Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 2nd November 2018
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Turk Telekom Arena, Istanbul.
Galatasaray, one of the best teams in the Turkey Super Lig, hosts Fenerbahce, a team struggling to keep themselves just above the relegation cut-off.
The home team will be frustrated with themselves for throwing away their three points against Yeni Malatyaspor at their home, last weekend.
The home team then, put two goals against Galatasaray while keeping a clean sheet for themselves. The team from Istanbul will have to overcome the beating they took to their psyche before getting on track.
Fenerbahce will be the far more aggrieved team of the two as they have to deal with the 1-3 loss to Ankaragucu while playing at their own home ground. While till late into the second half, things seemed evenly poised, two quickfire goals in the second half changed the equation.
Erin Derdiyok has been the main man for Galatasaray in front of the goal, while without a doubt, the best player of the team has been S.Aziz.
Y Benzia and Souza have been the two mischief makers-in-chief for opponents from the other side. Andre Ayew has been the top scorer for Fenerbahce so far.

Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce Prediction
The home team comes out the overwhelming favorites for this tie. With the added advantage of playing in front of their fans, Galatasaray has also been exceptional at home recently. They are currently on a run of seven unbeaten matches at home. They also had five wins in a row just last month.
Also, Fenerbahce has been particularly terrible on the road. One win in last 11 matches is just absolutely abysmal, and even Fenerbahce fans won’t be having many hopes for this fixture.
Expect a total and emphatic victory for the hosts. Brave bettors can go for the Over 2.5 goals option too @ 2.00 (1/1). Fenerbahce has a tendency to concede a lot against pacy forwards, which Galatasaray has in plenty.
