Galaxy’s European Fixtures Revealed

TS Galaxy’s three European friendly fixtures have been confirmed, with Sead Ramovic’s side set to start with Hungarian side Debrecen, who are lying fifth in their league, on 20 January.  

They will then face Ukrainian side Chronometers, who are sitting eighth in their league, a day later also in Turkey.              

The Carling Knockout Cup losing finalists will then conclude their trip in Europe when they face Slovenia side Mura on 26 January also in Turkey.  

While these fixtures and opponents have been confirmed, the venues and times for Tim Sukazi’s club are yet to be known.  

Galaxy are taking a European trip for the second time in more than a year. They went there during the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, drawing 1-1 with Guresunspor.  

They were then hammered 5-1 by Italian side Sampdoria, who have won the Italian Serie A once in their history.  

They concluded their trip in Europe against Germany third division side Dynamo Dresden, who beat them 2-1.  

They are heading to Europe in search of their first victory and despite the poor record, boss Sukazi spoke of the many benefits about this trip – one of them the transfer of youngster Aphelele Teto to Livingston. This after the Scottish side had watched him on that trip in 2022 before signing him.      

Galaxy are sitting in eighth position in the DStv Premiership with 21 points after 15 matches.

After losing the Carling Knockout to Stellenbosch FC on penalties in Durban in December, they have won their last two matches – beating Golden Arrows 2-0 and Chippa United with the same score line before the season was stopped due to the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) that is starting this weekend in Ivory Coast.       

The club will resume the DStv Premiership when they visit Kaizer Chiefs on 13 February at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
