Galatasaray vs Akhisar Belediyespor Football Betting Tips and Predicitons

The new coach Mehmet Altiparmak has already led Gazisehir Gaziantep into the Süper Lig recently and now wants to accelerate the same ascent with Akhisarspor. In the Süper Kupa Galatasaray against Akhisar Belediyespor according to odds is clear favorite and anything but a prediction on the home side will probably be very daring in this case. Due to the large difference in quality between the two teams a runaway victory of the record champion is almost inevitable.
Galatasaray – Statistics & Current Form
Back to business! The Turkish champions will start the new competitive season with the Super Cup against Akhisarspor and are already aiming for the next title win. In the last season, Gala won the double on the national level and thus meets in the Super Cup on Akhisarspor, the final opponent in the Turkish Cup. Already last year, the “lions” in the final of this competition ran against the Anatolian club and lost against the underdog on penalties. Unlike the previous year, Akhisar is not a big hurdle in this Super Cup edition as a second division, which is also illustrated by the Galatasaray against Akhisar Belediyespor odds.
The “Lions” have a decisive trump card on their side, in addition to the stronger squad, especially with successful coach Fatih Terim. No other Turkish coach has won as many club-level titles as Terim. However, since 2016 Galatasaray could no longer win the Turkish Super Cup. But with 15 titles, the “lions” still lead the statistics. This year Fatih Terim wants to build on the strong second half of last season and fix the 23rd league title in the Süper Lig. In contrast to the previous season, Galatasaray’s activities in the transfer market started early, which is why “Imperator” Terim was able to draw on his new signings.
Numerous new players should provide more relief, especially in the middle of the squad. With the loan of Jean Michael Seri, the “lions” were also able to get an important offensive man in the squad. In addition, came with Ryan Babel and Emre Mor promising offensive players, even though the latter was often criticized in the past because of his indiscipline. However, Mor’s most recent test match performance was notable, so it remains to be seen how the Turkish youngster will progress under Fatih Terim. It is quite possible that Emre Mor will already be in the starting eleven squad in the Super Cup.
The changes in the cadres of the “lions” do not seem to have ended yet. After leaving Ndiaye, Onyekuru and Fernando also players like Diagne are still on the siding. According to recent media reports, the “lions” want to reinforce themselves with Radamel Falcao, which would mean that a departure from Diagne to Al Rayyan seems almost fix. In the Super Cup against Akhisarspor Diagne anyway is not in the squad, as well as offensive player Feghouli. The ailing Jimmy Durmaz is expected to be spared. In Galatasaray against Akhisar Belediyespor wave for a tip on the “Lions” just once odds from 1.30.
Expected formation of Galatasaray:
➱ Muslera – Linnes, Luyindama, Marcao, Nagatomo – Donk, Belhanda, Seri – Babel, Buyuk, Mor

Akhisar Belediyespor – Statistics & Current Form
After relegation to the TFF 1. Lig, the second Turkish league, there is at least a consolation for the fans of Akhisarspor with the commitment of the new coach Mehmet Altiparmak. The former coach of Gazisehir Gaziantep made the Süper Lig promotion with Gaziantep with a strong finish of the season and continues his career with Akhisar after failed negotiations with his former club. The resurrection is set as the goal, but after the departures in the summer, the future for Akhisar seems rather unclear. With new head coach and the change in the summer break Akhisarspor could expect a nasty surprise in the Super Cup.
The Cup title in 2018 and the subsequent Super Cup victory against Galatasaray were the biggest successes in the club history of Akhisarspor. The subsequent descent was actually almost foreseeable, because after the numerous coach changes was a clear game system at Akhisar hardly recognizable. The desired changes were largely absent, so the descent was inevitable. In the Turkish Cup, Akhisarspor missed the title defense last season and lost out to Galatasaray in the final.
Last season Akhisarspor set the weakest defense of the Süper Lig with 54 goals conceded. The defections of defensive players like Yumlu, Osmanpasa, Lopes and Yavru aggravate the situation even further. In addition, left with Güray Vural and Elvis Manu two important offensive players the club. Manu led the internal scoring list last season and was the only bright spot in the squad. Proper reinforcements did not materialize due to limited financial resources.
Altiparmak certainly had a fortunate hand in Gazisehir Gaziantep, yet his performance as a coach should not be overly praised. Gazisehir was already at the beginning of the season to the hot promotion candidates and was qualitatively strong. In contrast, Altiparmak does not expect an easy task at Akhisarspor, especially as it is not clear how the team will be after the numerous departures. To be successful in the Super Cup seems to be unrealistic with the squad, so Galatasaray against Akhisar Belediyespor would not be expected to score.
Expected formation of Akhisar Belediyespor:
➱ Degirmenci – Vrsajevic, Babacan, Kuru, Keles – Ataseven, Rotman – Ajnane, Carlos, Ayik – Bayar
Last matches of Akhisar Belediyespor:
