Team News

Rizespor
Galatasaray
  • Braian Samudio is set to deputise for the injured Aminu Umar.
  • Ogulcan Caglayan is likely to deputise for the suspended Fernando Boldrin.
  • As Christian Luyindama and Marcao are sidelined with injury, Ryan Donk and Mario Lemina are expected to feature as make-shift centre-backs.

Prediction

  • Rizespor lost 2-0 to Goztepe last time out and find themselves within the relegation zone. Getting a point from Galatasaray will be a massive boost for their survival hopes. There are a few decent attackers in Rizespor's squad and they will get chances against an untested Donk-Lemina partnership in Galatasaray's defence.
  • Galatasaray were held to a draw by Besiktas last time out. To keep their title hopes alive, Terim's side will have to get all three points here. However, with no recognised central defender in the starting lineup, they will be exposed at the back.
  • This is going to be a very difficult game for the title holders and a draw is very likely.
