Our football match prediction:
Against all odds, Galatasaray suffered a 2-0 loss to Ostersunds at Jamkraft Arena in the first leg of the Europa League second qualifying round. The Turks failed to impress in the first leg, but they are definitely capable of overcoming the deficit in front of home fans. Over the years the Lions have turned their Turk Telekom Stadyumu into a real fortress and it has to be noted that they suffered only one defeat in previous ten matches at home in the Europa League. Summer signing Bafetimbi Gomis is determined to score his first goal for the Turkish outfit and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in the return leg. Ostersunds played above expectations in the 2-0 win over Galatasaray, but we do not believe that they are capable of upsetting Igor Tudor’s men in Thursday’s football match at Turk Telekom Stadyumu.
