Bursaspor can defy out-of-form Galatasaray

Bursa have only lost four home games this season

Igor Tudor's Galatasaray are struggling
1 of 1

Turkish Super Lig

Three defeats in their last four games, including against bitter rivals Fenerbahce last time out, have extinguished any chances of Galatasaray launching a late bid for the Turkish Super Lig title and the Istanbul giants are worth opposing against Bursaspor.

Bursa are languishing in the bottom half of the table but they've only lost four of their 14 matches at the Timsah Arena this season and picked up a 1-1 draw against third-placed Fenerbahce.

They will be looking to frustrate a Galatasaray side who haven't been in the best of form on the road, winning just once in six matches in all competitions, and their sole victory coming courtesy of a 96th-minute Eren Derdiyok winner against Antalyaspor.

Gala appointed former Juventus defender Igor Tudor as manager in February in the hope that he could inspire a title challenge, or at least qualify for the Champions League, but just two wins since then have left the Yellow-Reds struggling to hold onto fourth place.

Despite this, bookmakers rate them a shade of odds-against to earn maximum points but Bursa's home record suggests they may offer better value.

The hosts are 11-4 for the victory but bet365 offer 5-6 about Bursa or the draw in their double chance market and that price looks fair enough when considering Gala's recent struggles.
