Kasimpasa will be hosting Galatasaray this weekend in a game where both sides will feel the need to win for a variety of reasons.
Firstly, Kasimpasa ended up being slightly outplayed earlier in the season by Fenerbahce, thus, losing 3-2 at home. They could have scored more goals in that game, but in the end, they ended up getting a more than fair result.
Galatasaray also lost to Fenerbahce by a score of 2-0, but that was away from home. In addition, they were humbled against a 10-man Real Madrid who were also without Cristiano Ronaldo for the entirety of their encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu.
This was nothing short of an embarrassment. Losing to a team with 10 men who were without their superstar from the beginning is something that can only be blamed on the players and head coach, Roberto Mancini. All of those involved should truly be ashamed of themselves.
Anyways, Kasimpasa has surprisingly done well for themselves under Georgian head coach, Shota Arveladze, who has commanded his ship quite admirably. The team always bounces back from tough losses and has earned some unforgettable wins after building up a squad of decent players.
Galatasaray will have to play an attacking style where they constantly pressure their opponents because with a bit of room, they can make a lot happen. Judging by the way Gala played in Madrid, they will absolutely want to find a way to bounce back as soon as possible, and Kasimpasa is the perfect stop for that goal.
Prediction: Kasimpasa 1, Galatasaray 2
The home side will score first, but the visitors will then wake up and net a double quite easily.
