This intact produce goals and some end of end attacking football towards the end of the final whistle. But with this kind of home form, I can see Galatasaray edging a narrow win here. One of the main reason is the scoring form of Bafetimbi Gomis. The French striker netted 27 goals from 29 appearances for Gala this season, 2 more than combined goals scored by Besiktas’ top scorers Talisca and Ryan Babel.
