Galatasaray vs Alanyaspor Prediction & Betting tips
Déjà-vu at the football players from Alanya – as in the previous season, Alanyaspor surprisingly leads the Süper Lig after four matchdays this season. Last year Alanyaspor stayed at the top of the table until the tenth match day, before the team around then head coach Erol Bulut buckled and slipped into the middle of the table.
As the Orange-Greens season start shows so far, it would hardly be surprising if Alanyaspor settled in the upper quarter of the table in the coming weeks. On Monday evening, the soccer players from Alanya will meet the Turkish record champions Galatasaray. For coach Cagdas Atan, the upcoming match will be the first matriculation test in the Turkish House of Lords.
Galatasaray suffered two defeats in a row before the international break. Among other things, the lions from Istanbul were eliminated from the Europa League. This was followed by an away defeat at Kasimpasa in the domestic Süper Lig. It is now all the more important to find the winning track with a home win over Alanyaspor.
If the match is won against the league leaders, Galatasaray draws level on points. The best bookmakers see Galatasaray versus Alanyaspor as favorites according to odds. A prognosis for the lions is quite obvious despite the mini-crisis.
The international break came at an ideal time for Galatasaray. The lions from Istanbul were previously in extremely poor shape and were three times in a row without a win across all competitions. Galatasaray lost among other things in the Europa League play-offs against Glasgow Rangers, which ended the international adventure early.
The focus this season is therefore clearly on the national competition. In the Süper Lig, Galatasaray is currently aiming for the 23rd championship title. Whether Galatasaray will prevail as Süper Lig champions 2020/21 remains to be seen, after all, the Lions stumbled last. On the last two match days of the Süper Lig, Galatasaray only got one point.
Before the international break, the Turkish record champions lost the mini derby against city rivals Kasimpasa. The team of “Imperator” Fatih Terim tried hard over long distances, but remained largely harmless compared to their city rivals on the offensive. In the end, Galatasaray even got away happily with the narrow away defeat (0: 1).
During the international break, the battered lions were able to regenerate. In addition, the hospital at the Turkish record champions has also shrunk. On Monday evening, only the long-term injured keeper Fernando Muslera will have to pause at the gala. Otherwise, Fatih Terim has all options in the squad against Alanyaspor.
In addition, Galatasaray will be allowed to kick in front of their own viewers for the first time in some time. A total of 1,500 box seats will be available for your own supporters in the Türk Telekom Arena. However, the home advantage is still limited, especially since the desired cauldron atmosphere is hardly achieved with the small number of spectators.
Cagdas Atan is currently still benefiting from the game system of its predecessor Erol Bulut. The new trainer from Alanyaspor took over a team as head coach for the first time this season, but benefited from the team that was made available to him. The newcomers were also successfully integrated into the starting line-up.
The Orange-Greens have established themselves in pole position after four match days. Before the international break, the championship lead was impressively defended with a runaway win over Hatayspor (6-0). In Istanbul, the Orange-Greens are now facing a real endurance test. If the confident head coach Cagdas Atan has his way, Alanyaspor currently has the potential to overcome every hurdle in the Süper Lig.
Sivasspor, fourth in the table last season, already felt that the Atan-Elf are strong abroad. Alanyaspor prevailed in the difficult away game at the “Yigidos” 2-0. In addition to the strong offensive, the defensive bulwark of Alanyaspor has so far been particularly convincing.
Alanyaspor conceded only one goal in the first four match days. It still remains to be seen whether Alanyaspor can also keep the Turkish record champions’ offensive in check. Cagdas Atan will have to do without team captain Efecan Karaca in Istanbul. Further failures are not to be complained about with the Orange-Greens. True to the motto “never change a winning team”, Atan will probably forego changes in the starting XI.
