Altintop content with Real Madrid pairing

Galatasaray midfielder Hamit Altintop says his team must fancy their chances against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
Real defeated Manchester United but it took a controversial sending off of Nani to swing the tie in the La Liga giants' favour.

While Altintop admits Jose Mourinho's men are a quality side, the midfielder is optimistic about the Turkish champions' chances.

"They've eliminated Manchester United. They were a little lucky but in any case nobody can question Real Madrid's ability," the 30-year-old told reporters.

"They are the favourites of this draw but I think there's a probability that we can do it. It's not that bad this draw."

The Turkey international spent one season in the Spanish capital before moving to Istanbul in 2012 and is quietly confident ahead of the tie as long as they get off to a good start.

"I'm happy to have the occasion to meet Mourinho and my former team-mates. If we get a good result from the first leg, then we know what we can do in front of our supporters," Altintop said.

"First comes the league for now. Then we'll concentrate ourselves on Real Madrid. I'm in a positive mood."
