Elazigspor v Galatasaray
Wednesday 22nd January: Live on Bet365 streaming 5.00pm
Current Turkish league champions Galatasaray face fellow Super Liga club Elazigspor on Tuesday evening in an intriguing clash which is being broadcast live on the Bet365 streaming service.
Crashing out in the 5th round last season, Roberto Mancini’s side have made it to the group stage this term and will be determined to make their presence felt in this tournament. Leading Group B with 4 points after 2 games, Galatasaray will be looking to stretch their points advantage and ultimately progress to the final stages of the competition.
With biggest rivals Fenerbahce already eliminated at the hands of minnows Fethiyespor in the 4th round, Galatasaray will be settling for no less than the Cup title after being rather disappointing in the league up until the winter break. Fenerbahce hold an 8 point lead at the top of the table over Galatasaray.
Elazigspor currently occupy 17th position in the Super Lig and will be hoping to stave off relegation, but immediate attention will be paid to the visit of the Champions on Tuesday night.
Galatasaray hold the advantage in recent meetings; beating them 2-1 in Istanbul in early December and also taking the spoils (1-0) in their last visit to The Elazig Ataturk Stadium back in April last year.
With Galatasaray undefeated in their last 11 games in all competitions, Elazigspor will have to pull out all the stops if they are to get anything from the game and hold on to 2nd place in the group and keep hopes up of progression into the final stages.
There is cause to be somewhat optimistic though. Losing just 1 of their last 6 games since mid December (a 4-1 loss at Besiktas), Elazigspor will at least have some confidence in their approach.
