Erzurumspor vs Galatasaray
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 16.00 UK/ 17.00 CET
Venue: Kâzım Karabekir Stadyumu (Erzurum).
One of the best teams in the league takes on a side that has already plans in place for when they get relegated. Erzurum is the 17th team in a league of 18 and has not even posted points at a rate of 1 per match. All they could manage in this Super Lig season is just four wins from 23 attempts.
Galatasaray, on the other hand, has almost locked in the runner-up position. They find pride in the fact that the squad has scored the most goals in the competition, and if not for the freak of nature Istanbul, they would boast of the best defensive record as well.

Erzurumspor vs Galatasaray Prediction
It’s basically a no contest. Galatasaray is the best team in the country if not for Istanbul, while Erzurum is the worst, if not for Akhisarspor. Gala has scored the most number of goals in the Super Lig and has conceded the second-least. And importantly, Galatasaray has a 100% winning record against this opponent, and they have never even conceded a goal too.
Going on, Erzurum was winless in 13 of their last 17 matches, and in nine of their last eleven. At home, they avoided a victory in four of their last six attempts, and one of the games where they won was in a friendly. Their counterparts, at the same time, was unbeaten in 14 of their last 16 fixtures, and in eight of their last nine on the road. Their sole loss came in a cup game.
The visitors will try to dominate this game from early on and take the win. They will try to improve their goal difference further and make a pass at the title, and at the same time consolidate their Champions League ambitions. Right now they are six points below the toppers, and with Istanbul showing no signs of slowing down, it’s important that Gala doesn’t either.
Expect a win for the guests, and count on them to bring the game under control right away.
