Antalyaspor v Karagumruk
Antalyaspor could not win 6 games in a row and there was a crisis in the club but surprisingly, they won the last 2 games they played. After beating Istanbulspor in the Turkish Super Lig with a last-minute goal, they managed to win 0-2 in the tough Sivasspor away game.
For the first time this season, they implemented three men defence as the main plan worked well, coach Nuri Şahin was relieved thanks to this victory against an opponent in a good form. Despite the injuries of right winger Alassane Ndao and midfielder Fredy, Antalyaspor seems to have found a good squad composition.
Karagumruk had a critical misfortune in the match he played last week. At the end of the first half hour of the match, they had to continue with 10 men. Adnan Ugur, who played in the starting 11 for the first time this season, was sent off from the game with a direct red card.
They could not resist the strong opponent Galatasaray and lost the match 0-2. However, in the previous three games, they had scored a total of 10 goals and won 2 of them. When a game is played 11 vs 11, their resistance and offensive activities give them a lot of hope, they will definitely cause problems for Antalyaspor.
Experienced Italian striker Fabio Borini is suspended in Karagumruk. Mbaye Diagne will be the team’s main offensive force, as he has scored 6 goals this season. In Antalyaspor, Haji Wright has 8 goals and as the star of the team, he will be the team’s biggest goal weapon in this match. While this is the case, I predict that both teams will score in this match.
Trabzonspor v Konyaspor
The defending champion Trabzonspor was eliminated from the Europa League last Thursday and will compete in the Conference League for the rest of the season. They missed the Champions League opportunity at the beginning of the season, and not being able to continue in the Europa League was a new disappointment. Their performance in the league is also not stable, but it is generally accepted that they collect a high amount of points compared to their quality of play.
Trabzonspor didn’t play a match last weekend, they were in bye-week. Before that, they managed to beat Sivasspor 1-0, especially in the second half which they played defensively. Their last Ferencvaros match was similar; a good first half but Trabzonspor’s pace of gameplay decreased in the second half.
Konyaspor has not been able to win 4 matches in the league. Despite their very good form before, they could not maintain their good position in the league. Endri Cekici, the team’s one of the most important offensive weapons, was injured again, but it should be remembered that they are the only team to beat Fenerbahce, which is at the top of the league this season.
They didn’t win the game with a very simple mistake against Kasimpasa last week, but the quality of play was definitely much better. In order to start a new good form series, coach Ilhan Palut targeted the Trabzonspor match. Konyaspor is definitely a superb defensive team and they have conceded more than 1 goal in only 1 game this season.
While Trabzonspor’s gameplay was at a slow pace, the players were worn out by playing matches on weekdays and weekends, and Abdullah Avci is a coach who has limited rotation. Left-back Eren Elmali and offensive midfielder Yusuf Yazici are suspended and also right-winger Edin Visca is still injured. However, it is very difficult for them to prevail over Konyaspor, which is in better condition physically and mentally, they will not lose this match.
Fenerbache v Sivasspor
The magnificent season continues for Fenerbahce. After capturing the top of the Turkish Super Lig, they qualified for the next round as the leader of the UEFA Europa League group. Despite the injuries and playing matches on weekdays and weekends constantly, they keep on winning. Young superstar candidate Arda Guler played great in the last Dynamo Kyiv match and they won again. However, it is very difficult to say anything negative about them.
Sivasspor also managed to finish the UEFA Conference League on top. They did not lose the away match against Slavia Praha and qualified for the next round on Thursday. Even though they were close to the relegation zone in the Super Lig, their October performance was pretty well and the number of injured players in the team has decreased.
The last time they came to Istanbul, they beat Basaksehir away, and then they played a good game again despite losing in Trabzon. Many players were rested during the weekday game, and Ugur Ciftci, who could not play last week due to his suspension, is returning to the team. It’s hard to say negative things about them right now too. To be honest, they are not better than Fenerbahce, but they have the power to cause trouble to the opponent.
Fenerbahce scored 57 goals in 23 official matches and coach Jorge Jesus’ team scored 2.47 goals per game. They are the league’s top scorer by far. It would not be difficult for them to score a goal against their vulnerable opponents in this match as well, but Sivasspor has a very experienced coach and a player group that won against Fenerbahce at the most critical moment and prevented their opponent from winning the championship two years ago. Fenerbahce will need more than one goal to win.
