Tip Galatasaray - Trabzonspor
Two giants of the Turkish game clash in the Super Lig this weekend when Galatasaray welcome Trabzonspor on Sunday. The visitors are second in the table, only two points behind leaders Istanbul Basaksehir and four ahead of Sivasspor in third. Galatasaray occupy fourth place, a point behind Sivasspor. While it would take an extraordinary turn of events for them to win the league, they will maintain hope while it is still mathematically possible. The form of the home side would have to improve dramatically for title fantasies to become remotely feasible. They failed to win the three games they have played since the restart, extending a winless run in the league to five games. They will take solace from their relatively solid home form, their unbeaten streak at the Türk Telekom Stadium now at nine games. However, their last two home results were draws. Galatasaray have performed well against Trabzonspor in recent years on their own patch though, winning the last two encounters played there.
Trabzonspor have had the bigger share of wins in this head-to-head in recent seasons with three of the last six contests ending in their favour. Earlier in the season, the clubs played out a 1-1 draw. This was the fourth time in the last five encounters that both teams scored in this fixture. Trabzonspor have the best away record in the league and have been in good scoring form of late, firing in at least two goals in five of their last six away matches. They have stuttered in recent rounds, drawing their last two fixtures, and the last four matches they've played have featured red cards. Galatasaray could be without a few key players who are carrying injuries, including Falcao and Muslera. Therefore, we suggest backing the visitors to get the better of the home side.

Conclusion Galatasaray - Trabzonspor
Galatasaray have a good record at home but they are missing some of their biggest stars going into this fixture. Trabzonspor have a bigger shot at winning the title and this appears to have been the motivation for big away wins, like the recent victory at Fenerbahce. Expect them to put in an inspired display when they travel to Galatasaray. Back the visitors to win.
