Galatasaray vs Ostersunds by Atipico07

Big game in Europa League between Galatasaray and Ostersund where I will bet on Galatasaray to win leading from the 1st half. First leg in Sweden finished 2-0. That was a big upset but Ostersund were lucky. I watched that game...first half was very boring with both teams trying to not concede. In the 2nd half, things changed as Ghoddos scored for Ostersund and then Galatsaray went to attack trying to score. The 2nd goal was a little bit ridicolous...Galatasaray decided to go "all in" in attack without sense and they conceded a big counterattack conceding the 2nd goal too. Maybe Ostersund deserved to win that match but they were lucky to not concede a goal. Galatasaray had a lot of big chances to score but they failed them. We have to say that game was the first official game of the season for Galatasaray so they were not at their best form without doubts.


Today, I'm expecting a fully motivated home side. I just can't see them already out of Europa League. They are much more better team, with better players and they will have the home advantage. We all know what Galatasaray's fan can do and that will be an huge advantage for the home team.


Galatasaray will play high tempo since the beginning of the first half trying to score one or more goals in the first half and they should be able to do that without big problems as Ostersund's defense is very poor especially when they play away from home (they have conceded 12 goals in 7 matches played on the road in the league).


I'm expecting a big start from Galatasaray...they will lead from the 1st half and win this match imo. I don't know if they will be able to qualify but this seems to be a very good value bet as even a 2-1, 3-1 or 2-0 with Galatasaray leading in the first half will be good for this

I think there is value in this pick. I will go for AH -1,5 for Gala though, odds have varied between @1,90-1,95 today for that bet.
Swedish side will probably find it a very different task to win a major Turkish team in the heat of Istanbul than in Sweden. Unless Gala is in some sort of a crisis this should be their game. Of course one counter may change it all, but still teams like Befinca have come to Istanbul to lose. It will ne a very hard task for Ostersunds to stand the pressure. Let's see how they will do it.

Ostersunds' counterattacks are the reason why I choosed HT/FT as something like 2-1/3-2 or 3-1 will be a shame for the home side.
