Galatasaray vs Kasimpasa
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 14 September 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Turk Telekom Stadyumu, Istanbul.
Top two teams in Super Lig will take on each other in the first game of the Matchday No 5 on Friday evening at Turk Telekom Stadyumu.
Whilst the reigning champions were expected to make such a strong start to the new campaign, not many experts saw the Apaches at the very top of the standings with a perfect record after four rounds of the competition.
Can Kasimpasa take advantage of the momentum and produce an upset against the heavyweights?
The visitors will clearly come into the game in higher spirits following Galata’s shocking 4-0 defeat away at Trabzon before the international break.
Such a devastating loss came out of nowhere as Fatih Terim’s troops have previously won three on the bounce at the start of the season.
Galatasaray vs Kasimpasa: Head-to-head
- Galata were super dominant in the history of head to head matches against the Apaches.
- Cimbom won 51 and lost only 5 of 67 encounters with Kasimpasa over the course of history.
- However, the previous H2H encounter saw Kasimpasa pick up a 2-1 victory n February this year at Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadyumu.
- Both teams scored in seven of last eight head to head outings.
Galatasaray vs Kasimpasa: Prediction
Kemal Ozde can be thrilled with his tewam’s attacking form at the start of the season. Kasimpasa bagged two or more goals in each of four games so far, inspired by the red-hot Mbaye Diagne who already has as many as 6 goals to his name.
The Senegalese forward bagged at least a goal in each of last 11 appearances for Kasimpasa, a streak which includes the finish of the previous season as well as pre-season friendlies. He was the one who opened the scoring in a 2-1 victory over Ankaragucu two weeks ago.
Knowing about the high-scoring trend in H2H games as well as Galatasaray’s defensive holes fully exploited by Trabzon’s forwards before the international break, we just have to back a goal fest when two sides meet on Friday evening.
