Sivasspor vs Galatasaray Prediction
The Yigidos recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Ankaragucu. It was their second win a row, and marked their return back to form, after dropping some very valuable points. However, these lost points have put them under pressure, and importantly, resulted in them being replaced at the top by Basaksehir.
In the meantime, Gala recorded a 3-0 victory at home over Genclerbirligi. It was their fifth win on the trot, and the ninth in the past ten attempts as well. This incredible form has shown their determination to get to the top-most spot, after they uncharacteristically made a slow start to their season.
As things stand, Gala hold the upper hand. They are the defending champions, and as per current form, they are the absolute best team in the competition. Keep note that the team had scored thrice or more in six of their prior eight fixtures, and that they had also won the reverse fixture (where once again they scored three goals).
In addition, they also scored thrice or more in five of the past six h2h match-ups, and recorded 13 of the former 18 such wins. Also, they have not once failed to score at this venue in the preceding eleven years as well. Finally, take note that the counterparts were winless in seven of their prior nine overall matches, and in three of their last four home games.
As such, expect a win for the in-form Galatasaray this Sunday. However, do note that the Yigidos have the home advantage, and that they too are in hunt for the title. Moreover, they have never once failed to score goals at this ground in a Super Lig fixture this season. Consequentially, expect them to score at least once this Sunday against Gala.
