Team News: Galatasaray
Henry Onyekuru (Thigh Muscle Strain), Falcao (Facial Fracture) and DeAndre Yedlin (Torn ankle ligament) will not be able to play for Galatasaray gaffer Fatih Terim.
Team News: Konyaspor
Konyaspor boss İlhan Palut has to currently contend with reduced team options. Marin Anicic (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Eray Birnican (Thigh Muscle Strain), Deni Milosevic (Calf Strain) and Alper Uludag (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Abdülkerim Bardakci and Nejc Skubic.
Galatasaray will more than likely fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they meet Konyaspor, who will be up against it to break down their defence.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a controlled 2-0 winning score for Galatasaray at the end of the 90 minutes.
