Goztepe vs Galatasaray
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 19 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Bornova Doganlar Stadi (Izmir).
The closing match of the season in Turkish Super Lig is going to be contested between Goztepe and Galatasaray.
The hosts are one of the biggest overachievers this season. Although they were promoted at the beginning of the season, Goztepe managed not only to secure the survival, but also to finish in the top half of the table, probably on the 6th spot. Tamer Tuna’s side hasn’t lost in the last five rounds and they are just three points behind Trabzonspor who is sitting on the 5th place. Home side allowed only three defeats at their ground and any side finds it hard to play in Izmir.
This is a key match for Galatasaray in their title bid. They are currently top placed team and they are three points ahead of Basaksehir. They need just a point from this one to officially secure the title. Bafetimbi Gomis and the lads have been one of the most efficient sides in the competition, and they managed to find the back of the net 74 times. However, their away performances were not o great as they suffered seven defeats at away pitches.
Goztepe vs Galatasaray: Head-to-head
These two sides played seven head to head matches in total and Goztepe managed to celebrate a win only once, back in 2002. Except that one, they haven’t been able to avoid the defeat in the other six. Every match played in Izmir remained under 2.5 margin.
Goztepe vs Galatasaray: Prediction
Galatasaray are enjoying a great streak of five straight wins in the Super Lig and they should be able to verify the title with a victory in this one. Although the hosts have been performing very well lately, this match doesn’t have any special importance for them.
As both sides have been involved in high scoring matches lately, this one could be the first clash played with Goztepe as the hosts which ended with at least three goals. Home side will be certainly searching for the chance to produce something in this match.
