Istanbul Basaksehir have by far been the best side in Turkey this season and the fact that they have no midweek engagements in Europe has played well in their plans for the campaign. They sit top of the standings on a seven point gap and that can widen this weekend with the second and third placed sides facing tricky outings. Istanbul Basaksehir have conceded just six goals in the 15 matches in the Super Lig this season. Theirs as bee a story of good defensive discipline, as they have scored five lesser than seventh placed Galatasaray who are on 25 goals in the season. Galatasaray have however conceded 18, which has heavily dented their goal difference. Galatasaray have dropped nine points in the last five matches, picking just six off a possible 15 in the last five matches in the league. One bit that could come to bit Gala so hard is the fact that they have managed just one clean sheet in the last seven league matches and facing a side that has scored in six of the last seven matches won’t come with much favors for the visitors. At 10 wins, Istanbul Basaksehir is the team with the most wins in the Super Lig and with two losses, they have the least defeats, which justifies their top place in the standings and they get to face a Galatasaray side jaded with midweek action and coming straight from a home loss to FC Porto and definitely short in confidence having picked three losses in their last five matches across all competitions and winning just one of their last six matches.
