Galatasaray forward Henry Onyekuru believes that playing at home against Besiktas in Sunday’s Istanbul derby in the Turkish Super Lig will be a huge advantage for his side, reports Completesports.com.
The defending champions of the Turkish league, Galatasaray have won just one of the 15 derbies played recently, but Onyekuru is banking on the club’s fans’ support to record a decisive win in their title race.
With four weeks to go in Turkish football’s top flight, Basaksehir sits atop the league table with 62 points, while Galatasaray are second with 60 points, and Besiktas are in the third spot with 59 points.
Galatasaray who will play Basaksehir at home in Week 33, will successfully defend their title if they win all remaining games, regardless of the opponents’ results.
“With the support of our fans, we want to give 100 percent and win the game,” Onyekuru, who is on a loan deal from Everton told a Turkish daily, Hurriyet News, ahead of the derby.
“We have four games ahead that we should win. My biggest aim is to win the title.
On his future at Galatasaray, Onyekuru said: “We will all see what is next after that.”
Onyekuru has scored 14 goals for Galatasaray and provided four assists so far this season.
