Galatasaray vs Goztepe Prediction & Betting tips
The reign of Galatasaray ended after two championships in a row. The lions from Istanbul had to say goodbye to the title race for the first time since the 2016/17 season. Most recently, the yellow-red had to give up the international starting place and slipped to fifth place in the table after eight games without a win.
On matchday 33 of the Süper Lig, Galatasaray will play the last home game of the current season. The lions will be welcomed in the table ten Göztepe in the Türk Telekom Arena. As the odds comparison of the betting base shows, Galatasaray is against Göztepe according to the odds despite the form crisis in the role of favorites.
After all, there have been three defeats in a row, including the most recent 0: 1 against the bottom of the table from Ankara.
The form crisis at Galatasaray worsens. Two game days before the end of the season, the yellow-reds slipped to fifth place in the table after eight games without a win. In order for at least that place in the table of the Süper Lig to be defended, Galatasaray must survive the last two games without losing points.
This weekend, the last home game of the current season is taking place for the lions from Istanbul. For the home power from Istanbul, there has been no victory in their most recent three home games. Most recently, the yellow-red lost to Trabzonspor (1: 3) and thus conceded the second home defeat of the current Süper Lig season.
The personnel situation at Galatasaray, however, remains tense. Numerous top performers will continue to be forced to take a break. For Gala coach Terim, changes in the squad are again pending. In addition to the suspended Feghouli, Muslera, Andone, Falcao, Lemina and Donk will also be injured.
Even if the best bookmakers see Galatasaray against Göztepe according to their prediction and odds as a favorite, we don’t really recommend a prediction of the Turkish record champions in their current form. It is quite possible that the form crisis will continue until the end of the season.
Göztepe didn’t really get off to the best start in the 2019/20 season. Ex-coach Tamer Tuna had to pack his bags and clear the space. Since then Ilhan Palut has taken the reign at the yellow-red from Izmir. By the end of the season, the new trainer of “Göz Göz” had been able to convince and made up a few places in the table with a successful streak.
Göztepe has been in a form crisis for almost four months now. Ilhan Palut naturally felt the receipt in the fast-moving coaching business. In the coming season, the 43-year-old should no longer be on the sidelines – at least according to the latest media reports in Turkey. Riza Calimbay is already the successor.
On the last two match days of the Süper Lig, the yellow-red can end the season. In the middle of the table, there is no relegation risk for Göz Göz and there are no EL ambitions. Last week Göztepe suffered a surprising home defeat against Genclerbirligi (1-3) in line with the game.
For a long time, the Palut team tried to challenge the opposing defensive from the black and red capital club. A comeback was no longer possible due to the miserable exploitation of opportunities. Nevertheless, no changes are expected compared to the youngest starting eleven.
Göztepe will still have to do without Gürler, Jerome and Kadah on the offensive, which will significantly limit the options of “Göz Göz” -Coach Palut.
