Venue: Türk Telekom Arena (Istanbul).
Galatasaray needs to deal with the valiant effort being put in my Besiktas for the Champions League spot currently in possession of the former. Both are unbeaten in their last five match-days, and it would do Gala a world of good if home ties are converted into huge wins. Come the final stretch of the season, it will help to lift a lot of the pressure.

Galatasaray vs Antalyaspor Prediction
The hosts of this tie have scored the most goals in the Super Lig, and if not for Basaksehir, they have conceded the least number of goals as well. Moreover, by far they are the best team at home in the competition. They have not lost a single game in front of their home crowd and is the only one to do so.
The team has also scored the most goals at home, 32. The next best is just 25. They won five of their last six home ties, and the one match where they couldn’t win in this stretch of six fixtures was in the Europa League. Going further back, they were unbeaten in 18 of their last 20 attempts at home. Meanwhile, Antalyaspor was winless in three of their last four away games, and astonishingly, was winless in 12 of their last 13 overall match-ups.
Finally, coming to their h2h encounters, Galatasaray won four of the last five meetings and drew the fifth. Also, the team registered 16 of the last 21 h2h wins. And importantly, except for a loss in 2010, Gala has an unbeaten record at home against this opponent.
Adding all these to the hosts’ need for three points due to the mounting pressure by Besiktas, we can rightfully expect the home team to record a thorough win.
