The defending champion has made a confident start to the new campaign, winning four of its first five matches this season.
With 13 points in five weeks, Galatasaray already has a comfortable lead over its rivals.
Kasımpaşa, Fenerbahçe and Orduspor all have nine points to trail the Lions, while Beşiktaş, Istanbul BB, Trabzonspor and Sivasspor all have eight. Orduspor also is looking to extend its good form early in the season. Orduspor midfielder Yiğit Gökoğlan, who is on loan from Galatasaray, said his current team may spring an upset.
“Galatasaray is a club of first-class players but we can win if we can play as a unit,” he said. “Of course playing against Galatasaray is tough for me, personally, but as a professional, I will play my best as an Orduspor player.” Galatasaray’s next game will be an important Champions League meeting against Braga on Oct. 2.
Tonight’s game in Ordu starts at 8 p.m.
