Pinar Karsiyaka - Galatasaray Medical Park

Pinar Karsiyaka Galatasaray Medical Park pick
Turkish league's undefeated leader Galatasaray Medical Park is going to face Pinar Karsiyaka in away on saturday afternoon. Pinar Karsiyaka which has been tough at home so far will try to remind it to the visiting side again.

Both teams participate in european competitions and they successfully qualified to the next round. Home side Pinar Karsiyaka is regular participant of Fiba Eurochallenge cup. They qualified to the top 16 in spite of they lost against Krka Novo Mesto 3 days ago. Galatasaray, similarly, achieved qualification comfortably in Eurocup after defeating Lokomotiv Moscow and BC Donetsk in the group stage. They are the only undefeated team in the league and against Pinar Karsiyaka, they'll play their toughest game of this season so far.

Visiting Galatasaray Medical Park recently suffered an important injury when Henry Domercant had torn ligaments. He has undergone a surgery and already out of season for his team. They are reported to look for a replacement for him;however, no progress has been reported yet. The have another injured player; Goksenin Koksal has been injured for more than a month. He is a good back court defender and he is still unable to play. Power forward Furkan Aldemir  had his lips stiched. Although Galatasaray coach Ergin Ataman mentions of him as a game time decision, I personally expect him to play. If he doesn't play, home side Pinar Karsiyaka gains serious advantage in the paint.

In an unfortunate event, Pinar Karsiyaka guards John Dibbler and Soner Senturk collided each other in a traning prior to Krka Novo Mesto game. Both players weren't risked on last tuesday and they will be available to play tomorrow afternoon. Home side managed to defeat Besiktas and Fenerbahce Ulker in this arena, whereas they lost against Banvit by the last possession 2 weeks ago. Those victories against such elite teams motivate the home side remarkably on the eve of this match up. Galatasaray, despite their continuing streak, seems to have little bit downward performance. Especially in the defensive point of view, they currently are not as dominant as they were at the beginning of the season. Their last performances against Besiktas and Trefl Sopot enables me to authenticate this situation. Confronting Pinar Karsiyaka on the road isn't going to be any easier than facing Besiktas at home last weekend.

Home side victory is of decent possibiliy. Those who want to be at the safe side, should take advantage of reasonable spread.

Pick : Pinar Karsiyaka +5.5 @ 1.83

Good luck and happy betting!
