Akhisarspor vs Galatasaray / Turkish Cup – The final of the Turkish Cup is marked with an interesting detail since the first and last placed in the Super Lig table meet. Not only that, but Akhisarspor has already been relegated to the second-division, while Galatasaray is very close to win the title. We should add that Akhisarspor is the title defender in the Cup, while on top if they won Galatasaray in the Super cup after penalty shootout. Each team won their league head-to-head played at home.
Akhisarspor vs Galatasaray begins 15.05.2019 at 19:45 CET
Akhisarspor is definitely a very strange team. It seems to have to different personalities and this manifests for the second season in a row. Last season Akhisarspor totally unexpectedly won the Turkish Cup after elimination of Galatasarayin the semi-finals, and victory over Fenerbahce in the final. On the other hand they made quite modest achievement in the Turkish Super Lig where they ended up in the bottom half of table. At the beginning of this season they won the champion, which is Galatasaray, in the Super Cup and then again played very well in the Cup and dreadfully in the championship where will end up nailed to the bottom, meaning they will be relegated from the Super Lig. Number of players is injured and manager Kavcak doesn’t have much choice to assemble the team for the final match.
Probable lineups Akhisarspor: Ozturk – Vrsajevic, Rotman, Osmanpasa, Keles – Sissoko – Barbosa, Yavru, Ceviker, Manu – Bokila
Galatasaray is in race for both Turkish titles this season, and soon everything will be resolved given that next week they face Basaksehir in the league. The Cup final should be an easier job, however, they have burnt their fingers on the same opponent in the semi-final of last year’s Cup and Super Cup this season. They also lost away match with Akhisarspor by 3-0 in the league. Galatasaray didn’t lose for a long time but they were quite lucky last weekend when they won Rizespor thanks to goals scored in the added time. Forward Mitroglou is still out of action and the same team that played several previous matches could start this one too.
Probable lineups Galatasaray: Muslera – Mariano, Luyindama, Marcao, Nagatomo – Donk – Feghouli, Fernando, Badou, Onyekuru – Diagne
Akhisarspor vs Galatasaray PICK
It is logical to expect that Galatasaray effortlessly win the title but Akhisarspor plays so good in the Cup that we simply cannot write them off in advance. They have been relegated from the Turkish Super Lig and will give their best here. We believe that Akhisarspor will be a tough nut to crack at neutral ground in Siva.
Pick: Asian handicap +1.5 Akhisarspor
Odds: 1.67 at bet365 (down to 1.57 can be played)
