Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 16.00 UK/ 17.00 CET
Venue: Türk Telekom Arena (Istanbul).
We are in for a showdown between two teams who love to score goals. Both these sides rank at the top in case of goals scored. Aslanlar is in the first position with 38 goals, and their counterparts are just below with 36. The record extends to home-games too, as the Lions boast of the first place in that stat also.
Unal Karaman’s men currently sit just outside the top-four, narrowingly missing out on a trip to Europe. A win in this tie would open a world of opportunities to the team, considering almost all in contention for the Europa League is having tough fixtures this weekend.
Gala will be looking to put some distance behind themselves and the teams chasing them. They will call upon their ever dependable frontline for the job.
