Neftci vs Galatasaray Match Preview

The Lions had to watch their arch-rivals Istanbul Basaksehir displace them from the top in the Turkish Super Lig last year, and win the title. To say that Fatih Terim's men were hurt, would be an understatement.

And all these pent-up emotions will surely drive them this season. They are determined to win the throne back at any cost, and will be surely targeting a deep run in the Europa League.

And for that, they need to overcome this challenge in the qualification rounds.

They are pitted against the Oil Workers from the Azerbaijan Premier League this Thursday, comparatively a weak league in Europe.

Considering the recent form of the Turkish contingent, and the quality of their domestic league, expect a winning performance from Galatasaray this Thursday.

Neftci vs Galatasaray Prediction

Fizuli Mammedov's men lost their latest fixture 0-2. More than that, they have played a total of three fixtures in the past six months, and this is definitely going to make them rusty.

On the other hand, their counterparts have been playing official fixtures for the past three months, and in fact have been absolutely balling it. They are unbeaten in their past six match-ups, and had scored two or more goals in four of these six fixtures.

Also note that they had kept clean sheets in two of their past four games.

Going on, the Oil Workers are not only rusty, but they are also from comparatively a far weak league than that of the Super Lig.

To put it in perspective - Mammedov's men regularly compete against lighter oppositions, whereas Terim's men take on some of the best clubs in Europe. In addition, they are absolutely driven this campaign to take back their domestic title.

By all means, expect a Galatasaray win this Thursday.
