Adanaspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday 24th December, 2016
Kick-off: 13:00 UK
Venue: Ocak Fatih Terim Stadyumu, Adana.
Who could have thought that Istanbul Basaksehir would be holding the very top of the table after 15 rounds of the competition in Super Lig besides all the Turkish giants?
Abdullah Avci has been doing a tremendous job on the bench so far in the season since his team is looking phenomenal. Marcio Mossoro and Edin Visca are two of their best players up front, while the defense with Ayhan, Epureanu, Albayrak and Ucar looks super solid. Istanbul are undefeated in the last 12 matches winning the last three in a row against Sivasspor, Trabzonspor and Goztepe.
Adanaspor, on the other side, are among the weakest teams in the competition and generally they do not have much to hope for against the leaders, but Eyup Arin and his men will enter the game in a much better mood following their second win of the campaign against Kayserispor in the last round. Adana have previously lost nine out of ten matches.
Adanaspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir: Head-to-Head Stats
Interestingly, the teams have three wins each ahead of their 8th head to head encounter, the first one since 2013/14 season. The situation has changed dramatically since the previous H2H clashes between Adana and Istanbul Basaksehir as the hosts will be struggling to save the elite class status, while the visitors are living the dream holding the very top of the table.
