Konyaspor v Fenerbahçe
Konyaspor were eliminated from the European competition at the beginning of the season. Now, they will only focus on league games and aim to be in the top positions again. It is important to know that they were the team that collected the most points in the league’s home matches last season. They only lost twice at home. This season, Konya Stadium’s ground is under maintenance, so they are playing their matches in the neighbouring city of Eskişehir. However, the atmosphere will look like Konya Stadium, because this is a very important match for them.
Fenerbahce were at the top of the league at the start of the week. Also on Thursday, they won against Austria Wien to qualify for the Europa League. They have scored an average of 2.66 goals per game in the 9 games they have played so far, and they are by far the best team in the league in this respect. On the other hand, they could not score a goal away from Dynamo Kyiv and they could only draw with one goal away from Slovacko. They humiliated Kasımpaşa who, in truth, were so vulnerable, but that match was not a difficult test. Therefore, Fenerbahce’s away performance against opponents who can defend well isn’t particularly amazing.
Konyaspor have not conceded a single goal in the league yet this season. A strong team with good players. With this, Fenerbahçe have been playing three games a week for a long time and some players are tired. Coach Jorge Jesus can make widely rotations as he said. In my opinion, Konyaspor will want to reduce the match tempo to the own pace and will do what they want.
Besiktas v Sivasspor
Besiktas had a very good performance last week. They scored 4 goals while beating Karagumruk, they could have scored as many goals. They got a great result by pressing high up the pitch, changing the direction of the game fast and playing very enthusiastically. Thus, they became the second team to score the most goals in the league, and the quality of their gameplay is gradually increasing. The team’s enthusiastic play is imposing, especially in front of the full stands at home.
Englishman Dele Alli joined Beşiktaş, but he can only play in the last part of the match as he has only trained once with the team. In addition, Rachid Ghezzal, the team’s most important weapon in attack, returned from injury. Although he is not expected to start in the starting 11, he will be in the squad.
Sivasspor have not yet overcome their bad start to the league. They failed to qualify for the Europa League, losing once again to Malmö on Thursday. The decline in squad quality and injuries have taken a toll on them, and there is also a finishing problem up front. They only managed to score 2 goals in the league, but their xG was 3.2. In offense, they fell short of their own quality. But a match against such an opponent can be a very good opportunity to make things right. Beşiktaş may allow this may not, but the match seems difficult for Sivasspor. Nevertheless, they will definitely not surrender.
