IT'S back to Istanbul for a match that could end in Galatasaray celebrating retaining their crown. They host Sivasspor at the Turk Telekom Arena and a win would give them an unassailable lead.
After winning the league by nine points last year it looks like Gala are going to do it again, with three games to go and a seven-point advantage it would take a complete capitulation to throw it away from here.
Gala have been solid all season and the big-name captures of Sneijder and Drogba seemed to give them the boost they needed in January. They have only lost one game in the league since their arrival and are on a six-game winning streak. Their great city rivals Fenerbahce have also been impressive this year but couldn't quite maintain enough consistency and will most likely finish runners-up again.
After 32 goals last year Burak Yilmaz's goalscoring form has dropped off a little but he will still finish Gol Krali and despite the additions of Bulut and Drogba he remains the main man. In midfield Inan and Melo have proved too powerful for most teams and it is there most games have been won for Gala.
Attempting to block their path to glory are mid-table Sivasspor, a team with the second worst away record in the league and little to play for. At first glance the task for Gala appears pretty straightforward but Sivasspor tend to raise their game for their hardest opponents. They have already claimed the scalps of both Fenerbahce and Besiktas in Istanbul this season.
After finishing seventh last year Sivasspor would have wanted to have developed further by this point but their awful away record has hampered them. Their attention has been on the cup recently and they contest a semi -inal with Trabzonspor next Wednesday.
Nigerian striker Michael Eneramo, who bagged a hat-trick last week, is their main threat and will try and ruin the party on Sunday. With Gala looking for their 45th title and Sivasspor keeping one eye on the cup semi it looks all set for a noisy end to Sunday and Istanbul will be awash with yellow and red.
