Battle for the title in Super Lig has never been this interesting. The difference between 1st placed Sivasspor and Besiktas who are 7th is only six points!

Galatasaray are in between these teams and victory on Sunday’s matchday against Yeni Malatyaspor could be super-helpful to narrow the gap. They had great warm up match during the mid-week in the national cup beating Alanya at this ground quite easily 3-1 FT.

The current odds on home win are at 1.44.

Galatasaray vs Yeni Malatyaspor Prediction

Fatih Terim is probably super happy with the current state of absent or injured players. Only Christian Luyindama will have to miss it. Overall, the squad is doing great in 2020, having won six out of the last seven encounters across competitions. The only defeat was in the cup in early February.

Adem Buyuk is currently in red-hot streak, scoring four goals in the last three matches. Definitely consider backing him in the goal scorers market.

Malatyaspor are stuck in the middle of the table without any big European ambitions. Their record on the road is not looking that bad with three victories, four losses and four draws, but it is still hard to expect from them to put up some massive resistance here.

Going for the home win here at 1.44 definitely seems like a big banker bet. There are some alternative options to consider such HT/FT win or win in handicap. Malatya should go down easily in Istanbul.

As for the goals market, Over 2.5 FT makes a lot of sense considering the stats.
