Galatasaray vs Denizlispor Match Preview
Gala are the defending champions, but this time around, they have failed to keep their levels up. As of now, they are placed seventh in the table, and are trailing by ten points.
The team has shown glimpses of their dominant past once in a while during this campaign, but the team needs to be much more consistent if they are to raise a meaningful defense of their crown.
Galatasaray vs Denizlispor Prediction
Galatasaray had taken on Antalyaspor the last match-day, and delivered a massive 5-0 win to satisfy their fans. Meanwhile, Denizlispor messed up a 0-2 lead on the road the prior game week, as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Ankaragucu.
This Sunday, by all means Galatasaray are the favorite. They have the home advantage, and are desperate to go after Sivasspor, the current league-toppers.
Moreover, they were unbeaten in seven of their last ten official games, and had won their latest league game by a mammoth scoreline of 5-0.
In addition, at home, they were unbeaten in 20 of their last 24 appearances, and two of these four losses had come against Real Madrid, and PSG, in the Champions League. Another one of the defeats had been against Istanbul Basaksehir, their arch rivals.
On the other hand, Denizlispor are winless in their last three match-ups, and are placed in the bottom half of the table.
Furthermore, Gala have dominated this opponent over the years, and have sufficient stats to back this claim. In fact, Galatasaray won eight of the last nine h2h encounters, and also won the last five such battles at this venue.
The team also scored two or more goals in eight of the preceding nine h2h battles, and the last Gala lost at home against this opponent was back in 2003.
Taking into account these findings, it’s concluded that the reigning champions, with aid of the home advantage, have a great opportunity to post a convincing win this Sunday.
