Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu has stated that his side do not even have the luxury of dropping a single point for the remainder of the season.
The Lions are currently second on goal difference to leaders Beşiktaş but only one point separates them from third placed Fenerbahçe.
“We cannot even drop a single point anymore, we have to fight tooth and nail for every point, every point dropped could be the difference between winning and losing the league,” Hamzaoğlu was quoted as saying by Eurosport TR.
Galatasaray beat Gaziantepspor 1-0 on the weekend, relying on an 85th minute goal from Hakan Balta to gain all three points.
The Lions still have an Istanbul derby to play against Beşiktaş in the penultimate week.
Galatasaray take on 11th placed Akhisar next at the 19 Mayıs stadium in Manisa.
Akhisar are coached by former Fenerbahçe fullback Roberto Carlos and have only lost one of their last six home games.
Galatasaray have struggled on the road recently, having lost two out of their last three away games.
