Sparta Prague vs Galatasaray: Match Preview and Prediction

Sparta Prague vs Galatasaray:  Sparta Prague has won eleven straight games in all competitions when they scored two goals or more. With the exception of the last four games across all competitions, Galatasaray scored three goals or more every time out. Mauro Icardi has scored in his past two Galatasaray games.

Galatasaray had a little lead going into the second leg of the UEFA Europa League knockout phase playoffs in Prague, thanks to a goal by Mauro Icardi in stoppage time. Seven days ago, we saw a thrilling five-goal thriller unfold in Istanbul. With seven yellow cards issued during the match, both teams had ten players remaining on the field at the end.

It is worth noting that two key players for Sparta Prague, Ladislav Krejci and Veljko Birmancevic, are both suspended following their yellow cards from seven days ago in Istanbul. These omissions will impact the entire left flank of Sparta’s attack.

Both sides will come into the game in strong form after winning domestically the previous weekend. Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Slovan Liberec gave Sparta Prague a three-point lead atop the Czech Liga standings. Galatasaray defeated Ankaragucu 3-0 on the road to maintain a two-point lead over Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Liga.

Sparta Prague vs Galatasaray: Betting Analysis

This will be Sparta Prague’s second match against Galatasaray. The opening leg was a five-goal thriller with lots of chances on both ends. Seven days ago in Istanbul, Mauro Icardi scored a stoppage-time winner for Galatasaray.

This season, Sparta Prague has won 18, drawn 2, and lost 1 in 21 Czech Liga matches. All competitions have seen 16 straight home wins. Prague residents will cheer them on Thursday. This season, Brian Priske’s club won two and drew three home Europa League group stage matches. Galatasaray has won the last eleven competitions. Three of their last four games have seen three or more goals. We recommend betting on both teams to score. Take 1.57 odds.

Thursday should be another open game with plenty of space for both sides’ attackers. In these circumstances, we prefer 2.50 odds for Mauro Icardi to score anytime for the visitors. The Argentine forward scored in both of his last two games. He had two assists and a goal in the first leg against Sparta Prague seven days ago.
