Genclerbirligi vs Galatasaray
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 9 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Akara Ondokuz Mayis Stadyumu (Ankara).
Istanbul Basaksehir have managed to survive Yeni Malatyaspor test on Friday to overtake Galatasaray at the very top of the Super Lig standings. Cimbom thus have an imperative to get the result away at the relegation strugglers Genclerbirligi in order to regain the leadership. Fatih Terim’s men should not have too many troubles easing past the struggling opposition here, even though the host are also desperate for points in the relegation battle.
Nonetheless, one fan hardly expect salvation points to come against the likes of Galatasaray who have one of the most talented squads in the competition. The visitors have league’s top scorer Bafetimbi Gomis in their ranks, The Frenchman has bagged an impressive 26-goal tally so far in the season. He should have plenty of space to keep his excellent spell of form going here given that the hosts have had huge issues with keeping things tight t the back lately.
Genclerbirligi have conceded as many as four in last weekend’s devastating loss away at Yeni Malatyaspor. They are winless in last five league ties and they0ve only scored two goals in last four games in Super Lig. The safe zone is just one point away, but Umit Ozat and his men should really seek for precious points against someone else.

Genclerbirligi vs Galatasaray: Prediction
The visitors will head into this in much higher spirit after winning five and drawing one of last six games in all competitions.
