1.Terim’s men had scored two or more goals in 100% of encounters so far.
2.They have a perfect unbeaten record against this rival over the years.
3.100% of encounters at this stadium had five or more goals.
4.The latest match-up at this stadium had ended with teams sharing the spoils – as the game ended 3-3.
The Lions are former champions of the competition, and are easily one of the very best teams in the league. They did miss out on the title the last year, but this time around they are determined to have that crown back.
Likely, they need to set a tone for their campaign early itself, and a huge win in the opening match-up would be a perfect start to their season.
It helps that they are at home, and that they are taking on a team that were promoted at the end of 2018-19 season.
Not just that – but Terim’s men also do have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes in the past, and they have also scored two or more goals in every single such game – disregarding one fixture.
And finally, also note that they were unbeaten in 17 of the preceding 18 home appearances, and this sole loss had come against one of the best teams in the league in 2019-20 – Trabzonspor.
On the other hand, Marius Sumudica’s men were winless in 14 of their preceding 15 road trips.
Taking into account all these observations, expect a Galatasaray win this weekend.
