GAL vs BES Dream11 Match Prediction

GAL vs BES Dream11: The game between Trabzonspor and Istanbul Basaksehir may get more attention due to the stakes, but Galatasaray versus Besiktas is also an important clash this week which could decide the fate of the title. Not to mention the fierce rivalry between Galatasaray and Besiktas, one of the biggest in Turkish football, with either club needing no extra motivation to beat the other one. Besiktas‘ efforts may be boosted by the fact that a defeat here could prove to be a hammer blow to Galatasaray's title hopes, while the latter knows a win is of paramount importance if it wants to remain relevant for the ultimate thing this season.

Form and recent results:

Galatasaray could have been only one point off the summit had they beaten Sivasspor last week, but instead, they had to settle for a 2-2 draw. What's more painful is that they were leading the game at half time. But that result doesn't take the fact away that Galatasaray are the hottest team in Turkish Super Lig at the moment, having won the previous 10 consecutive games prior to that 2-2 draw.

Besiktas also have the momentum and will fancy their chances here, although they are the underdogs because of the overall inconsistency that has been the hallmark of their current season. Besiktas are down at 6th on the points table with 43 points but know they may be in the race for the title if the game between Trabzonspor and Istanbul Basaksehir ends in a draw while they win their own match against Galatasaray.
