thing, whatever the result. Tomorrow's (Wednesday's) match will be much more difficult than in Istanbul, because Braga are playing at home so they have no pressure and they're playing for pride."

Braga manager Jose Peseiro wants his side to show they belong in Europe. "This game is important in every sense, financial and sporting," he said. "Since we have failed in our objectives in the Champions League, we have to be good tomorrow (Wednesday). We have to win and show we have the class to be in this competition.

"We've shown it many times, but we had bad luck this time, although part of that was our fault. We can't go into this game thinking about what we could have done or how sad we are -- we have to win first, then we can think about it.

"We have to enjoy playing this game, because it's a Champions League match. Galatasaray play the kind of football I like -- attractive and positive, they like to dominate a match. In Turkey, we were forced to retreat more than normal because they started really strong and attacking, just like we do, and that's what we will do in this game."

Douglao is suspended for Braga, but Paulo Vinicus makes a return from injury. For Galatasaray, Muslera is doubtful, although Cris has been deemed fit after picking up a knock.
