Galatasaray vs Goztepe
Turkish Super Lig
Date: 22 December 2020, Tuesday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Türk Telekom Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Galatasaray’s unbeaten run came to an end with the away defeat at Fatih Karagumruk. Head-coach Fatih Terim had every reason to feel frustrated since the winner was hit 10 minutes deep into the added extra time.
They had 5 wins in the previous 6 and the defeat on Friday means that Galatasaray start their Tuesday’s match sitting 3 points behind surprise league leaders Alanyaspor.
Goztepe are coming on the back of consecutive defeats, first a high scoring thriller at Rizespor and then on the weekend to Hatayspor.
This is the first time they lost consecutive games this season and lost just once in the previous 11.
On the travels, Goztepe left a picture of being one of the toughest teams to beat, the loss against Rizespor their first this season, but won just 1 of the previous 5 with the remaining 4 ending in stalemates.
Galatasaray vs Goztepe Head-to-head
There are no draws in their 12 overall head-to-head meetings across all competition, but Gala won 10 of those.
At home, Galatasaray are victorious in all 6 and 5 of them came with a clear 2-goal margin.
The corresponding fixture of last season ended with a 3-1 scoreline.
Also, 4 of their last 5 h2h meetings at this ground saw over 3.5 goals, meantime 4 of the last 5 saw both teams scoring.
Galatasaray vs Goztepe Prediction
Fatih Terim’s men have been solid and consistent in the 2020/21 season and they are heavy favourites to win on Tuesday with a 100% win record to go by against this opposition.
We can expect some goals as well, since h2h stats points to this trend of high scoring affairs, so do 6 of the last 8 Super Lig fixtures of Gala ending with 3 or more goals.
