Tip Reasoning

Galatasaray’s fine form following the winter break suggests they are still in the title race and do have what it takes to catch Istanbul Basaksehir. The hosts have won their last five matches in all competitions and will need another good performance on Saturday when they face Alanyaspor. The hosts only lost two of their last six matches and have three clean sheets during that period, so could prove a tough nut for Galatasaray to crack.

Alanyaspor made light work of relegation battling Ankaragucu on Monday night, recording a 2-0 win at the Eryaman Stadyumu. A sixth minute penalty from Djalma put the visitors in front early on and proved the difference between the two sides at the interval. Both teams shared the possession and created an similar number of goal scoring opportunities during the match, but former Newcastle United striker Cissé netted the games crucial second goal ten minutes into the second half to put the result beyond doubt.

Galatasaray cruised passed second tier side Boluspor in the Turkish Cup over two legs, winning the 2nd Leg at home 4-1 for a 5-1 aggregate victory. Goals from Akgün and Çelik saw Galatasaray leading 2-0 at the break, and Akgün went on to complete his hat trick during the second forty-five. Akabueze converted a penalty for the visitors ten minutes from time, but it was just a consolation strike as Galatasaray had this tie won in the first half. Galatasaray have had one day less to recuperate and prepare for Saturday’s game and it will be interesting to see how that effects the game, especially in the second half when you would expect to see a few tired legs.

Its difficult to see Galatasaray slipping up in their current vein of form, especially given their 100% record against Alanyaspor. The visitors have won their last five matches in all competitions and appear to have returned from the winter break with great purpose. These two sides have only met five times, but on each occasion Galatasaray have been victorious. Eleven points and eight places separate these two teams in the Primeira Liga, and were expecting that gap to increase on Saturday.

Cissé top scores for the hosts with six league goals so far this season, but teammate Fernándes is just one behind on five. On-loan Everton forward Onyekuru has been Galatasaray’s standout player this season and needs just one goal to reach double figures for the season. We’re confident that Galatasaray will win on Saturday, and have backed a narrow scoreline of just one goal to nil. The visitors are the form side of the two and look like they mean business following the winter break. Galatasaray have a 100% record against their hosts and have outperformed them in all areas so far this season.
