Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor Match Preview
Galatasaray have not lost at home in their domestic league since May 2017 and we do not expect that to change when they face Trabzonspor this weekend.
Turkey’s most successful club over the last 25 years, Galatasaray are struggling to retain their Super Lig title this term as they sit eight points behind runaway leaders Istanbul Basaksehir.
They cannot really afford any more slip-ups before the end of the season and will need to keep intact their fantastic home record – 29 matches undefeated which comprises well over one-and-a-half campaigns.
If Gala are to overhaul their city rivals, they certainly have the right man in charge because veteran Fatih Terim, who is in his fourth spell at the helm, has guided them to the crown on seven previous occasions including last season.
Trabzonspor, meanwhile, are fifth in the table, only three points behind Sunday’s opponents, and will be thinking that if they can win at the Turk Telekom Stadium it could boost their hopes of snatching second position and a place in the 2019-20 Champions League.
However, away from home, the club nicknamed the Black Sea Storm have been nowhere near as effective this term as in Trabzon.
This is expected to be a fairly routine victory for Galatasaray before they turn attention to their Europa League knockout tie against Benfica, the first leg of which is at home on Thursday.
