It is very true that since Hector Cuper joined to Orduspor as the coach, Orduspor established a system which worked very well so far as the discipline of the players and the defense of Orduspor constantly performing above the expectations. Orduspor have the best running system comparing to other average Super League teams. Orduspor did not loose any match for 11 weeks and the last defeat was against Galatasaray last season. We can consider Orduspor began the season with success as they recorded 2 wins and 3 draws in 5 league matches. They collected 9 points and they are at the 4th position in the Super League table. Last weekend they drew with Istanbul BB 1-1. But there is a small detail here I need to bring in to your attention as Istanbul BB was down to 10 men in the first half. Therefore I do not consider Orduspor did well against the Istanbul BB. Besides 1 week before they defeated Kayserispor 3-2 and in that match Kayserispor were down to 10 men as well. For 2 matches Orduspor are playing against 10 men and they are a small question mark for this reason. Tonight they will play against 11 men of Galatasaray who are considered to be the best Turkish team recently. Barral, Kabze and Stancu are very important offense players and they will definitely thread Galatasaray.
Galatasaray are the biggest candidate of Turkish Championship and there is no doubt of that. They collected the most points and they are the league title. In the early matches they conceded a lot of goals which were telling that Galatasaray needed to improve their defense. But in last 3 matches (Man. Utd, Antalyaspor, Akhisar Belediye) they conceded only 1 goal. Their offense line without discussion is the best of all teams in Turkey. Burak Yilmaz, Elmander, Umut and Sercan are great talents and the nightmare of all goal keepers in Turkey Super League. Young talent Sercan (striker) was not taken to the squad and this is a message from Fatih Terim (coach) that he is taking this match very serious. Because Sercan is very young and needs time to improve and plays in such uncritical matches like last week against Akhisar Belediye GS. So collecting 13 points out of 5 matches Galatasaray are visiting Orduspor with awareness of the importance of this match as it is an important curve in the beginning of a difficult match traffic. The players are eager to play with maximum effort as there are a lot of alternatives in the squad and every player wants to prove themselves to Fatih Terim. On the following Tuesday Galatasaray are going to host Braga for CHL group match and it can be considered as Orduspor match may not be very well motivated by the players but Galatasaray with rich squad are ready to play 2 matches in 1 week.
I believe Fatih Terim will take it easy once his team gets the score advantage but 1 goal difference will be a risk until the last minute. Therefore I would not get surprised if Galatasaray manages to make 2 goal win or more. Bet on Galatasaray AH -0.75
