In between two Super Lig rounds, Galata have another important fixture in the cup when they will be looking to capitalize on the 2-2 away draw from the first leg against Konya. The hosts remain massive favourites to advance into the semis and it would indeed be a disaster for them to allow the elimination after netting two goals on the road seven days ago.

Terim’s main woes are connected with the lack of the meticulousness in his defensive line which allowed two goals in each of last two outings with Konya and Siva. Keeping things tight at the back will be the main challenge and the key to success for the hosts here, but they’ll need to be super careful since the Anatolian Eagle announced strong ambitions in the second part of the season by signing Super Lig’s third scorer Adis Jahovic from Goztepe.

Jahovic has 14 goals to his name so far in the campaign and he was on target in the first leg draw played last week at Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu. The Macedonian striker also found the back of the net when his former team Goztepe last faced Galatasaray in late-December.

Galatasaray vs Konyaspor: Head-to-head

The head to head stats entirely favour Galatasaray who have been more than dominant against Konya over the course of history.

Cimbom have won 15 and drawn 2 of 17 home outings against the Anatolian Eagle.

Before the mentioned 2-2 draw, Galata were on a three-win run in matches with Konya.

Galatasaray vs Konyaspor: Prediction

Everything suggest a super thrilling encounter packed with goals. Even though Konya’s strengthened attacking line might impose a threat here, we just have to respect Galatasaray’s dominance in H2H clashes at Turk Telekom Stadyumu.

Additionally, Cimbom have been almost impeccable in front of the home crowd in this term of Super LIg as they’ve won 11 and drawn of last 12 home outings.

The stand-out bet would thus be Galatasaray to win & BTTS at the odds of 2.75, while you will clearly make no mistake backing the Over 2.5 goals FT pick at 1.60.
