Galatasaray vs Antalyaspor Match Preview

Galatasaray host Antalyaspor for their Matchday 17 clash on Saturday desperate for points to catch up with the top of the table, sitting ten points behind pace-setters Sivasspor with a very unpredictable spell of results seen across competitions since mid-November. They’ve seen a disappointing trip to Goztepe (2-1) last week and Fatih Terim now needs a quick fix.

Cimbom have struggled to impress at Turk Telekom Stadium too and they’ve seen just one win in their last five outings here, with defensive slip-ups proving costly. Indeed, the attacking line led by Ryan Babel felt unconvincing as Andone sits out with an injury and Falcao only made his return earlier this month.

Still, Antalyaspor have been far from their best and seem like a good opportunity to earn a pick-me-up, as they only come into the match with three consecutive draws behind them – held off by Alanyaspor (0-0), Eyupspor (2-2), and Ankaragucu (2-2). They failed to capitalize on a more lenient schedule and still sit in the relegation zone.

Scorpions will want to end the year on a positive note and escape the red zone just as much, but their goalscoring woes on the road feel very worrying. They’ve failed to find the net on four of their last five trips and it feels Stjepan Tomas’ men should be in over their heads now once again.

We will thus back Galatasaray to bounce and bag all three points on the day, going for a Home win to Nil at 11/8 with BetVictor and hoping to finally see a steady defensive line at Turk Telekom Stadium.

We don’t really feel Cimbom are over the troubles of their own in the final third and with that in mind, we hope not to see many goals overall. We’re backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with Paddy Power, which does feel like a solid approach to the fixture by itself.
