It’s been seldom in recent games where Hatayspor have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Hatayspor have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 12 goals along the way. We will just have to see if that trend will be sustained in this game.
Coming into this contest, Hatayspor are without a home win in the past 2 league matches.

Team News: Hatayspor
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Hatayspor boss Ömer Erdoğan to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Burak Camoglu (Injury to the ankle) will miss out. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Munir, Adama Traoré and Ayoub El Kaabi.
Team News: Galatasaray
Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim has a number of players out of action. Mbaye Diagne (Femoral Fracture), Omar Elabdellaoui (Fitness), Arda Turan (Foot Injury), Kaan Arslan (Hamstring Injury), Christian Luyindama (Unknown Injury), Fernando Muslera (Cruciate ligament stretch) and Ryan Babel (Unknown Injury) are not able to play. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Omar Elabdellaoui and Sofiane Feghouli.
When taking everything into account, Hatayspor will have their work cut out to register a score against this Galatasaray side who we think will likely manage to score & go ahead.
We’re going for a 0-1 victory for Galatasaray at the end of the match.
