In a skirmish against Hatayspor before the international hiatus, the unimaginable unfolded as the defending champions were made to bow down in the presence of Hatayspor as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat on foreign territory. This is the second time this season that Okan Buruk's team has had to be denied the sought-after three points after playing out a goalless draw against Kayserispor in the opening match of the Turkish Super Lig campaign.
The revered RAMS Park has been an unyielding citadel of invulnerability, going 22 matches without suffering defeat, comprising 22 wins and 2 draws. With a three-match winning streak against their opponents in this impending encounter, there's no doubt that Gala are set for a rebound.
Having picked up 31 points from 12 matches played, Galatasaray sits second in the Turkish Super Lig standings, level on points with arch-rivals Fenerbahce in first place.
Probable Starting XI
Muslera; Boey, Sanchez, Bardakci, Tasende; Oliveira, Torreira; Zaha, Mertens, Akturkoglu; Icardi
Alanyaspor have been dragged to the darkest abyss in the Turkish Super Lig as their performance, which candidly speaking has been a miss lately. Their outing against Gaziantep at home was an opportunity to rekindle their confidence; however, a 3-0 defeat at the end of the day extended their losing streak in the league to four matches.
Away form hasn't done them any justice either, as they are yet to break free from the shackles of inconsistency, going winless in five matches, recording three losses and two draws. However, not the same can be said about their away form in this fixture, with three wins and a solitary in their last four matches, and hopefully that could see them get in the winning column and halt a three-match losing run against Okan Buruk's charges.
Having picked up 10 points from 12 matches played, Alanyaspor occupy 17th place within the relegation zone level, 16th placed Konyaspor outside the drop zone, and three points behind 14th-placed Ankaragucu.
Probable Starting XI
Taskiran; Augusto, Bayir, Aliti, Ozdemir; Karaca, Novais, Richard, Eduardo; Janvier, Cordova

Never in their wildest dreams did Galatasaray expect their first loss of the season to come at the hands of a Hatayspor side who not so long ago were embroiled in a relegation battle, but that's not something they'll want to beat themselves about as they look to bounce back to winning ways after the international break, which has somewhat given them some time to recuperate.
With Gala losing only one of their last seven matches against Alanyaspor coupled with their current three-match winning streak, this should fairly be a walk in the park for the defending champions, whom we feel may win by a sizeable margin.
