Gaziantep vs Galatasaray Prediction
Gaziantep climbed up the table with back to back wins against smaller teams until they met the fairly big guns in the league. A recent win against Ankaragucu has kept them at the ninth spot in the table. Even as such, the hosting team will be worried about their form, at home, in the table. GFK is winless in the last three home matches in the campaign with two draws.
Their recent home match with Alanyaspor ending in a 1-1 draw. It was Kana-Biyik J. at the last minute that scored the equalizer to avoid their second league-loss at home. The host is experiencing a problem with the strikers as 63% ball possession had only 3 shots on target. Also, their rain of attacks with 9 corner kicks could not find them a winning goal in the match.
On the other hand, the reigning champion is at the 7th spot in the table with 4 wins and 2 losses in the 10 league appearances. The Lions has stayed unbeaten at home while losing two out of five away matches. In their previous clash, Gaziantep encountered a loss while visiting Besiktas in a 1-0 score. Even so, the Lions had 58% ball possession and 14 goal attempts in the encounter.
Even so, Galatasaray has fared against top-rated opponents in the table, unlike Gaziantep. So, the guest can be counted on to perform well against a weaker side. Hence, the Lions has more chance of winning the encounter.
Apart from that, Gaziantep has shown an average of 1.6 goals per match while the Lions secured an average of 1.1 goals per match in the campaign. Hence, we can expect both teams to score in the game.
