Alanyaspor v Galatasaray

Asian Handicap
Pick: Galatasaray -0.5
Odds: 2.56
Stake: 1

Match date: 20/02/2021

Yes Alanyaspor are one of those interesting teams who can defeat Istanbul giants however the dynamics of this match is something different. Alanyaspor managed to qualify to semi final after defeating Galatasaray in previous midweek. They managed to lead 0-3 but in second half Galatasaray were almost making a come-back and match resulted 2-3. In winter break they lost one of their most important midfielder Bakasetas to Trabzonspor. Last weekend Alanyasor drew with Hatayspor on away in a match which Hatayspor were down to ten men in the second half. It is interesting that they could not hit the nets of a team who had to play with ten men the whole second half. I do not think they can do something surprising and be Super Lig champion for sure but Turkish Cup is definitely their target which they lost in final to Trabzonspor last season. With good management and football I think they deserve it this time. They do not have any absent for this clash which they are hosting Galatasaray.

Galatasaray are one of the best team in reinforcing their squad in Super Lig. They brought young talent Mustafa from Egypt. He is said to be the second Salah. Well, I don’t know if he has that big future but I am sure he has got quality as it is so obvious from his football that he is a very good striker. Most journalists mention that Galatasaray found their striker this and next season. The return of Muslera from long time injury can also be counted as a good transfer and Galatasaray are already the least conceding team of the league. Young talent Portuguese midfielder Gedson Fernandes is also excepted to prove himself and Onyekuru already giving confident. So I can confidently say that in winter break Galatasaray got more strength comparing Alanyaspor who lost one of their important offensive midfielder. Galatasaray arrived to city Antalya/Alanya a few days early and started to get prepared for this match. It is a fact that the weather conditions are 5 times better in that region especially in this time when it is very cold in Istanbul. Good news is that Colombian star Falcao and Feghouli are out of injury and back in the squad but I am not sure if they can play 90 minutes. I also must remind that since Mustafa joined and recorded 4 goals already no one is missing Falcao any more.


-Alanyaspor recorded 3 consecutive wins at home and this season they had never won 4 matches in a row.

-Alanyaspor lost the last 2 league matches that they played against Istanbul teams.

- Galatasaray with Fatih Terim lost the last 2 matches to Alanyaspor.

I personally do not believe that Alanyaspor are as strong as in the first half of the season and cup match should not be considered as a measure here. Galatasaray brought important players recently and it is hard for me to believe that they will loose 3 times to Alanyaspor in one season. They came early and are completely focused on this one as it is a fact that this is one of the most difficult away match in their league campaign. I think the odds are high because Alanyaspor defeated Galatasaray 2 times this season however as I had mentioned in the beginning of the preview, the dynamics of this match is different and value is huge here. $
