Galatasaray vs Fatih Karagumruk Prediction & Match Preview

Galatasaray vs Fatih Karagumruk
Turkey Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Turk Telekom Stadyumu, Istanbul.

Galatasaray significantly halted their push for the Super Lig title by losing back-to-back fixtures to Rizespor and Hatayspor. The situation looks much worse as Fatih Terim’s troops shipped seven goals in these two defeats. Cimbom will be desperate to bounce back and get their campaign up and running with a victory on Saturday afternoon when top-half Fatih Karagumruk come to visit Turk Telekom Stadyumu.

Fatih’s visit will represent anything but an easy task for the league heavyweights, especially at this moment, after a couple of such desperate defensive performances. The visitors will go into the tie in much higher spirits after winning two and drawing one of the last three league games without conceding a goal in the process.

Galatasaray vs Fatih Karagumruk Head-to-head

  • Galatasaray are massive favourites here if we take a look at the head to head tradition.
  • They have dominated this match-up with 11 wins, 2 draws, and 3 defeats in 16 clashes against Kara Kirmizi.
  • Cimbom have been particularly impressive in the home encounters with Fatih Karagumruk (7 wins and 1 draw in 8 games).
  • Each of the last five H2H encounters between the two sides produced three or more goals.

Galatasaray vs Fatih Karagumruk Prediction

We are not attracted by the 1.44 odds offered for the home win pick at all here. Fatih hold the sky-high 7th position in the league standings and they are well capable of hurting the already-vulnerable Galatasaray side here. They did perform somewhat poorer away from home recently, having won just one of the last six league fixtures on the road.

However, Fatih Terim’s troops have been extremely vulnerable at the back recently, allowing at least two goals in three of the last five home outings across competitions. They shipped three or more in each of the last two league matches and we would by no means be surprised to see the in-form visitors (heavy underdogs) getting on the scoresheet on Saturday. We will be brave enough and back the draw at the odds of 4.20, while the Both Teams To Score looks fantastic at the odds of 1.72.
