Sensational football star Mauro Icardi, who is yet to fade away from mediocrity, sure did leave his mark at the Eryaman Stadyumu in their recent match against Ankaragucu as he fired his side to their first league title since 2018-19 as his brace and goals from Barış Alper Yılmaz and Sérgio Oliveira endured that they eked out a commanding 4:1 victory.
Prior to that, the ever-popping name, you guessed it, Mauro Icardi (not forgetting the brilliant performances from his teammates too) was yet again behind the success of Cimbon as his brace witnessed them eke out a convincing 2:0 victory against Sivasspor at home to secure all three points.
Playing at the NEF Stadyumu has seen them as a juggernaut of a side, as they have exceeded expectations ten-fold to dish out an impressive performance that has seen them without a loss in their last 16 matches, picking up 14 wins and 2 draws to accumulate 44 points, which is clear as day that their success this season has solely been built on their home form.
They presently occupy first place with 82 points, and though they've achieved their ambitions this season to be crowned champions, meaning there's nothing left to play for on their part, surely they'll want to finish the season on a high note by bagging all three points in this clash.
Probable Starting XI
Muslera; Boey, Nelsson, Bardakci, Karatas; Sergio Oliveira, Torreira, Mertens; Rashica, Icardi, Akturkoglu
The Yellow Canaries welcomed Antalyaspor to the Şükrü Saracoğlu, and they had no trouble romping to a convincing 2:0 victory thanks to goals from Enner Valencia and Miha Zajc.
Prior to that, they booked their ticket to the final of the Turkiye Kupasi competition as they had a clear edge over Sivasspor at home to eke out a commanding 3:0 victory thanks to second-half goals from Ferdi Kadioglu, Michy Batshuayi, and Joshua King.
Away from home, they have amassed 39 points in their last 17 matches, including 12 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses, and it goes without saying that they have been in consistent form. It's also worth noting that they are currently on an 11-match unbeaten run, picking up nine wins and two draws.
They presently occupy second place with 77 points and are three points ahead of Besiktas in third place. Securing all three points here could see them consolidate their position and hopefully conclude their season on a high note.

Expert Betting Tips
Galatasaray are on the hunt to inflict Fenerbahce with another unfavorable outcome as they seek to make it two wins in a row against them, having won the previous meeting 3:0 this season away from home.
Exacting revenge will be something in Fenerbahce's vocabulary in this clash; however, with the Turkiye Kupasi final around the corner seven days from now, it's still to be seen where their priorities lie.
Galatasaray have achieved their goal and can't be trusted to step up in this clash, nor can Fenerbahce, who have put the brakes on as they have once again lost out in clinching their first league title since 2013-14, and as such, we anticipate goals to be seen at both ends of the pitch here, where putting forth a defensive display will be the least of their worries.
