Gaziantep vs Galatasaray
Turkish Super Lig
Date: 20 March 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: Gaziantep Stadyumu.
Galatasaray will complete a very tough sequence of matches in a short time-span on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Gaziantep Stadyumu to battle bottom-half rivals Gaziantep FK in the 30th round of Super Lig.
The team led by Spanish manager Domenec Torrent (took over Fatih Terim in January) have played four games since March 5th.
They offered a surprisingly strong resistance against Barcelona in the last 16 round of UEFA Europa League, losing just 1-2 on aggregate.
Galatasaray even had an early lead against the Spanish heavyweights in the reverse fixture of this tie in Thursday evening but Pedri and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagged goals to send the Catalans through to the quarterfinal of the competition.
The match against Blaugrana came only three days after a big 2-1 victory over bitter rivals Besiktas in the Istanbul derby.
Winger Kerem Akturkoglu was phenomenal on the occasion as his early brace made the difference between the two teams on Monday night.
Galatasaray have a nice chance to offer another strong performance on Sunday afternoon here Gaziantep FK whose form has been in a massive decline of late.
Gaziantep FK are winless in seven consecutive games in all competitions, five of which they lost. Erol Bulut’s men conceded at least two goals in each of the last four matches across competitions, including Monday’s disappointing 2-1 loss at relegation-threatened Giresunspor.
