Galatasaray vs Kasimpasa
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 13 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Türk Telekom Arena (Istanbul).
Last season Galatasaray ensured the league title with an astonishing 69 points, which was incidentally 30 more than their opponents for the day. The 2018-19 campaign witnessed one of the tightest league races ever in the Super Lig, at the end of which Gala trumped over Basaksehir, and Kasimpasa ended with two extra points over the cut-off line.
At present, while the champions are picking themselves up after a slow start, their guests for the day have not changed much from their preceding campaign. Kasimpasa drew their opener and then went on to lose their next two match-ups, to gain a spot in the relegation zone in the initial stages itself.

Galatasaray vs Kasimpasa Prediction
The reigning champions have the home advantage, and they are determined to make amends for their slow start. And what better opponent for the occasion than the incoming Kasimpasa, who conceded the most number of goals in the previous edition of the tournament.
Moreover, previous encounters between these two have been almost entirely dominated by the title-holders, and especially at this venue. In fact, the combined scorecard for the most-recent two such battles is 8-2, in favor of Gala. Also, seven of the previous nine encounters at this stadium saw the hosts registering the win.
Finally, the hosts are unbeaten at this ground in the last ten attempts, and registered eight wins in the process, while their opposite number was winless in 13 of their former 15 road trips.
Perse, by all means, expect a scintillating performance by the defending champions.
