Team News: Gençlerbirliği
Gençlerbirliği boss Özcan Bizati will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash owing to a fully healthy group available to choose from.
Team News: Galatasaray
Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim has some current player fitness concerns. Oghenekaro Etebo (Corona virus), Fatih Öztürk (Corona virus), Valentine Ozornwafor (Corona virus) and Christian Luyindama (Corona virus) are not ready for selection.
We feel that in this game, Gençlerbirliği will likely create enough chances to put one past this Galatasaray outfit, however a single goal possibly won’t quite be enough to give them the result that they want.
We can see a 1-2 victory for Galatasaray at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
