Okan’s Betting Tips – Galatasaray S.K. vs Beşiktaş J.K.

“Istanbul’s derby is one of the most important events in the season for the teams out of the ‘Big Three’. Besiktas comes up as a better team than Galatasaray in last 10 games played between both teams. However, this season The Lions are doing way better job than The Eagles. They are currently unbeaten in the nine home games, they’ve scored in the last 14 league matches and they conceded 12 fewer goals than their opponent. Also, Galatasaray has been playing a quick and aggressive football which translated into fast goals on the pitch. The Yellow-Reds have scored 15 goals in the first half out of 25 in the home games this season. Besiktas is without a doubt a weaker opponent in this clash with a very poor record in the 2019/20 away matches (they won only five out of 12 games). Also, they have the least draws this season, only four. It’s always hard to predict and give a verdict on a football match when it comes to clubs like Galatasaray and Besiktas playing with each other. Both teams are very competitive, so it’s very likely to see a huge exchange of fire.”

  1. Galatasaray – 23/20*
  2. First Galatasaray to Score – 3/4*
  3. Galatasaray to Score in Both Halves – 2/1*
  4. Win to Nil Galatasaray – 14/5*
