Galatasaray vs Istanbulspor: Super Lig 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

On Thursday, Galatasaray hosts Istanbulspor at the Ali Sami Yen Stadium in what appears to be a lopsided Super Lig matchup. Galatasaray recently joined rivals Fenerbahce at the top of the table, while Istanbulspor continues to languish at the bottom, significantly distant from safety.

Galatasaray, with an impressive 14-game home winning streak, recently narrowed the gap to Fenerbahce by delivering a remarkable away performance. Led by Wilfried Zaha, they dominated the reigning champions Trabzonspor 5-1, showcasing Zaha’s prowess with two goals and an assist. This response followed Fenerbahce’s unexpected draw with Samsunspor, resulting in both teams being tied at an extraordinary 54 points from 21 games in their intense title race. While Fenerbahce maintains a superior goal difference, Galatasaray, buoyed by recent success, hopes for a rival stumble. Their favorable schedule against bottom-six teams adds to their optimistic outlook under Okan Buruk.

Istanbulspor, currently bottom of the table, faces an uphill battle with a three-point deduction for abandoning a match against Trabzonspor. Despite recent improvements, they remain 12 points from safety. Back-to-back clean sheets and five points in the last three games show signs of recovery. Notably, they secured their first away win since early February, defeating Kayserispor 1-0. However, their survival hopes hinge on crucial upcoming home matches against Samsunspor and Gaziantep. A challenging task awaits against the champions, and failure to secure six points in the upcoming games may diminish their chances of a miraculous escape.

Galatasaray probable starting lineup: Muslera, Boey, Nelsson, Sanchez, B A Yilmaz, Demirbay, Torreira, Zaha, Mertens, Akturkoglu, Icardi
