Galatasaray are going to find it difficult at the Sukru Saracoglu says Ismail Kartal [divider]
Galatasaray will find it extremely difficult to beat Fenerbahçe at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium according to manager Ismail Kartal.
“As I said before Galatasaray will find it difficult to play here, the stands will be full and the atmosphere will be amazing,” Kartal was quoted as saying by Eurosport TR.
The Yellow Canaries have a great record against Galatasaray at home. The last time the Lions beat the Canaries away was back in 1999.
Kartal has a number of injury concerns, Bekir Irtegun, Alper Poruk, Hasan Ali Kaldirim and Serdar Kesimal are all doubts.
Galatasaray are currently league leaders on 51 points but lead Beşiktaş on goal difference.
Hamza Hamzaoglu’s side will remain top of the league even in defeat against their rivals.
Hamzaoğlu will be without central midfielder Felipe Melo with injury.
Fenerbahçe will however, fall seven points behind Galatasaray with a win against the Yellow Canaries.
