Yeni Malatyaspor head into the weekend in the relegation zone, and they will aim to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat when they face Galatasaray on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the visitors will be looking to return to winning ways in the league after collecting just a point from their last two Turkish Super Lig games.

Match preview

Yeni Malatyaspor enter the matchday in 17th position, and if they are to avoid relegation then an improvement is needed.

Confidence will be low in the home side's dressing room after suffering three consecutive defeats, including a narrow 1-0 loss last weekend away to Giresunspor

The encounter was goalless for 70 minutes but the hosts were awarded a penalty, with Fousseni Diabete dispatching the spot kick to claim all three points, ensuring that the home side leapfrogged Yeni Malatyaspor in the league table.

Although they return to home comforts on Sunday, their recent home form suggests anything but a comfortable afternoon for Yeni Malatyaspor after suffering four defeats in their last five games at the New Malatyaspor Stadium.

If Marius Sumudica's side are to move away from danger then they need to improve defensively after conceding 23 goals this season - only Rizespor have conceded more in the top flight.

Galatasaray head into the weekend in eighth place, and they will be looking to close the gap on the top four with a victory on Sunday.

Last weekend, Galatasaray lost out to bitter rivals Fenerbahce, despite taking the lead in the 16th minute through Kerem Akturkoglu, however Mesut Ozil equalised in the 31st minute before Fenerbahce snatched all three points in stoppage time courtesy of Miguel Crespo's winner.

Fatih Terim's side impressively bounced back in midweek with a 4-2 victory at home to Marseille in the Europa League, which ensured their progress to the knockout stages.

In that encounter, goals from Alexandru Cicaldau, Sofiane Feghouli, Ryan Babel and an own goal from Duje Caleta-Car helped Galatasary to an important victory over the French side.

Although confidence will be high after their victory in Europe, Galatasaray have struggled away from home in the Turkish Super Lig, winning only once in their last six away league games.

Team News

Yeni Malatyaspor are without Benjamin Tetteh, who is absent with a thigh injury.

With top scorer Tetteh unavailable, the hosts will be relying on Adem Buyuk, who will be looking to add to the three goals that he has scored this season.

Meanwhile, Didier N'dong missed last weekend's encounter through suspension, but the midfielder is set to return to the starting lineup on Sunday.

Galatasaray are missing Sacha Boey and Arda Turan, who are both unavailable due to injury.

Omar Elabdellaoui has been missing for an extended period of time, and the defender is unlikely to return for Sunday's encounter.

Terim could make a change in midfield with Olimpiu Morutan set to replace Taylan Antalyali.

Yeni Malatyaspor possible starting lineup:
Ozbir; Ciftpinar, Haddadi, Kaya; Eskihellac, Aabid, N'dong, Chouiar, Hafez; Kanatsizkus, Buyuk

Galatasaray possible starting lineup:
Muslera; Yedlin, Marcao, Nelsson, Van Aanholt; Morutan, Cicaldau, Kutlu; Feghouli, Akturkoglu, Dervisoglu

We say: Yeni Malatyaspor 1-2 Galatasaray

Galatasaray have won four of their last five league meetings with Yeni Malatyaspor, and given the home side's recent struggles, we think the visitors will collect all three points on Sunday.
