Fenerbahce have much better season, but the team have also slowed down in recent matches, drawing one and losing another match. Today’s visitors have 60 points after 27 matches and sit on second place with 60 points and 44-21 aggregate goal difference. Fenerbahce are only 3 points behind leaders Besiktas. The Canaries took 24 points in 13 away matches this season.
It’s always tough to pick a team in clash of two Turkish giants as these teams are always battle for three points despite current league position. The reverse match earlier this season ended with 1-1 draw. Galatasaray are unbeaten in home matches against Fenerbahce since 2012. Considering the fact that hosts are on 19-match undefeated run we can expect them to extend the series.
Prediction for the match: Galatasaray to win with +0.5 Asian handicap
