Galatasaray failed the last season, taking only 51 points with 69-49 goal difference in 34 matches and finishing only sixth in the standings, 28 points behind the champions. At the same time, Galatasaray still managed to win a trophy, gaining Turkish Cup after beating Fenerbahce in the final, 1-0. The club appointed new manager, Dutchman Jan Olde Reikerink, who will lead the team into new season.
Galatasaray lost both league fixtures to Besiktas last season, 0-1 and 1-2. However, Galatasaray were undefeated in 10 head-to-heads before these two losses. It’s hard to pick a favorite in the match, but we can expect the clash to have small number of chance as neither of the teams is in position to risk.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals.
