Galatasaray vs Besiktas Prediction
Apart from their 2-0 loss to Alanyaspor on the road in the Turkish Cup, Galatasaray has not suffered another loss in their past 13 fixtures across all major competitions.
The host will return home after a 2-2 draw on the road against Sivasspor in their prior encounter. They are unbeaten in the last 6 matches with five wins in it.
The reigning champion is further backed up in the clash by their home ground advantage. The host has recorded only one loss in their 13 home matches so far this season in the campaign.
Besides, they are 6 points ahead of Besiktas in the table. The visitor is on a 2 game winning streak, following a 2-1 win at home against Ankaragucu in their previous clash.
Six of their overall eight losses have come on the road. So, Sergen Yalcin and his team will be at a backhand in their visit to the Istanbul ground.
It has to be noted that the host has the bragging rights in their last two meetings at this venue. So, the odds will be against the traveling side based on their poor away form.
The betting tip for a home win in full time is still at higher odds in 1.95 ranges. Hence, a safer option will be to draw no bet upon Galatasaray in the clash at 1.44 odds which will give decent returns.
Most of their recent meetings have not produced over 2 goals in ninety minutes. So, under 3.5 goals at 1.40 will be the best bet in the clash for the punters.
