Draw or victory for Istanbul Basaksehir

Galatasaray have not been great for several months. The team were able to finish top of the Europa League group largely due to the failings of the other teams. Istanbul Basaksehir are coming on a run of three consecutive away victories, while the overall form is also excellent with five wins in the last six. Istanbul Basaksehir are unbeaten in eight matches. Even if they have managed just one win over Galatasaray last six attempts, this match is perfect for the double chance market.

Stefano Okaka to score anytime

Stefano Okaka has been able to pick up goals in his last two away matches for Istanbul Basaksehir. The summer signing has already emerged as the top scorer for the club this season with eight goals in 13 league matches. The centre forward will be able to take advantage of Galatasaray’s defence, which continues to commit many individual errors.

BTTS – yes

Galatasaray might be struggling for form in the offensive areas and making too many mistakes at the back, but they have seen goals at both ends in three out of the last five matches. Ironically, Istanbul Basaksehir also have a similar record during the same timeframe.
