Galatasaray will play their second game against Portugal's Benfica in UEFA Cup group stage on Thursday and are seeking at least a draw in the away game to keep the lead in Group B, but without Harry Kewell.

"Best teams of Turkey and Portugal will take the field tomorrow and we have to get good results in such games to achieve our goals," Galatasaray President Adnan Polat told reporters in Portuguese capital Lisbon on Wednesday.

"A draw would not be a bad result," Polat said.

Asked about injuries that made things difficult for coach Michael Skibbe to name the squad, Polat said, "Galatasaray will have eleven players on the field. So, I do not think we have any missing players."

Coach Skibbe did not call Harry Kewell, Aydin Yilmaz, Mehmet Topal, Emre Gungor, Shabani Nonda and Tobias Linderoth to 18-man squad against Benfica due to their injuries.

Harry Kewell scored to lead Galatasaray to a 1-0 win over Greece's Olympiakos in their first group match
