Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce Prediction & Betting tips
The 11th day of the Turkish Super Lig opens on Friday and does nothing less than with a derby when at the Turk Telekom Arena in Istanbul, the Galatasaray cast receives a visit from Fenerbahce.
Those led by Fatih Terim have been very irregular in recent days, so Galatasaray could not in his visit to Yeni Malatyaspor against who lost 2-0 and thus went down to the third box of the Süper Lig with 19 points, two points less that the leader Istanbul Basaksehir.
With last weekend’s loss, Galatasay added a three-game winless streak, and here we include the goalless draw against Germany’s Schalke 04 for the UEFA Champions League, a result that complicates their aspirations to remain in competition and thus this Tuesday there is no other than adding a victory on German soil.
But anyway, now it’s time to focus on the Süper Lig where they have the obligation to recover if they wish to continue holding the crown in Turkey, and for this Fatih relies on what can be their top scorer as is the Swiss Derdiyok who he has scored four goals and that this Friday at home where Galatasaray does not know of defeats in his seven official games (Süper Lig and UEFA Champions League), he hopes to continue showing his goalscorer qualities, in order to recover possession of the first place, of course, wait for results in other commitments.
For its part, the performance of those led by Philip Cocu is not the best and so Fenerbahce comes to lose at home 1-3 against Ankaragücü, in a result that not only leaves it far from the fight for the title in the Süper League, but only adds a point more than the last team in the red zone, so to lose in this game and add those that come down, we would have a giant in an uncomfortable situation.
With the defeat at home, Fenerbahce added a winless streak in his last four games and hopes to change this story in the derby against Galatasaray and the worst is that he will have to do without one of their area referents as is the Algerian striker Slimani.
Playing as a visitor the Fenerbahce cast does not know of victories in their last four games, taking as reference all the competitions and if we want to be more extensive Fenerbahce has only won one of the eight games played away from home this season where five of them They ended in defeats.
As for direct confrontations, it is Fenerbahce who has led the statistics in these last periods, since they add a four-game losing streak to Galatasaray where two were victories.
And in the last eight direct games, Galatasaray adds a victory that was in the Turkish Cup final, while Fenerbahce has three wins all for the Süper Lig.
