Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor: Preview and Predictions

Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 1 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Turk Telekom Stadyumu (Istanbul).

The closing match of Sunday’s action in 27th round of Turkish Super Lig is going to be contested between Galatasaray and Trabzonspor. This is the derby match of the round in which the hosts want to keep the top spot, while the away side is looking forward to staying competitive for the Europa League spot.

The title race in this year’s edition of Super Lig is extremely exciting and currently Galatasaray are the top team being just one point above Istanbul Basaksehir, while Besiktas are four points behind them. Bafetimbi Gomis has been lethal for the oppositions’ goalkeepers and he’s scoring a goal per match in average. On the other hand, their defence is doing a pretty good job. Galatasaray allowed only one point to their opponents when playing in front of their fans which means they are almost perfect at home. Fenerbahce managed to break their three-match winning streak after holding them to a goalless draw. The hosts need to keep the perfect home record if they want to keep their top spot.

The visitors had a bad start of the season, but as we are near the end of the campaign, they managed to get to the 5th place. They have tied two straight wins and could snatch one of the places which will take them to Europa League. Trabzonspor have been involved in pretty high scoring matches this season, while they are very hard to crack when playing away from home. Although they have booked only four away victories, they have suffered only two defeats at away pitches. The visitors haven’t tasted a defeat in their last eight outings, which is something to be respected.

Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor: Head-to-head

Trabzonspor are enjoying a run of three straight wins over their rivals and since 2014 they have been very successful against Galatasaray. We haven’t seen a draw in their last ten clashes and those have been moderate scoring ones.

Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor: Prediction

This one is very tricky to predict, Galatasaray are favourites in this one, but they won’t have an easy job at all. We are going for a home win only because the hosts are perfect at home this season.

Trabzonspor are more than capable of scoring at least once, so the nets shouldn’t remain still after the final whistle.
