TRB vs GAL Dream11: İstanbul Başakşehir battled against the odds and landed themselves an unlikely league title last season. But the reigning champions are fighting a completely different battle this season, mired in the relegation scrimmage, which is as shocking as their title surge last season. That means, there's a lot of familiarity on the upper tiers of the league table in the current campaign. Galatasaray are certainly amongst the leading pack at the moment and could go top of the table with the maximum return from this game.
Lot is expected from Trabzonspor as well, at least a genuine shot at th European places at minimum. But they are struggling as well, sitting at 9th heading into the home encounter against the record Turkish Super Lig winners at Şenol Güneş Stadium on Saturday night (IST). Here is TRB vs GAL Dream 11 Match Prediction.
Fixture Name And Competition: Trabzonspor vs Galatasaray: Turkish League
Date & Time: 09:30 PM (IST), 26 December
Venue: Şenol Güneş Stadium
Trabzonspor: The view should be better for them on the table. They are expected to be near about top-four every week, but the bad start to the season mad their job harder. They dropped too many points in the beginning, lost games they should have won, and that's the reason for their current 9th position.
But the recent form is indicating that the ship is getting steady and is heading towards the safe shores. They are on a seven-game unbeaten run, the best such streak for them this season, with three of those game fetching wins.
Galatasaray: The 22-time Super Lig winners are second on the table, but a win here will take them to the summit. Still, there's a feeling that Galatasaray should do better. The 2-1 defeat against Fatih Karagumruk came out of the blues and shows that this team has underperformed at times.
Head-to-head (last five meetings)
Galatasaray had a season to forget in 2019-20 and that reflects on their output. Trabzonspor won 1-3 away against Galatasaray in the last game and drew the home fixture 1-1. Overall, both teams tend to get better of each other time to time, with both winning twice in the last five games.
