Konyaspor vs Galatasaray Prediction

Konyaspor picked up what was only their fourth win of the season by taking Ankaragucu on the road last week. The hosts were in line to share the spoils in that latter matchup though after both teams failed to break the deadlock in regulation time.

However, Levan Shengelia stepped up to score the only goal of the game, deep into stoppage time, handing his side a much-deserved win at the last blast of the whistle.

With just eighteen points so far, the home team are currently a lot closer to falling into the relegation zone, than they are in catching up with Galatasaray.

Meanwhile, the visitors have been tasting nothing but success in their last two games in the Super Lig. Impressively, they have also admitted defeat just once in their past six fixtures in all competitions.

It is also worth mentioning that Galatasaray have not been at the losing end in any of their previous thirteen trips here on the trot.

Furthermore, home advantage has just not been working its charm for Konyaspor as of late. Their last and only win at home was the 2-1 victory over Kayserispor way back in late September.

As such, the win is more than just likely to swing in favor of Galatasaray in this one.

In addition, despite coping poorly at home, it needs saying that the hosts have been tough to breach inside their own defensive third. They have kept a clean sheet twice so far, and have conceded just eight goals in the process as well.

Moreover, Galatasaray have been struggling to get things going in their respective outings, and have found the back of the net just eight times.

Taking into account that three of their past four h2h fixtures here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect Galatasaray to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
