Galatasaray vs Antalyaspor Match Preview
Hot and cold at home and largely inconsistent on the road, Galatasaray’s bid to retain league title is in shambles as we approach mid-season.
Sitting at 7th in the table before matchday 17 starts, the team from Istanbul is 10 points behind league leaders Sivasspor.
They may still get into the Champions League qualification zone if things get better from here, since the second placed Basaksehir is at a 6-point drift.
For that, they need to start making home advantage count to the best, especially against teams like Antalyaspor.
Beaten just once in this season, Gala sit with a moderate home record of 4 wins and 3 draws from 8 games so far.
Meantime, their Saturday’s guests are in tatters this season and haven’t won a league game in 9 attempts (3D-6L).
Even though, Antalyaspor are 16th in the 18-team table, a couple of positive results can push them into safe zone.
Galatasaray vs Antalyaspor Prediction
This is a head-to-head fixture that Galatasaray dominates, and we shouldn’t look elsewhere for an easy bet since Antalyaspor have struggled on the road this season and come with a dry spell in front of goal during the period.
The home win priced at 1.40 odd is a small price, suitable for high stakes or boost the odds of accumulator bets on Saturday.
Since, Galatasaray have an excellent goal scoring record, we may also look into handicap markets for better option since Antalya haven’t found the back of the net in their last three away games.
“Three (3)” is the minimum number of goals that Gala scored in each of the last 4 home games against Antalyaspor. Thus -1.5 Asian handicap is an excellent option for this Turkish Super Lig weekend fixture.
