Team News: Galatasaray
Marcão (Thigh Muscle Strain), Iñaki Peña (Unknown Injury), Omar Elabdellaoui (Unknown Injury) and Fatih Öztürk (Vestibular disorder) will not be able to play for Galatasaray boss Domènec Torrent.
We think that Cimbom may well use the 4-1-4-1 formation with N. Fernando Muslera, Sacha Boey, Victor Nelsson, Isik Kaan Arslan, Patrick Van Aanholt, Taylan Antalyali, Emre Kilinc, Berkan Kutlu, Alexandru Cicaldau, Kerem Aktürkoglu and Mostafa Mohamed.
Team News: Adana Demirspor
Adana Demirspor manager Vincenzo Montella has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Jonas Svensson (Unknown Injury), Loïc Rémy (Unknown Injury) and Benjamin Stambouli (Unknown Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Enock Barwuah cannot play in this game through suspension.
It’s our belief that Mavi Şimşekler appear most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting Arijanet Muric, Ismail Cokcalis, Samet Akaydin, Tayyib Talha Sanuc, Joher Khadim Rassoul, Gökhan Inler, Sinan Kurt, Birkir Bjarnason, Yunus Akgün, Younes Belhanda and Mario Balotelli.
We feel that Galatasaray are likely to be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
At the same time, Adana Demirspor could well find it tough to make a breakthrough but we can see them managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
We’re therefore anticipating a fairly comfortable 3-1 margin for Galatasaray at the conclusion of the game.
