Galatasaray – Antalyaspor
Galatasaray hosts Antalyaspor in a game from the 21th round of the Turkish Super Lig. Here are our predictions football 1×2 for this clash in the city of Istanbul.
Galatasaray are currently 2nd in the Super Lig standings, trailing on two points behind the leader Istanbul Basaksehir. This means that a win over Antalyaspor at home will get them back on the top of the table.
Right now Galatasaray have 41 points won and a record of 13 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. In their last five games in the league they have won three times, but also suffered two defeats – including against Sivasspor in the last round. Now Fatih Terim and his players would like to redeem themselves in front of their fans for the surprising loss last week.
Antalyaspor on the other hand are a team with serious troubles this season. They are currently 15th in the league with 21 points, being just one point above the 16th Konyaspor and the relegation zone. Antalyaspor started the season with huge ambitions, having players like Samuel Eto’o and Samir Nasri, but now both of them are gone. And Antalyaspor have to work very hard to avoid relegation.
The team’s record in the league so far is not very good – 5 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. The presence of players like Eto’o and Nasri didn’t inspire the team in the way everyone expected. Can they do better without them? We shall see.
Galatasaray are the favourite here, of course. They would like to top the table and overtake Istanbul Basaksehir, so you can be sure that the home team will be very motivated here. Can Antalyaspor do enough to avoid losing? This is the question.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Turkish Super Lig game between Galatasaray and Antalyaspor.
