Both Teams To Score – Yes
Last season's head-to-heads were won by Galatasaray. In both cases, the result was 3:1. And in the older examples, we also see that both teams concede goals in their matches. Yet, it is more important to analyze the current state of both teams.
Galatasaray was surprisingly unable to score in their last two league matches. As a comparison, they netted 8 goals in the first four rounds. At the same time, the team has conceded at least one in 5/6 matches this season which is enough for us to believe that Goztepe has a good chance of scoring on Saturday. For instance, Goztepe's three away games this season ended like this: 1:1, 2:2, 2:1.
Alternative 1st Half Goal Line – Over 1.0
Since we are expecting to see at least several goals in this match, we can search for one or two before half time. You already read about the recent performances for both teams and there were goals before half time in almost all cases. If there is a single goal before the break, our bet will be void and our money returned. In the case of two, we win it all.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Galatasaray is the perfect team for this market. Despite the bad recent results, the team plays attacking football and often gains 10+ corners. For instance, here are the stats for all 6 league matches this season in corners: 12, 16, 10, 18, 6, 9. In turn, here are Goztepe's stats in corners: 12, 8, 8, 12, 5, 10. Not as impressive but it means that Goztepe also gain corners which makes this bet even more plausible.
