On December 25, Nef (Istanbul) will host the match of the 15th round of the Turkish, in which Galatasaray will compete with Istanbulspor. The battle will start at 17:00 CET.

Galatasaray

The club will remember last season for ages. Of course, the grandee has already had bad seasons, but this one still stood apart. 38 rounds were divided equally: the number of wins and losses is the same, 14 of each, and the goal difference remained negative. Having only 52 points, “the Blood-Golds” finished at the bottom of the table, in the 13th place. It goes without saying that everyone was waiting for rehabilitation, and Okan Buruk, a local legend, who had won the UEFA Cup and the Super Cup as a player in 2000, should have coped with this task. He's doing pretty well. “The Lions” are in the 2nd place, being after their neighbour and eternal rival, Fenerbahce – they have won 8 out of 13 matches. At the same time, the fact that the friendly matches during the break did not bring the desired results is worrying enough. Still, the official results are consistently worthy and that is the main thing.

Istanbulspor

The team used to show good football. In the 90s of the last century, it made the way to European competitions, where, however, there were no special results. At the beginning of the new century, the team, at the very least, is trying to survive in the Süper Lig. Then it was 17 years in a row in the First League (TFF 1. Lig). And this bad streak could last a lot, but, last season, having finished in the 4th position, “the Yellow Bulls” turned out to be the best in the play-offs. However, at the elite level, the team is not impressive. At the end of the summer it seemed that the newcomer got used to the tournament when, after 3 defeats at the start, in August, there were a couple of wins and a couple of draws in 4 rounds in a row. But there has not been any success since then – still, we may see the same 8 points in the asset and 6 defeats in a row on the liabilities side. There exist only meagre hopes that something has suddenly improved during the weeks of the break.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Last time the official matches between the teams were held in the 2004/2005 season, and Galatasaray was better in both games.

Predictions

Bookmakers do not believe in the transformation of Istanbulspor. We totally agree with their skepticism: the giant should win at home with “a -1.5 goal handicap” (odd: 1.95).
