Date: Sunday, 02 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Vodafone Park (Istanbul).
A match between two superpowers in Turkish football is set to take place on Sunday as Galatasaray travels to Besiktas.
The Black Eagles are 4th in the points table after 13 rounds are completed. They have won 6 matches and lost 4 in that period. A total of 24 goals have been scored by Besiktas while conceding 17 as well.
The Black and Whites are on a 2 match win streak in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 3 of their last 5 matches across all venues. At home, they have lost 2 of their last 5 games in all competitions. The last 3 home games they played had over 2.5 goals scored in total. This trend is visible in 4 of their 6 home games in both Super Lig and Europa.
Galatasaray will be careful against their opponents for Sunday. There are only 3 points separating them and if they make a mistake it will affect their title run. The reigning champions are 3rd in the table with 7 wins and 3 losses in their 13 games. A decent 23 goals have been scored and 15 have been conceded also.
But their recent performances are not suited for a champion side. In the last 8 matches they played in all competitions they have lost 3 and have only 1 win in return. Under 2.5 goals came in 6 of those matches.
In the last 5 games on the road, they have lost 3 and the remaining were won. Under 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 matches. So things are looking shaky at the back for them as they travel to Besiktas.
