Galatasaray are capable of beating Fenerbahçe at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium according to Lions captain Selçuk Inan.
“The derbies are always different to other games and we are under no illusion that it will be tough but if we win we go seven points clear,” Inan told Eurosport Tr.
“We believe we can win the league and can beat Fenerbahçe.”
Galatasaray are currently first in the Süper Lig on 51 points after 22 games this season.
Fenerbahçe are currently in third place on 47 points and will drop seven points behind the league leaders if they lose the Intercontinental derby.
Akhisar ended the Yellow Canaries 33 match unbeaten home run last week.
Fenerbahçe have a great record against Galatasaray at home. The last time the Lions beat the Canaries away was back in 1999.
Beşiktaş are currently in second place and could join Galatasaray at the top of the table with a win against Sivasspor if Fenerbahçe beat the Lions.
