Turkish soccer team Galatasaray will seek a win or at least a draw against Germany's Hertha BSC Berlin on Wednesday to earn a place in 32 teams in the UEFA Cup, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported on Tuesday.

Hertha Berlin will host Galatasaray in Group B in the Olympic Stadium where German team have drawn both of their group stage games to date, said the report.

Galatasaray, leaders of the Group B, defeated 1-0 Greece's Olympiakos in Istanbul and gained a 2-0 significant victory over Portugal's Benfica in an away match. However, Istanbul lions surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to Ukraine's Metalist Kharkiv.

Galatasaray need just one point against Hertha to be sure of advancing in UEFA Cup, it said.

Galatasaray midfielder Ayhan Akman will serve a one-match suspension while striker Umit Karan will miss the match due to an injury.

The match will kick-off at 8:45 local time in Berlin's Olympic Stadium. Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli will officiate the match.
