🗞️ Team News: Galatasaray
The Galatasaray boss Okan Buruk has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all coming into this game owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection. Nicolò Zaniolo will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
ℹ️ Team News: Sivasspor
Sivasspor manager Riza Çalımbay has some current player fitness concerns. Ziya Erdal (Knee Injury) and Murat Paluli (Shoulder Injury) are not able to play. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Dimitrios Goutas, Erdogan Yesilyurt, Fredrik Ulvestad and Mustapha Yatabaré.
When taking all factors into account, Sivasspor should have enough to get a goal against this Galatasaray team, but that is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re going for a very close game with a 2-1 victory for Galatasaray after 90 minutes. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
