Galatasaray - Tuzlaspor Prediction, Picks and Tips
Record Cup winner Galatasaray starts in the next "Türkiye Kupasi". The lions from Istanbul have fixed the double in Turkey last season and thus expanded the trophy collection. The title defense in the Turkish Cup is still secondary for Galatasaray this season. Reason for this are, among other things, the low revenue from the Cup. The death of favorites in the "Türkiye Kupasi" has been common in recent years. So it was completely normal that in the quarterfinal pairings of the season 2017/18 and 2018/19 again second division were represented among the top eight teams. Surprisingly, this is not the case, because the teams from the Süper Lig throw the rotating machine over again and put in the first rounds primarily on a B-Eleven. Not much will change in the match between Galatasaray and Tuzlaspor. A prognosis on the hosts is therefore not recommended in the current listings. The Turkish record champions had to contend with a few injury worries since the beginning of the season and will therefore probably hardly performers in the home game against Tuzlaspor use. Rather, it can be assumed that a mixture of reservists and youngsters will play against Tuzlaspor. The guests would therefore have the potential for a little surprise, but we suspect that the respect for the heavyweight from Istanbul will be too big to realize the sensation.
Galatasaray was able to avoid the next setback last weekend and score an important point on the Black Sea. At the traditional derby between Trabzonspor and Galatasaray the lions from Istanbul scored the equalizer at the last minute and thus secured a very happy point. According to current table situation, the point profit is not particularly praiseworthy, but as the last seasons in the Süper Lig have proven, every point in the title fight is crucial. Galatasaray are currently seven points behind leaders Sivasspor. By the end of the year, a catch-up of the lions would not be surprising. Galatasaray will play three of their last four first-round matches against home soil, building on home strength. At the weekend, the home game against Alanyaspor, where the lions want to find three points back into the victory lane. The more unlikely is therefore the use of numerous achievers in the cup match. It is expected that reservists and youngsters will play against the third division. Players such as Taylan Antalyali, Emre Mor, Emre Tasdemir, Ahmet Calik or Erencan Yardimci are expected to play against Tuzlaspor. Keeper Fernando Muslera will also be spared. Since many players are free to play, it remains to be seen what performance the Galatasaray B-Elf will deliver.
The third division from Tuzla wants to surprise the Turkish champions. The blue-whites have little to lose against the big city rivals. However, Tuzlaspor coach Gürses Kilic is aware of how important the cup match is for his own players. With a strong showing against the Turkish champions, many players at Tuzla can prove their commitment to bigger clubs. The Blue-Whites have namely namely never fixed the rise in the second Turkish league, but remained since club founding in the underclass leagues of Turkey. The first promotion to the second Turkish league can certainly be realized this season. Tuzlaspor put on a strong start to the season in the third division with 31 points and meanwhile fights for the championship lead. There was a disappointing home run against Table 13 last weekend. Etimesgut, with which the chance on the table guidance was assigned. At least a playoff participation should be guaranteed at the strong performances of the blue-white at the end of the season. With only nine goals conceded Tuzlaspor the strongest defense of the third division. In addition, the offensive yield with 24 goals can be quite impressive. In this competitive season Tuzla lost so far only a single away game. The away game against Galatasaray will undoubtedly be the biggest challenge of the season. Even a score of the guests is rewarded at Galatasaray against Tuzlaspor with lucrative quotas. An away win would be a big sensation at the current prices.
