Konyaspor greatly disappoint their supporters in this season as at this point the side holds the relegation battle in the Turkish Super Lig, sitting now on the 17th position in the table with 17 points gained after 20 matches played. The team looks boring in attack, having scored 20 goals so far, however, its defense doesn’t feel better with 28 goals conceded. In the latest away clashes Konyaspor have lost to Genclerbirligi 1:2, Goztepe 0:1 and deserved 1:1 draw against Trabzonspor.
Last time Konyaspor succeeded to break Galatasaray was in 2003. The first-leg battle of this quarter-final was finished with 2:2 scoreline, nevertheless, “Aslanlar” are considered to be the obvious favourites for promotion to the next round of the tournament as Galatasaray have much stronger players in their roster who are not likely to leave any chances to the visitors.
Prediction for the match: Galatasaray to win.
