St Johnstone Preview – Can St Johnstone find a way to win?

St Johnstone bring a stubborn looking run of nine games without defeat into this 2nd leg against Galatasaray at their McDiarmid Park with the scores still level following last week’s 1-1 draw in the 1st leg in Turkey.

However, St Johnstone have been involved in a number of draws of late as seven of their last nine games have ended in stalemate and the hosts may not find it easy going in this return leg either despite holding home advantage.

The Scottish club have registered just four wins from their previous 15 Europa League ties and have lost six of these ties, so St Johnstone’s inconsistent streak at this level could prove to be their undoing.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Galatasaray Preview – Can Galatasaray progress?

Although they were dealt a heavy 7-2 defeat on aggregate against PSV in the early stages of the Champions League, the Turkish club have another chance at European involvement in the Europa League and with the scores still level at 1-1, the visitors still stand a decent chance of progressing into the play-offs of this competition.

Prior to the home and away losses to PSV, Galatasaray had put together an impressive eight-match winning streak which was part of an unbeaten run of 11 matches in all competitions, so they’ll be hoping they can rekindle some of that earlier form on Thursday night.

Results away from home have been pretty ordinary for Galatasaray whose last meeting on the road against Scottish opposition in the Europa League ended in a 2-1 loss at Rangers, but the Turks should just have enough to get over the line against St Johnstone.
