Galatasaray U19 vs Osmanlıspor U19 Prediction and Preview – 14.01.18

Osmanlıspor U19 have taken just one point from their last three Turkey Championship U19. matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Osmanlıspor U19 are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Galatasaray U19 should prove no easy feat either – Osmanlıspor U19 haven’t won against any Turkey Championship U19. leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Galatasaray U19 have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Galatasaray U19 dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Turkey Championship U19.’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Galatasaray U19 are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Galatasaray U19 and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Galatasaray U19’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Osmanlıspor U19 are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Osmanlıspor U19 took a point away from Galatasaray U19 (1-1 draw).

Notably, Galatasaray U19’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Galatasaray U19 have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Turkey Championship U19. away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Osmanlıspor U19, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Osmanlıspor U19 getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Osmanlıspor U19 are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Galatasaray U19 hold the best away record in the Turkey Championship U19. (W8 D2 L1). Osmanlıspor U19’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Galatasaray U19’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Galatasaray U19ns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Galatasaray U19 win at 15/2 with bet365.
