GOZTEPE V TRABZONSPOR
Goztepe drew 1-1 with Karagumruk last time out. This was a Karagumruk side that missed almost all their key players due to illness and Goztepe should have done much better. Against Trabzonspor they will struggle because Karaman has no recognised central defender available to him. A make-shift defence like that will not be able to contain the likes of Nwakaeme, Bakasetas, and the in-form Djaniny.
Trabzonspor also faced Karagumruk last time out, but they were 2-0 winners. Once again, Karagumruk were without some of their key players and Avci's team made the best of that. Against Goztepe, they will control possession and use intricate passes behind the defence to get their quick wingers into goal-scoring opportunities.
Prediction: Both teams to score
GALATASARAY V KONYASPOR
Galatasaray beat Antalyaspor 1-0 last time out. They dominated the game from the off and weren't even once threatened. They are at their best when they play a high-tempo, short-passing game and with the likes of Antalyali, Kilinc, and Fernandes regaining their form at the right moment, Terim's team looks like they've turned the corner. They will make the best of absences in Konyaspor's defence.
Konyaspor were held to a draw by Hatayspor last time out. They struggled creating clear chances against Hatay's solid defence, but they impressed with their own defending as well, not giving away any counter-attacking chances. They will defend deep here, but against a motivated Galatasaray side who have much more to play for, they are unlikely to get anything.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
