Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce Prediction and Analysis

Gala has looked pretty formidable domestically for most parts of the campaign. Disregarding their 4 match winless run from August to September their only loss came against another Istanbul rival, Besiktas.

They are currently 4th in the Super Lig, 9 points behind league leaders Trabzonspor. With 2 wins and 2 draws in the Europa League they are on top of their group ahead of Lazio, Marseille and Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Yellow Canaries were off to an amazing start to the league campaign losing just a game prior to the international break in October. They are since winless in the league with 3 losses and a draw.

They are currently 7th in the league level on points with 6th place Besiktas and a point behind their opponents for this Sunday. With 1 win and 2 draws they are third in Group D of the Europa League behind Olympiakos and Frankfurt.

The hosts are favourites to seal all 3 points and narrow down their deficit in the h2h games record, as they have just a loss in their last 12 games across all competitions. Meanwhile, for the visitors, the Derby could not have come at a worse time as they are winless in their last 4 league matches and have just a win in their last 6 matches across all competitions.

Contrary to the recent trend in h2h fixtures between the sides, I have backed both teams to score as the hosts and visitors have scored at least a goal in their last 10 and 7 matches respectively.
