Galatasaray vs Hajduk Split
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Turk Telekom Stadyumu, Istanbul.
One of the most popular teams in Turkey has started the new campaign in a very nice fashion, winning a couple of domestic games and easily beating Neftchi in qualifying round number two.
Season 2019/2020 was full of disappointments for Galatasaray and their fans. The team not only failed to get involved into the title race in Super Lig, but also ended as 6th on the table. That granted them participation in Europa League qualifiers and anything but reaching the group stages would be labelled as another failure.
This time opponent is going to be slightly tougher – Hajduk Split from Croatia. Galata are still big favorites to take the win here at 1.55 odds.

Galatasaray vs Hajduk Split Prediction
Awful performances and stats on the road are the biggest reason why Galatasaray couldn’t compete with Istanbul Basaksehir and Trabzon in the previous campaign.
Matches at this stadium have been pretty decent, having ten wins, five draws and only two losses. The new campaign started with a 3-1 home win against Gaziantep, followed by a bit surprising 2-0 win against the reigning champions Basaksehir.
Radamel Falcao has been on fire lately, scoring three goals in the last three appearances. If you fancy betting on the goal scorers market, he should definitely be your pick number one. Galatasaray were eliminated from Europa League last year in the playoffs stage by Benfica.
Hajduk Split are competing in the qualifiers almost every year. Their results are quite inconsistent – there were games against high-profile opponents like Everton or Steaua which ended as draws, but yet, they have lost to Gzira United last season at home 3-1. We don’t see them posing any threat to in-form Galatasaray at this point.
