Galatasaray vs Bursaspor Prediction & Betting tips
Galatasaray last week took over the lead, but they did not manage to keep it for a long time. Last week they lost it to Basaksehir. On Friday they will visit Bursaspor, who has not been winning for eight weeks. Does Galatasaray win for its own audience?
Two weeks ago Galatasaray managed to regain the leading position of Basaksehir. They did not keep them for a long time, because last week Basaksehir passed them again. Despite the fact that Cimbom took the lead, they lost 2-1 to Kasimpasa. They had trouble creating goal attempts. Everything went well to the penalty area of the opponent. Here they did not manage to open the opponent’s defense and they did not know each other well. Galatasaray now loses two away games in a row and only won one of his last seven away games. Cimbom is still unbeaten for its own public. In Istanbul they always play more energetically.
Bafetimbi Gomis scared everyone against Kasimpasa. The French striker faded early in the match, but then simply continued to play. The top scorer will also be able to play against Bursaspor. Gomis is the big man in the front. He already scored seventeen times this season in the league and is therefore top scorer. Belhanda returns against Bursaspor. In the matches against Sivasspor and Kasimpasa, who lost Galatasaray, they played poorly without Belhanda.
Coach Fatih Terim was not satisfied with the result: ‘We played a good first half, but after a necessary substitution we played a worse second half. It seems like we have a phobia for away games. We are losing expensive points in this. Galatasaray must always be a team that puts the opponent under pressure ‘
Bursaspor made a very bad year last season and managed to prevent relegation on the last day. This season it all seemed a bit better, but the Crocodiles now seem to be in a dip. They only knew 27 points in 22 games. They have not been winning for eight matches. In these eight games, they only managed to win three coins. Last, they played 0-0 against Yeni Malatyaspor.
They did not play too bad against Yeni Malatyaspor. They gave away few opportunities. They themselves did have trouble with creating goal attempts. At Bursaspor, Pablo Batalla is back from an injury. The attacking midfielder is one of the most important players on the side of the Crocodiles. There are, however, a number of other important absences.
Coach Paul Le Guen comes under pressure at Bursaspor. The coach was not satisfied with the goalless draw against Yeni Malatyaspor: ‘We had the game under control, but could not express this in goals. My players did their best, but we have to play even better. ‘
