Galatasaray vs Istanbul Basaksehir
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Türk Telekom Stadyumu.

Aslanlar have been one of the best teams in the competition for the past several years, and they have been so this season as well. As of now they are placed third in the table, and are in unreal form.

They have so far conceded the least number of goals of all the teams in the league, and only one other squad has scored more goals than them this campaign.

With the season entering its second half, it’s time for Fatih Terim’s men to kick into higher gear. They are currently lagging by three points behind toppers Fenerbahce.

Meanwhile, the Gray Owls have been one of the worst teams in the competition this season. They have won just six times this whole league campaign, and only two other squads have let in more goals than them in the contest.

Going on, in recent times, Aslanlar have been the better team in h2h clashes too.

Likely, expect Galatasaray to emerge victorious this Tuesday at the Turk Telekom.

Aslanlar had won 13 of their preceding 18 matches, and they had scored a total of 20 goals from the past seven match-ups. They had also won their latest appearance at home with a 6-1 scorecard, and have lost just twice at home after 2019.

On the other hand, their counterparts are on a five-fixture winless run, and they had conceded five goals in their latest game alone. They were also winless in nine of their former thirteen fixtures, and had conceded two or more goals in 13 of their past 19 road trips.

Finally, Terim’s men also have a great h2h record against this opponent in recent years.
