Alanyaspor may have won their last two matches, but both had been against minnows. This Sunday though, they are on the road and are taking on tough customer, Galatasaray. On top of that, Alanyaspor have lost every single one of their visits to this stadium in this decade as well. Likely, expect Galatasaray to emerge victorious this match-day.

Galatasaray vs Alanyaspor Prediction
Gala had to wait till the very last, but they did manage to secure a last-gasp draw against Trabzonspor the previous match-day. The 90th-minute equalizer by Yuto Nagatomo clinched a single point for his club.
Meanwhile, against arguably the worst team in the competition at the moment, Alanyaspor recorded a 5-0 home win in their latest league encounter.
However, take into account how the team has fared at this venue, and against Galatasaray in general. To quote a stat, Gala holds a 100% unbeaten record against this rival, and if not for a single 1-1 draw, it would have been a 100% winning record.
Going on, at this venue though, Gala holds such a 100% win-record, and in fact, have conceded a single goal in total in h2h clashes here. To make things further clearer, consider that the hosts at this venue possess a 13-1 combined scorecard in their favor, from just three prior meetings between these opponents.
Moreover, at home, Galatasaray have lost just four times since late January. One had come in the Europa League against Benfica, while the next two came in the Champions League, against PSG, and Real Madrid respectively. The final one had come against Istanbul Basaksehir. It goes without saying that these squads are considered some of the very best in the world, and in Turkey.
On the other hand, we have Alanyaspor, who were winless in 13 of their previous 15 road trips, and by all means, are huge underdogs this Sunday.
Considering all these observations, a convincing win looks likely for Galatasaray.
