Galatasaray are leaving for the capital city to square off with Osmanlispor in the 2nd round of Turkish Super Lig.
Osmanlispor got off to a bad start of the season. They played the season opening match away against Yeni Malatyaspor and lost 3 – 1. If Maxso hadn’t scored the only goal for Osmanlispor, seconds before the blowing of the whistle, it would have been a clean-sheets win. With 0 points, they are sitting at the bottom of the league table.
As expected, Galata earned three points from the season opening match. They hosted Kayserispor and won 4 – 1. Their recent transfer, attacker Gomis, assisted Belhanda with the second goal, and scored third and fourth himself. They are currently first ranked in the league table

Osmanlispor vs Galatasaray: Prediction
Being eliminated from UEFA Europe League, Galatasaray can focus all their attention on the Super Lig. They are definitely expected to return from the capital city with 3 points. Still, Osmanlispor will surely try and take all the advantages of the home terrain, and we can expect goals on both sides of the pitch,
