Galatasaray vs Besiktas Prediction and Betting Preview 15 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-0
Galatasaray vs Besiktas PredictionAs European Leagues continue to suspend their activities, the Turkish Super Lig are not letting their guard down as all weekend fixtures are expected to go on as planned. Pretty odd it appears, but it was a unanimous decision reached by the Turkish FA given the country have not recorded any major outbreak of the deadly COVID-19 that has ravaged the European continent.
Match status: 2019/20 Turkey Super Lig - Matchweek 26
Kick-off:
Venue: Türk Telekom Stadyumu (Istanbul)
This Sunday, Europa League faithful Besiktas will be making a short trip to the Turk Telekom Stadyumu to take on Galatasaray in one of the fixtures billed to go down in the Turkish Super Lig this Sunday. Expect a frantic game of football between these two sides.

Galatasaray, three points off the summit of the standings, will be looking to get all three points on board against Sergen Yalcin’s charges this weekend, to keep their title hopes alive. However, it is not expected to be a stroll in the park for the home side against this resilient Besiktas outfit.

With Besiktas also seeking a break-in into the highly-averred top-four mix and desperate for maximum points, expect a cracker of a game in Galatasaray on Sunday evening.

Galatasaray vs Besiktas Team News

Galatasaray were on the road on the last match-day and were required to pull off an unexpected victory over fellow title contenders Sivasspor, and as expected, failed to deliver the goods. With the away side pressing for the win, they were left hanging on to a frustrating draw to keep them rooted in third on the log.

A frantic encounter it was at the Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul Stadyumu, the Yigidos had enough about themselves to hold Faith Terim’s side to a thrilling 2-2 draw. The game kept everyone at the edges of the seats as we continued to witness end-to-end football on the pitch.

Following the draw, the hosts will now return to Super Lig action, this time at home, against another tough opposition in Besiktas. The Lions are sporting a pretty good record heading into this fixture having remained unbeaten in their previous 6 matches, featuring no less than 5 wins in that time.

Save for their unexpected 0-2 loss to Alanyaspor on the road in the Turkish Cup, Faith Terim has masterminded a 13-game unbeaten run across all competitions. The whole squad is on cloud-9 and it seems only a matter of time before they usurp Trabzonspor to the summit of the league.

Besiktas, on the other hand, are having a decent season of their own, just six points adrift this weekend’s opposition on the standings. With a place within the league’s top-four in view, the visiting contingent will be eager to sweep Galatasaray off their feet here to edge closer to Europa League football.

Following their scrappy 2-1 victory over Ankaragucu last weekend, Besiktas are on a two-game winning run and are looking really good. However, it is worth noting that their form in away games have been nothing short of disappointing.

Six of their overall eight losses have come on the road. Given this, Sergen Yalcin and his charges will likely be at a backhand when Galatasaray get the ball rolling at the Istanbul Stadium. Can Besiktas put their away woes behind them to secure a positive result here? Time will tell.

It goes without saying that Galatasaray are favorites to come away with the win in this fixture. With Besiktas coming around town on Sunday, the hosts will be looking to utilize home advantage to maximum effect to clinch maximum points.

Also, given the poor away record the visitors have managed this term, it is difficult seeing Besiktas salvaging anything meaningful from this game. The home side should see off Besiktas fairly easily, keeping a clean sheet while at it.
