Kick Off: Friday 19th April
Live on Bet365 Streaming 7.00pm
With just five game remaining in the Turkish Super Lig, current champions Galatasaray sit 4 points clear of bitter rivals Fenerbahce at the top of the league, and can stretch their lead with a win over Elazigspor this evening at the Turk Telekom Arena.
With just their loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League sitting amongst 6 consecutive wins at domestic level, Galatasaray really are on top form at the moment, and you have to worry just how much damage they will do to 13th placed Elazigspor who have won just once away form home in their last 7 games (a 1-0 win over 15th places Akhisar).

With the combined force of Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder amongst the Galatasaray ranks it’s hard to see anything but a home win for the champions today. Former Chelsea icon Drogba has struck 3 goals in his last 3 games, and former Real Madrid and Inter Milan star Sneijder has also netted twice in recent games.
The home and away form of these two teams is pretty contrasting. Galatasaray have a home record of W10 D2 L2 while Elazigspor have an away record of W3 D5 L6 (conceding 25 goals in the process.
The reverse fixture played back in November finished 1-0 in favour of Galatasaray, but playing at the Turk Telekom Arena in front of a hugely supportive home fanbase should see them win a bit more comfortably this time around.
Bet365 make Galatasaray red hot favourites at 1/4 to win the game, with Elazigspor a huge 12/1 to take the victory. The draw is priced up at 11/2.
I really can’t see anything but a Galatasaray win tonight, and will be watching the action live via Bet365 streaming as well as having a bet. A victory here will put a huge amount of pressure on Fenerbahce to get a result at the weekend.
