Pendikspor resumed league action on a somber note, suffering a morale-crushing 4-1 defeat at the hands of Istanbul Basaksehir away from home, with Erencan Yardımcı's first half goal being a beacon of hope amidst the defeat.
Ivo Vieira's men, on a quest for redemption, have been gifted with home advantage, although the Pendik Stadium may turn out to be their unfortunate demise, more of a blessing having won one of their six matches, a 1-0 triumph over Samsunspor, which was their first maiden home win having been on a five-match winless run (L3 D2).
With 13 points collected from 13 matches played, Pendikspor occupy 16th place in the Turkish Super Lig standings, one point ahead of the relegation zone and three points behind 11th-placed Ankaragucu.

Expert Betting Tips
Galatasaray have built a strong squad this season, and despite their minor setback in the Champions League group stage campaign, they should have more than enough class and quality to see off minnows Pendikspor, who have hit below expectations this season.
The only meeting between these two sides was a club friendly on February 22nd, which witnessed Galatasaray win 3-1. Given that the visitors have lost one of their ten away matches in the league (W8 L1), a run that stretches to the previous season, a comfortable win could be on the cards, where Pendikspor might as well be on the scoreboard in this one, having found the back of the net in five of their six home matches.
