There is yet another Istanbul derby on offer in the Euroleague and there is a clear favourite for this game. Home advantage may not make a lot of difference on nights like this but it is the hosts who are likely to take control of this game. Fenerbahce have a 12-7 record at this stage of the season and they welcome Galatasaray, who have a 6-13 record coming into this Thursday night clash.
While the teams have met on numerous occasions in domestic action, they have only clashed once in Euroleague action. That was earlier on this season when Fenerbahce triumphed by a score of 87-103. That was a big night for Kostas Sloukas who delivered 24 points and 7 assists over the course of the evening. Austin Daye was a big player for Galatasaray that night, offering 16 points.

Galatasaray won well in Euroleague action earlier this week
There are a few players who can make a difference for Fenerbahce which is just as well considering they are likely to be without Ekpe Udoh for this game. Udoh has missed his side’s last two matches and he is a doubt for this clash. When you consider Udoh has clocked up an average of 12.2 points per game and 7.5 rebounds per match, this will be a big loss for any side. However, Sloukas can be trusted, offering an average of 11.4 points per game and Jan Vesely has provided an average of 10.9 points per game over the season so far.
Galatasaray enjoyed a massive win on Tuesday night, defeating Maccabi by 39 points, so they will have some confidence heading into this game. Sinan Guler continues to play a captains role for his side, offering an average of 11.5 points per game and 5.7 assists per game. Vladimir Micov has also been of benefit to Galatasaray, providing an average of 10.6 points per game, while Alex Tyus has chipped in with an average of 10.4 points per game.
It is sometimes difficult to predict a derby day clash but take Fenerbahce Istanbul at -11, at odds of 1.90. You can take the Over/Under market at OVER 160.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
