The finalists of the Türkiye Kupasi will be determined this week. Although Galatasaray is top favorite, for the “Lions” the Turkish Cup is only secondary. The Turkish record champions have after the recent dropout of championship leader Basaksehir again high hopes of winning the league title. Only three points separate Galatasaray from Basaksehir, which is why the focus of “Imperator” Fatih Terim is also placed on the title race in the Süper Lig. After the goalless draw from the Cup first leg against Malatyaspor, more of the “lions” will have to come in the second leg, even if the thoughts are already in the league game against Konyaspor. The chance for the Anatolian club from Malatya?

Football Betting Tips Malatyaspor vs Galatasaray

Yeni Malatyaspor has been an uncomfortable opponent for top clubs from Turkey since joining Süper Lig. Thus, the Anatolian club has been able to establish since the rise in 2016/17 in the highest Turkish league. After the draw with the home strong “lion” the Anatolian club wants to land the big coup and eliminate Galatasaray from the cup.

Malatyaspor – Statistics & Current Form

Yeni Malatyaspor certainly has not the individual quality, which brings the Turkish record champions with it, for the Anatolian club benefits from an enormously good team play. With Erol Bulut Malatyaspor also has a pretty successful coach since the rise. Born in Bad Schwalbach German-Turk has brought the team since 2017 on guard. Yeni Malatyaspor had set a milestone with the rise in the highest Turkish league in the still young club history. A cup title, two years after the promotion to the Süper Lig? Close enough to touch!

Yeni Malatyaspor put on again a remarkable season. In the first round, the Bulut team was one of the league’s strongest teams. The back round performance of the team, however, was less pleasing. Only one of the last eleven league games could win Malatyaspor and is therefore now in eighth place in the table. In the Süper Lig Bulut Elf can end the season, but the team is in the Türkiye Kupasi again in demand. After the 0-0 draw from the first leg of the cup, Yeni Malatyaspor has to take advantage of the home advantage and solve the final ticket.

At home Yeni Malatyaspor lost only against Konyaspor, Basaksehir and Besiktas in this competitive season. Games against traditional clubs like Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Trabzonspor were won this season. In the cup second leg against Galatasaray, especially the passing game of the Bulut-Elf will have to improve. With an average of 314.6 passes per game Yeni Malatyaspor has the worst passing game of the Süper Lig. Especially in the second half of the miserable performances were shown in the games. In the league match against Galatasaray Yeni Malatyaspor barely took part in the game, had had 33% possession and only a measly 175 passes the opponent to act at will. At home, the team seemed to have changed and presented itself almost entirely strong.

Galatasaray – Statistics & Current Form

Hungry lions on the way to the next championship? It seems like it’s just a matter of time before the Turkish champions beat the Süper Lig throne. Until the showdown against Basaksehir there are only a few games left. The gap to the leaders is currently only three points. In the strong back round form, the “lions” only seems to be able to stop Basaksehir himself. “Imperator” Terim will be full of optimism after the suspension of Basaksehir to get the eighth championship title as Galatasaray coach.

The double burden will not do much good in the crucial season, but the final round at Türkiye Kupasi is just a step away. The “lions” have not shown themselves in the Turkish Cup so far from the best side, but that’s not really surprising. In the last few years, presumed top favorites have been eliminated early because the Turkish Cup was simply not given the necessary attention. Last year was the end for the “lions” in the semifinals – there is the Déjà-vu, lucrative odds can be tapped at Yeni Malatyaspor against Galatasaray.

The only player who played consistently at a high level in Malatya was Selcuk Inan. Since then, the team has evolved significantly and yet remain the “lions” in the distance a manageable opponent. After the weak away performances also speaks in the Cup second leg between Yeni Malatyaspor and Galatasaray little for a forecast in favor of the Terim Elf.

Expected formation of Galatasaray:
↪ Muslera – Tasdemir, Marcao, Luyindama, Mariano – Fernando – Akbaba, Belhanda, Ndiaye, Feghouli – Diagne
