For the “Lions” nine players are on the injured list. Which players will be ready for the derby is currently not really in sight.

Galatasaray – Statistics & Current Form
Fatih Terim had announced changes after the poor results in recent matches. Surprisingly, many players have since joined the existing hospital. For example, it is no longer a secret that Younes Belhanda and Ryan Babel should be sold in the winter.
Presumably, the two offensive players for the rest of the first round ‘injury’ fail. The biggest problem child in the squad remains the long-term injured Radamel Falcao. All the more serious is the failure of Florin Andone. Currently, the “lions” have only one player who feels at home in the striker position.
The failures of Sener Özbayrakli and Christian Luyindama were last confirmed as well. Only behind the missions of Fernando Muslera and Mario Lemina is meanwhile still a question mark. Thus, Fatih Terim will have to change a lot in his game system.
In the home derby against Basaksehir Galatasaray builds mainly on their own home strength. The “Lions” are unbeaten in the Süper Lig seasonally for 41 home games. Already now a club-internal record was set up. In the previous five home games of the current league season there were three wins and two draws for Galatasaray.
Before the international break the Turkish champions won two games in a row and made some places well. With a victory on Friday evening Galatasaray can conquer the championship for the first time – at least one more game on the account.
The personal worries in the squad limit the options of Fatih Terim in the offensive significantly. But Galatasaray can not do much worse than before. With only 13 goals, the offensive of the “Emperor” was not exactly on the best side. For Galatasaray knew to convince at least on the defensive.
With only nine goals conceded the Turkish record champions currently the strongest bulwark of the Süper Lig. Links Galatasaray also in the derby and presents itself in the “new” offensive better, is at Galatasaray against Basaksehir a prediction on the home side quite obvious.

Basaksehir – Statistics & Current Form
From the crisis team to the championship candidate?

The footballers of the favorite club of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan can already conquer the championship lead on this match day, but have to get a derby victory for it.
In addition, Basaksehir also fights on the international stage for a ticket to the round of the last 32. With the away win over Wolfsberg in the last group match of the Europa League, the course has already been set. If Basaksehir wins the next home game against AS Roma, the Turkish representative moves prematurely into the knockout stages of the Europa League.
Thus, two important games for coach Okan Buruk and Basaksehir are on. The guests, unlike Galatasaray, can draw on the full range and are expected to arrive with full staff. Irfan Can Kahveci and Danijel Aleksic, both recently injured due to not in the squad, will probably be back in the squad.
