◾️Istanbul Basaksehir did not go very well in this championship, the change of coach in the summer putting his mark on the first evolutions of the current season.

Football Prediction of the Day Galatasaray vs Istanbul BB
Both Galatasaray and Basaksehir are clear candidates for the title of champion and this season. Especially since we are talking about the first two ranked at the end of the previous championship. Both are now in the front platoon, at two points of the first position, so the stake is a very big one even though we are only at the end of the first third of the championship. There are teams that benefit in the same measure of offensive lines and very strong defenses, with big names in the component, but priority in these games between the big teams remains the defensive game. That is why, possibly, we will have a game in which it will not score very much and in the foreground will be the players in the defense.
