Galatasaray vs Akhisar by Isaiah
Galatasaray won comfortably last weekend away to Antalyaspor with a score of 0-4, in a game where they were determined to finish the game as early as possible, because they had the game in front of the Champions League against Manchester United. The difference in quality was evident as four different players scored.
Last Tuesday they lost with the score of 1-0 against Manchester United, where they received an early, but then took the reins and deserved to equalize, missed lot of opportunities to score and generally left great impressions.
In the Turkish league they have been found early in the first place of the league table, and wants to remain there until the end, as their roster has many solutions and Fatih Terim can afford to make changes.
Defender Ujfalusi (2 gamesplayed) and winger Baytar are still out due to injury and punishment, while Brazilian defender Cris probablyt will be rested. Galatasaray will field again Bulut (4 games, 5 goals) and Yilmaz (3 games, 2 goals) in front line.
Akhisar experienced a heavy home defeat against Istanbul Buyuksehir with the score of 0-4. The extent of the score is high but they made a good effort to take a result, as they lost some good opportunities to score, but Cameroonian striker Webo of Buyuksehir was too effective and scored a hat-trick, taking advantage of Akhisar defensive weaknesses.
Their adventure to Super Lig so far Akhisarspor is good, although not performing some good football. Coach Hamza Hamzaoglu has essentially a roster that is too low in quality for Super Lig, anre they are struggling to cope. The administration made no big moves to strengthen the roster during summer, just not to face financial problems in the future.
Cameroonian striker Bikoko (2 games, no goals) and Brazilian striker Mezenga (4 games, no goals) are both out injured, and the only available striker is Yilmaz. They will field a full defensive side with only Yilmas in front line.
Easy or difficult Galatasaray should win over poor Akhisar, and will continue their good form. Akhisar should consider the game just to get some valuable experience and should focus on more compatible games to take points.
