Galatasaray no longer plans to miss the Super League title, and on Saturday night it will start its new campaign with a match played on its own field, against the team coached by Marius Sumudica, Gaziantep.
Galatasaray continues to disappoint by completely missing the previous season. Fatih Terim’s students finished the season in 6th place, suffering 3 defeats in the last 5 stages.
This team has always evolved much better on its own field, and the poor course of the previous season is largely due to poor away games.
He has one of the most valuable teams in the first league of Turkey and it is clear that for the new season the goal will be to win the title of champion.
In the training period before the new season, he played in 3 friendly matches against lower echelon teams from Turkey and recorded 2 victories and a draw.
The group coached by Marius Sumudica was one of the pleasant surprises of the previous season.
In the first season since being promoted to the Super Lig, Gaziantep ranked 8th and ended the season with 8 consecutive unbeaten matches.
In the preseason he played 3 friendlies, registering 2 victories (3-2 with Denizlispor & 5-0 with Eskisehirspor) and one defeat (0-1 with Kayserispor).
He has not lost any of the last 4 trips made in the Super League.

Football Prediction of the Day Galatasaray vs Gaziantep
The last direct confrontation played in Istanbul was extremely spectacular and ended with a draw, score 3-3.
This time I expect a similar match, in which goals will not be missing. Galatasaray continued to disappoint from season to season, while Gaziantep was one of the pleasant surprises of the previous campaign, ranking 8th in the first season since promotion.
For Gaziantep, the atmosphere in the locker room is excellent, as is the morale of the players.
This team has improved following the transfers made recently and taking into account the motivating power of Marius Sumudica, I see Gaziantep able to score at least once on Saturday night.
Prediction Today: Gaziantep over 0.5 goals
