Galatasaray vs Trabzonspor Kick Off Time
NAME: Galatasaray – Trabzonspor
DATE: 5 Feb 2023
TIME: 16:00 UTC
VENUE: Nef Stadyumu, Istanbul, Turkey
Galatasaray will be attempting to strengthen their position at the top of the Super Lig table when they face current champions Trabzonspor on Sunday.
At a time when the home side are six points clear, Trabzonspor are down in sixth spot, albeit just two points behind third-placed Istanbul Basaksehir.
Following a season where they could only finish in 13th spot, Galatasaray are now dominant at the top of Super Lig, helped by a 11-match winning streak.
That almost came to an end last time out, Okan Buruk’s team trailing Umraniyespor at half time before two goals from Mauro Icardi helped his side register a 3-2 victory.
The Argentine now has a sensational eight strikes and five assists from just 832 minutes of football in the top flight during 2022-23, taking him joint-top of the Galatasaray scoring charts alongside Bafetimbi Gomis.
However, one of the rare occasions when Galatasaray have failed to win in the league this term came versus Sunday’s opponents, the reverse fixture ending goalless.
Barring a miracle, Trabzonspor’s title defence is going to end in failure, and they are already focused on trying to close the seven-point gap to second-placed Fenerbahce.
Three defeats have been posted in their last seven outings, more than they suffered in their first 14 games of the season, and Abdullah Avci’s side had to work hard to overcome lowly Antalyaspor last time out.
