Black Eagles
Team Story

After six straight seasons outside the Champions League, the Black Eagles are back after qualifying directly to the group stage by winning the Turkish Super Lig. They’ll begin the campaign without Mario Gomez, who scored 26 goals in the league last year before deciding to leave for Wolfsburg in the offseason after the failed Turkish coup. They boast a wealth of young Turkish talent, however, in attacking midfielder Oğuzhan Özyakup and forward Cenk Tosun. Veteran winger Ricardo Quaresma will provide experienced leadership after winning Euro 2016 with Portugal this summer.
