Galatasaray vs Besiktas – Top Predictions & Betting Tips

Galatasaray’s small winning streak in the Turkish league came to an end following a 2-0 loss at the hands of Konyaspor. In the midweek Europa League action, however, Galatasaray picked up a goalless draw with Barcelona in the first leg match. Besiktas do not have European action and the team were held to a 2-2 draw by Istanbul Basaksehir during the weekend.

Besiktas dropped more points in the league following the draw with Istanbul Basaksehir. Even though Besiktas have done well to pull back from losing positions in recent weeks, they do not have the momentum to convert draws into wins. Despite losing to Konyaspor, Galatasaray quickly recovered to produce a strong performance against Barcelona. This will provide a huge deal of belief to Domenec Torrent’s team.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been over 2.5 goals in the last two matches between Besiktas and Galatasaray. However, the two teams have more likely to cancel out each other in this game, which is likely to be a very tight contest. Both teams have had an almost identical form of late.

Both teams to score – yes

Besiktas might have picked just two wins in the last 10 away matches, but they have scored in each of the last five trips. Galatasaray are yet to rediscover the scoring confidence after failing to get a goal in back-to-back matches. However, Besiktas do not have the greatest defence in the league with an average of a goal per game conceded in the last six matches.

Galatasaray vs Besiktas: Match Preview and Team News


Galatasaray are coming into the game with only Arda Turan as the potential doubt. This gives manager Torrent huge flexibility when it comes to dealing with the small turnaround time for this match. Galatasaray will be aware that Besiktas have had a full week to prepare for this game.


Besiktas are still suffering from plenty of injury problems. Manager Onder Karaveli will have to find a way to overcome the absence of Atiba Hutchinson, Oguzhan Özyakup, Fehmi Mert Günok, and Welinton. Georges-Kévin Nkoudou might have come back to training, but he may not be completely fit yet. Miralem Pjanic is a major doubt for the match.
