Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 5 July 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET

The two teams could be termed as the best in the league, and at present, the both of them are desperate for points. Especially in the offensive side of the pitch, Huseyin Cimsir’s men have been the best in the whole league.

They are also just two points below toppers Basaksehir, and in order to keep up with the title race, they need the win this Sunday. Meanwhile, the Lions are not only the defending champions, but as of now, they are furiously chasing a Champions League ticket.

As such, expect the in-form squads to go after the three points with all vigor, and turn this clash into a goal-fest.

Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor: Prediction

Cimsir’s men have been the best team in terms of goal-scoring in the competition. Not only have they scored 65 goals, while only three other squads have even touched the 50-goal mark.

They are also on a 15-match unbeaten run, and they remained so in 22 of their previous 23 games as well. And on the road, they have not faced a single league loss in the past eight months.

On the other hand, their counterparts are the reigning title-holders of the league, and they have lost a single Super Lig match in the last six months. Most importantly, they have a 100% unbeaten record at home in 2020, and in the process even recorded a nine-game winning streak.

Going on, they are desperately chasing a CL ticket, which is currently one point away, while the guests of the day are furiously going after the top-most spot.

Taking into account the form of these two squads, as well as their determination to go after their objectives, expect the encounter to have a lot of goals.
