Eskisehirspor vs Galatasaray by Foxserkan

Eskisehirspor managed to qualify to semi final of Turkish Cup, after the midweek victory on away match against Mersin IY. Such a result of 0-3 is an other evidence of their strong offense line. Last weekend they drew with Istanbul BB on away match 2-2. And the equalizing goal was recorded in a last minute penalty kick of Istanbul BB. Eskisehirspor are coached by Ersun Yanal, a coach with an understanding of positive football. He declared a few days ago that the quality of the football is more important than the final result of the match. There is no doubt that Ersun Yanal is a man who does not enjoy his team to be defending 90 minutes like other Turkish clubs. He had the same understanding in all clubs he managed before. Eskisehirspor consist of some players who played in Galatasaray or raised in Galatasaray such as Necati, Mehmet Guven, Servet Cetin. I can not say that they are one of those teams that hate Galatasaray. I know the public in city Eskisehir do not like Istanbul giants such as Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas but I also know the hate against Fenerbahce is the biggest. If striker Necati hits the nets of Galatasaray he will not be happy and even not show a victories figure to the fans. And Eskisehirspor fans would respect this behavior. Necati is the most experienced forwarder of home team with total goals of 13. Well, may be Ersun Yanal is aware of this and he may keep him at the bench. Lets wait and see. Important defender Dede (33 matches, 1 goal) has knee problem. Midfielder Mehmet Guven (11 matches) is doubtful. Important defender Servet Cetin (31 matches, goals) is doubtful.


Last weekend Galatasaray recorded a great come back in a match which they hosted Orduspor. The first goal of the match was an own goal of either Muslera or Selcuk Sahin. As goal keeper Muslera wanted to send a long ball to Drogba but with a rush and accident the ball hit the feet of his team mate Selcuk Inan and changed the direction backwards to the nets. It was a funny goal. When the first half was finishing a silly hand ball of Hakan Balta, the referee whistled for a penalty kick and Orduspor managed to lead the first half 0-2. In the second half Galatasaray begun their non stopping pressure and great goal of Sneijder gave motivation and belief to the players. Burak Yilmaz recorded the equalizing goal and after that spark no one could have stopped Galatasaray. An other goal by Burak and a super shot of Selcuk Inan Galatasaray recorded a win with a result of 4-2. About the match notes: I want to say that Sneijder showed that he is getting into shape and he will soon play with his real strength. Drogba did not hit the nets but for sure his existence is very important. Burak Yilmaz is a very lucky man because when opponent is busy with Drogba, they forget an other important striker Burak Yilmaz. Simply Galatasaray have the strongest offense line in Turkey Super League. Forward Johan Elmander (16 matches, 5 goals) is injured. Defender Tomas Ujfalusi (2 matches) is long time injury. Important defender Dany Nounkeu (27 matches) is suspended. Substitute goal keepers Aykut and Ufuk are injured. Midfielder Engin Baytar (5 matches) is not taken to the squad.


Seems like a very difficult match to predict. Considering the absents of defenders in both teams and strong offense line, everyone believe that this is a banker OVER 2.5. IMO betting on Galatasaray is a safer bet as this time they play against a positive team who will not line up with a solid defense. Bet on Galatasaray. Odds are superb.
