Galatasaray – Statistics & Current Form
This year Galatasaray started with three wins in three competitive games. The Turkish record champion was able to win all games to zero and starts ambitious in the new calendar year. In addition to the exciting title race in the Süper Lig, the “Lions” will also compete for the title in the Turkish Cup. With Basaksehir and Fenerbahce knocking down the next trophy favorites, Galatasaray could march through to the Cup final. But it must be remembered that the “lions” are also represented in the Europa League. Due to the bad weather and the game cancellation in the cup first leg, this second leg had to be postponed for a week. At the weekend still a narrow away win in Göztepe landed, should be achieved in the cup at home the next round – and also with the second guard. As with Galatasaray vs. Boluspor clarify the odds, Terim is likely to spare his performers. In the Süper Lig Galatasaray is meanwhile unbeaten 29 home games in a row. In a 6-0 home win swept Galatasaray downright Ankaragücü from the square. With the twelfth man in the back, the self-confidence of the Turkish record champions is simply enormous; That’s what the Anatolian clubs have heard recently. Even if the second guard should play here in the second leg, the self-assured appearance of the Terim-Elf can be assumed.
Players like Cipe, who are otherwise unable to play in the Süper Lig, were able to prove themselves in the Cup match. Cipe, who replaces Muslera as keeper in the cup, was able to convince as a youngster in goal and was instrumental in ensuring that Galatasaray won the game to zero. Also players like Yunus Akgün and Gökay Güney were able to reap praise from Terim. In the second leg we will certainly see these players again on the field. Also newcomer Tasdemir should come in the Cup second leg to the course. Galatasaray certainly has no commendable squad, but the qualitative difference between the Turkish record champions and the second division is nevertheless enormous. It does not say much at Galatasaray against Boluspor for a tip against the hosts – or yet?

Boluspor – Statistics & Current Form
Boluspor split up with Ismail Haktan Odabasi after Galatasaray’s first-leg tie. The offensive player has had to harvest harsh criticism after his numerous top-class chances against Galatasaray and ultimately separated from Boluspor. Too weak was his appearance against the “lions” and his chances were lost Bolu expensive. A progress for the second division is now possible only after away win in Istanbul. Last weekend Boluspor drew with Interimscoach Bahadir Kiyak a 3-0 victory over Elazigspor. Even in the Cup second leg Kiyak could probably lead the team on the field. Although the former Boluspor player has worked in the youth section, it still does not seem that Necip Carikci (club president) can find a quick fix. In the Cup final Boluspor had a surprising number of chances against Galatasaray. In the end, Bolu could use but none of the eleven shots on goal. Especially in the closing stages of the second division had turned up properly and put the weak defensive of the traditional club from Istanbul under pressure. A cup-off against Galatasaray would certainly be tolerable, because Boluspor had great chances in the Turkish Cup anyway not calculated. In the second leg Bolu now has nothing to lose and can play freely – and that’s what makes the second division so dangerous.
At the weekend Elazigspor could be shot down in a 3: 0, too high praise should this home win but not then. That’s what Bolu has to start with in the cup. At the weekend it comes in the fight for the playoffs in the second Turkish League against the table neighbors Ümraniyespor. If Bolu, as in the league in the second leg should present so offensive and this time uses the opportunities, the second division could certainly be good for one or the other goal. In the second Turkish league Boluspor is one of the strongest away teams. Most recently, none of the last four away matches could be won. For our Galatasaray vs. Boluspor prediction we would not want to exclude a scorching match in Istanbul.
