View all of the Galatasaray v Alanyaspor predictions, poll and stats below including the latest game odds.
Galatasaray will be hoping to bounce back here after a 2-1 Super Lig loss in their previous game against Hatayspor.
In that match, Galatasaray had 71% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 7 on target. The only player to score for Galatasaray was Wilfried Zaha (28'). For their opponents, Hatayspor had 6 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Rigoberto Rivas (14') and Didier Lamkel Zé (55') scored for Hatayspor.
Galatasaray have not been the best at stopping their opponents of late, but they have also done enough to hit the back of the net themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, Galatasaray have conceded in 5 of them in addition to getting on the scoresheet in 6 of those games.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Gaziantep in Super Lig action, Alanyaspor will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, Alanyaspor had 73% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Gaziantep got 11 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Denis Drăguş (45'), Alexandru Maxim (45') and Brayan Riascos (95') scored for Gaziantep.
It has become apparent that Alanyaspor have suffered from a shortage of goals in their past six games, contributing the disappointing return of just 3. In those matches, Alanyaspor have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 12. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Pre-game facts show that Alanyaspor:
- remain undefeated by Galatasaray when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- have not won away from home in their last 6 league matches.

Team News: Galatasaray
The Galatasaray boss Okan Buruk doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this match owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from.
In our view, Cimbom look set to use the 4-2-3-1 system for this game with N. Fernando Muslera, Sacha Boey, Kaan Ayhan, Davinson Sánchez, Kazimcan Karatas, Tanguy NDombèlé, Lucas Torreira, Baris Yilmaz, Dries Mertens, Wilfried Zaha and Mauro Icardi.
Team News: Alanyaspor
Due to a fully healthy squad ready to go, the Alanyaspor boss Fatih Tekke has no fitness concerns at all before this match.
There’s a good chance that Alanyaspor could decide to elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation by sending out Ertugrul Taskiran, Nuno Lima, Fatih Aksoy, Furkan Bayir, Jure Balkovec, Leroy Fer, Nicolas Janvier, Efecan Karaca, Pione Sisto, Carlos Eduardo and Oguz Aydin.
We’re of the opinion that Alanyaspor have enough to get a goal against this Galatasaray outfit, although that possibly won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We reckon that it will be a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Galatasaray at the end of this one. Looking forward to this.
