Team News: Galatasaray
Sacha Boey (Hamstring Injury), Arda Turan (Ankle Injury) and Omar Elabdellaoui (Eye Injury) won’t be available for Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Omar Elabdellaoui, Berkan Kutlu and Marcão.
Team News: Konyaspor
Konyaspor manager İlhan Palut has some current player fitness concerns. Sokol Cikalleshi (Corona virus) and Ahmed Hassan (Unknown Injury) will not be playing here.
We believe that Galatasaray have it within them to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
Conversely, Konyaspor might well find it a difficult task to break down their defence but we can see them hitting back at some stage here, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a decent 3-1 margin for Galatasaray at full-time.
