Team News

  • Oscar Pinchi, who wasn't expected to start here, is injured.
  • Mithat Pala has served his suspension and is set to return to the starting XI.
  • Manager Okan Buruk has a full squad available to pick from.


  • Rizespor were beaten 3-1 by Kayserispor last time out. Palut's team paid for the countless errors they committed in defence and had no one to blame but themselves. In general, they've suffered against team that boast attacking talents, as attested by the 5-0 defeat at the hands of Fenerbahce. This is going to be a very long 90 minutes for the Black Sea side.
  • Galatasaray needed a late penalty to overcome a ten-men Besiktas last time out. They were in fill control of the game, created a plethora of chances, but only managed to get a 2-1 win.
  • In the midweek Champions League tie against Bayern Munchen, they once again created quite a few chances but ended up losing 3-1.
  • Their morale will have suffered a blow, but there is enough quality in this squad to get a win here, albeit a narrow one.
