The Süper Lig tie at Türk Telekom Stadyumu on Monday will see home side Galatasaray playing Alanyaspor.
All Galatasaray v Alanyaspor match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Galatasaray won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 1-0 Süper Lig losing effort in their last game against Kasimpasa.
Yusuf Erdoğan (45') was the scorer for Kasimpasa.
Their more recent scorelines reveal that things are going according to plan in the Galatasaray rearguard. Cimbom have given the opposition little, with the tally of goals that have gone in at their end during their past 6 matches standing at 4. We will see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Going into this one, Galatasaray are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
Alanyaspor will go into the game following on from a 6-0 Süper Lig win versus Hatayspor in their last outing.
For Alanyaspor, the goals were scored by Anastasios Bakasetas (18'), Davidson (23', 67', 77'), Adam Bareiro (34') and Francois Moubandje (45').
A succession of very capable performances from the Alanyaspor defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their past 6 fixtures overall. During the same period, their own forwards have managed to score 14.
Ahead of this meeting, Alanyaspor are unbeaten in their last 3 away league matches.
Head to head
A look at their prior head to head clashes going back to 25/11/2017 tells us that Galatasaray have won 4 of these and Alanyaspor 1, with the tally of draws standing at 1.
An aggregate of 21 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 14 of them from Cimbom and 7 being from Alanyaspor. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.5.
Team News: Galatasaray
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Fernando Muslera (Tibia and Fibula Fracture) misses out. Valentine Ozornwafor is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our view, Cimbom will probably go for a 4-1-4-1 system for this one featuring Fatih Öztürk, Gökay Güney, Marcos Teixeira Marcão, Christian Luyindama, Omar Elabdellaoui, Ryan Donk, Emre Kilinc, Younes Belhanda, Arda Turan, Sofiane Feghouli and Radamel Falcao.
Team News: Alanyaspor
From a largely healthy group, there is just a single fitness issue for the Alanyaspor manager Çağdaş Atan to be concerned with. Efecan Karaca (Adductor problems) won’t be playing here.
There’s a good chance that Alanyaspor might begin the game with a 4-3-3 system, starting Jose Marafona, Juanfran Moreno Fuertes, Giorgos Tzavellas, Steven Caulker, Jacques Francois Moubandje, Salih Ucan, Fatih Aksoy, Manolis Siopis, Anastasios Bakasetas, Adam Bareiro and Davidson.
We believe that Alanyaspor will need to push hard to break down this Galatasaray outfit who we think might well manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
That’s why we have predicted a 1-0 victory for Galatasaray at the end of this game.
Expecting it to be tight.
