Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals

Both our prediction and odds from the bookmakers suggest that this Europa League showdown is going to be entertaining, with at least 3 goals to scored in the fixture. As neither side is a nailed-on winner given their latest form, we're going with the stats and past head-to-head (H2H) records below, both of which point strongly towards on over 2.5 goals top tip.

The bookies are indicating that goals may be in plentiful supply in this tie, as odds are getting shorter on over 2.5 goals and drifting on under 2.5. Spectating fans could well be in for a thrilling 90 minutes, and punters predicting an over could be going home happy too.

Goal Statistics

Galatasaray's forwards have been in fine form of late, scoring 2 goals or more in 6 consecutive Europa League outings. A PG of 2.2 suggests that run should continue on Thursday evening.

Galatasaray's defensive record is to be admired, O. Buruk's men having conceded 1 or less in 13 consecutive Europa League games. An underwhelming PG rating of 1.0 for Sparta Prague makes sense in this context.
