Galatasaray team news

Although they are close in points to the top four, Galatasaray are currently going through a seriously tough patch in the Turkish Super Lig and won’t be happy with their standings. The record champions are winless in their past five league matches, drawing three and losing twice. Their most recent defeat came on Monday as they were beaten 1-0 by Sivasppor, continuing their drop down the table having been fourth just a few weeks ago. Galatasaray are withou Fernando Muslera and Christian Luyindama for this game, with the former suffering a knee injury on Monday, while Sacha Boey may not be fit enough to return.

Galatasaray predicted XI: Cipe; Yedlin, Nelsson, Marcao, Van Aanholt; Antalyali; Feghouli, Kutlu, Cicaldau, Akturkoglu; Mohamed.

Istanbul Basaksehir team news

While Galatasaray have been suffering, Istanbul Basaksehir have been climbing and their current unbeaten run of eight matches has seen them shoot up to fourth from 15th. The run started with a 3-2 win over Besiktas and has also brought victory against third-placed Hatayspor, with only Altay taking points from Basaksehir in that time (seven wins). They are now just two points behind second-placed Konyaspor and will be hopeful of closing the gap on leaders Trabzonspor before the Turkish Super Lig takes its break just after Christmas. And Basaksehir go into this game with a clean bill of health, so can go full strength in their quest to add to Galatasaray’s misery.

Istanbul Basaksehir predicted XI: Sengezer; Sahiner, Duarte, Ndayishimiye, Kaldirim; Tekdemir, Ozcan; Visca, Turuc, Chadli; Okaka.
