Galatasaray vs Besiktas: Preview & Prediction
But we must also know that last year on both occasions celebrated footballers Besiktas, so that in the camp of the Galatians have to be very careful now not lost very important points in the fight for the top. In fact, they currently occupy third place in the table and are seven points behind leaders Besiktas and three in relation to the runner-up Basaksehir, while on the other hand the fourth Fenerbahce for them lags three points.
Otherwise, Galata missed a great opportunity to the last four rounds further improve its position in the table, but at that time typed only one win, one draw and even two defeats, which eventually cost the job of the Dutch coach Rienkerinka. But his successor, Tudor was in his debut on the bench Galata won only one point on last week’s away match against Rizespor, so now against Besiktas, his chosen ones definitely have to give a much better game if they want to reach a positive result. Suppose even that, because of injuries and remain sidelined defenders Aziz and Carole, midfielder Sneijder and striker Derdiyok.

In contrast to the Galatians, this team Besiktas Istanbul derby awaits after three victories, with only one achieved in the championship, and in the domestic tour with Akhisar, while the other two recorded in the sixteenth finals of the European League against Israeli champions Hapoel Beer Sheva . But before that are chosen trenea Gunes suffered two straight defeats, primarily in the Turkish Cup by another big city rivals Fenerbahce and then the championship away to Karabukspor.
And considering that the team Karabukspor then headed just now coach of Galata, Tudor, it is clear that in the camp of the current Turkish champions have to be very careful how they are now not to repeat the same situation. All the more so because they are a bit more and tired of these performances on multiple fronts, while also playing squad slightly thinned in recent years and so this game with the Galatians because of injuries missed defenders Erkin, Adriano and Mitrovic, and assailants Aboubakar and Demba Ba, while still eligible to play no suspended defender Tosic.
