Round 23 of the Turkish Super Lig comes to an end at the Nef Stadyumu where Galatasaray play host to league leaders Trabzonspor on Sunday.

The hosts will be looking to snap their four-game losing streak, while the visitors head into the game unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions.

Galatasaray failed to find their feet on Thursday as they fell to a disappointing 3-1 defeat against Kasimpasa.

They have now lost each of their last four games in all competitions, including a shock defeat against lower-tier Denizlispor which saw their Turkish Cup run come to an end.

Galatasaray are currently languishing in the bottom half of the table, picking up 27 points from 22 games to sit in 13th place.

Meanwhile, Trabzonspor failed to return to winning ways last time out when they came from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw against Giresunspor.

Abdullah Avci’s men are now unbeaten in each of their last seven games across all competitions, claiming four wins and three draws in that time.

With 51 points from 22 games, Trabzonspor currently sit at the summit of the table, nine points above second-placed Konyaspor.
