After being eliminated from Turkey Cup surprisingly, Istanbul BB did not have to play Turkey Cup Round 3 in the midweek. They were very inefficient in last weekend against Mersin IY at away match which they lost 2-0. They could not keep the ball in forward and they were unable to create goal chances as they failed in most goal organization attempts. Mersin IY were the fully dominating side. The trouble in defense continued in this match as well. Team coach Carvalhal pointed out the mistakes that Istanbul BB made against Mersin IY. The stats are telling me that Istanbul BB are not performing good results at home this season as they could only collect 2 points in 4 home matches. But there is a fact that last meeting on this ground last season Istanbul BB managed to defeat Galatasaray. But today things are much more different with the new coach and his new system which needs time to improve.
We are going to watch a match in domination of Galatasaray and home team to be defending. I do not believe Istanbul BB have a squad which you can apply the defending system of Carvalhal. For many seasons we watched Istanbul BB threatening big Istanbul teams like Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Besiktas. I would not hesitate on recommending an Asian Handicap of -1.5 but considering the following CHL match of Galatasaray the best offer is AH -0.75. Bet on Galatasaray AH -0.75
