Galatasaray v Umraniyespor
Nef Stadyumu, Sariyer, Istanbul, Turkey
1st February, 10:30 p.m.
A blockbuster Turkish League clash is upon us. The table-toppers Galatasaray are all set to welcome the relegation favourites Umraniyespor to their home turf.
Galatasaray, under the management of Okan Buruk, would be looking to create history by extending their 13-game unbeaten streak to 14 in all competitions. If they manage to beat Umraniyespor tonight, they will become the first team to win 14 consecutive games since 1959. Possessing extreme attacking prowess, it would be a big upset if the table-toppers succumbed to Umraniyespor, who are themselves in extremely poor form.
The challenge would be tough, and it will take a miracle from Umraniyespor to stop this ruthless Galatasaray side. Even a single point would be a massive achievement for Umraniyespor, as it would instil some confidence in them for future matches, which could help drive their fight against relegation from Turkey’s top flight division.
