Galatasaray make the trip to Bursaspor today, and will be confident of taking yet another win, in turn increasing their lead at the top of the Turkish Super Lig.
The current champions are once again the dominant force they are renowned for after a few years in the background, and the way things are going at the moment it’s hard to picture any other team challenging for the title.

Galatasaray have lost just 3 of their 19 games in an otherwise congested league, with very few teams being able to stamp their authority and create a gap between their rivals. Just 7 points separate 2nd placed Besiktas and 11th placed Kayserispor, and Galatasaray’s opponents Bursaspor sit between both of them in 8th place on 27 points.
Bursaspor will have to improve on recent performances if they are to hold Galatasaray. With just 1 win in their last 5 in all competitions, Bursa have only hit the back of the net once in their last 3 games, a rather worrying goal shortage.
Galatasaray have had a couple of blips recently too. A 2-1 loss to Kasimpasa was rather unexpected, especially after Johan Elmander put them in the lead early in the first half. However normality was resumed last weekend when they beat fierce rivals Besiktas 2-1, and that confidence booster should be enough to see the current champions take the points today.
Bursapor have a solid enough home record this term, losing just 2 of their 10 games and only conceding 8 goals. However Galatasaray have the quality required to give them a beating, and at attractive odds of 21/20 with Bet365 it may be wise to invest a bit of cash on them taking the points.
The home side are 5/2 to pick up their 5th home win of the season, with the draw trading at the same price.
