Akhisarspor vs Galatasaray
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 23 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Belediye Stadi (Akhisar).
Akhisarspor are going to take on the defending champions Galatasaray in the 6th round of the Turkish Super Lig.
The hosts enjoyed the most successful season last year as they managed to stay safe from the relegation battle and win the Turkish Cup as well.
In their first match of the season, they also lifted the Super Cup trophy after beating Galatasaray, but currently they are in a severe results crisis.
Akhisarspor are still looking for their first win in the Super Lig and Cem Kavcak’s side has been one of the most inefficient in the competition.
They cannot be proud of their start in the Europa League as well since home side lost to Krasnodar at home pitch. This is going to be another hard challenge for them.
Galatasaray suffered a heavy defeat away to Trabzonspor two rounds ago, but they managed to bounce back and beat Kasimpasa in the latest league clash. They are a pint behind Basaksehir and they are going to fight another super exciting title battle.
Eren Derdiyok and the lads have also been pretty confident in their 3-0 victory against Lokomotiv Moscow in their first match in the Champions League group stage.
The visitors are the most productive side in the domestic championship and they are going to do their best in order to keep the trophy in their hands.
Akhisar Belediye vs Galatasaray: Head-to-head
Although Galatasaray have been much more successful in their head to head clashes, Akhisarspor managed to beat their rivals two times in the last three occasions.
In their clashes, the crowd has been usually able to enjoy at least three goals in total per match.
Akhisarspor vs Galatasaray: Prediction
The hosts are in a very poor form and Galatasaray are more than capable of taking advantage of their rivals’ bad performances. The visitors are strong favorites in this one and they should be able to get back home with all three points.
Akhisarspor haven’t been involved in too many efficient clashes so far in the season, but they are facing the most productive side in this round. Therefore, we believe that this match is going to go over 2.5 margin.
