Göztepe will welcome Galatasaray to Göztepe Gürsel Aksel Stadı for a matchday 26 fixture in Turkey Süper Lig. The last meeting on 26th September 2021 ended in a Galatasaray 2-1 win. Both sides have met nine times in the most recent seasons. Göztepe has won 1 match, and Galatasaray triumphed in 8. Recent outings average 2.78 goals, while both teams score 67% of the time.
Göztepe’s latest fixture against Hatayspor ended in an away 2-1 loss. I expected more from Göztepe. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Göztepe was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 59 minute.
Galatasaray’s recent game against Kayserispor ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points. Galatasaray deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 85th minute.
Although Göztepe is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 8% home clean sheets.
Galatasaray has picked up 2 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Galatasaray wins 0.92 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Galatasaray kept a clean sheet in just 17% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Galatasaray.
