Galatasaray may well have successfully defended their Turkish Super Lig title with games to spare, but fans and players alike will want to finish the season with a bang when Trabzonspor visit the Turk Telekom Arena on Saturday evening.
Fatih Terim and his team will be disappointed in last weeks 2-1 loss to bitter rivals Fenerbahce, although the title was already won of course. Today’s game gives the players a chance to make it up to their expectant fans, and while they are very strong favourites to take the spoils, Trabzonspor have hit a nice patch of form in the last few weeks and will hope to push their opponents all the way.

However, Trabzonspor may have something else on their mind. After beating Sivasspor 6-0 ten days ago in the semi final, Tolunay Kafkas must prepare his team for a Cup final showdown with Fenerbahce on Wednesday, a repeat of the final in which they won 3-1 back in 2010.
Goals have been hard to come by in the last two meetings between Galatasaray and Trabzonspor, both ending in goalless draws. However, the pressure is off both teams now in terms of the league and we may well see an open and flowing game.
Bet365 make the champions a 1/2 chance to sign off their season in style, while Trabzonspor can be backed at 6/1 with the same firm. A third consecutive draw between these teams is available at 3/1.
The game is being shown live via Bet 365’s streaming service, and as well as giving some clues into how the game is going before committing to a bet, the atmosphere is sure to be a great spectacle in the Turk Telekom Arena.
