Istanbul Basaksehir vs Galatasaray
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 28 June 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium.
This will be one of the most anticipated game of the season in the Turkish Super Lig. Two of the best teams in the league are taking on each other, and that too in the final phase of the campaign with the title on the line. By all means expect a fierce set of ninety minutes.
These two arch-rivals are vying for the Turkish crown, and the result of the fixture will be closely watched by Trabzonspor, who were displaced from the top this last match-day.
In regards to result, considering the recent form of Okan Buruk’s men, their win in the reverse fixture, the struggles (comparatively) of the Lions, and the incredible form of Buruk’s men at home, it seems as if Istanbul Basaksehir are the favorites.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Galatasaray: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 0-1 win for Buruk’s men.
- Five of the former seven wins had gone to the same team as well.
- Seven of the previous twelve encounters saw the Lions conceding two or more goals.
- It’s been five years since the guests have won at this stadium.
- The hosts scored four or more goals in two of the past three clashes at this venue.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Galatasaray: Prediction
Buruk’s men are placed at the top of the table, and with a lead of two points as well. Just six more match-days remain, and if they are able to hold on, it will be another title added to their shelves.
So far, Buruk’s men have scored the second-most number of goals, and they have conceded the third-least number of goals as well. In addition, they are on an eight-game unbeaten run(of which seven were wins), and the sole draw had come against the then toppers Trabzonspor.
They are also on a seven-match winning run at home, and their sole loss since August at this venue had come in the Europa League. On the other hand, the Lions are on a four-fixture winless run, and they were winless in 17 of their previous 24 road trips as well.
On top of all that, Buruk’s men have a great h2h record over this opponent, and especially so in the recent past. Considering these factors, expect a winning performance from Istanbul Basaksehir this Sunday.
