Trabzonspor vs Galatasaray
Turkey Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 26 December 2020
Kick-Off at 16.00 UK
Venue: Medical Park Stadyumu, Trabzon.
The most anticipated duel in Turkish Super Lig this Saturday is taking place at Medical Park where Trabzonspor is locking horns with the biggest title contender Galatasaray. Hosts have been heavily underperforming this season, sitting in the middle of the table after gathering only 20 points from 14 games.
That’s nowhere close to the last year’s campaign when Trabzon competed with Basaksehir for 1st place all until the last few weeks. Can they bring down big dogs Galata?
The most recent form is not looking bad at all, securing six points with back to back victories versus Rizespor and Hatayspor.
All in all, we should witness one hell of a match. Visitors are warm favorites for the win at 2.10 odds.
Trabzonspor vs Galatasaray Head-to-head
A big majority of recent head to head clashes between these two opponents were extremely tight and usually decided by one goal. There were 118 games so far and Galatasaray have big 54-39 lead in terms of victories.
Trabzonspor defeated Galatasaray in Istanbul last season 3-1, while match at this stadium ended without a winner 1-1. Alexander Sorloth scored in both of those games for Trabzon, but he has made a move to RB Leipzig.
Last six games between these two teams have always ended with three or more goals.
Trabzonspor vs Galatasaray Prediction
The worst streak for Trabzonspor was in mid-October when they were consecutively defeated by Istanbul Basaksehir, Fenerbahce and Kasimpasa. Consistency was established recently though – they have four victories and two draws in the last six domestic outings. None of those was a convincing win though.
Poor efficiency has been the main issue so far as they bagged only 16 goals in 14 matches. Fans were definitely expecting more from Benik Afobe who scored only three goals so far.
Galatasaray have spilled five points in the last month. Unexpected loss happened against Fatih Karagumruk on the road, while they drew at home versus Kayseri. The other three performances were outstanding, scoring total of 10 goals in duels against Rizespor, Hatayspor and Goztepe (won all three).
Approaching this match through the goals market is definitely the safest option.
