Trabzonspor vs Fenerbahce
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday 26th December, 2016
Kick-off: 17:00 UK
Venue: Huseyin Avni Aker Stadyumu, Trabzon.
Fenerbahce are feeling the consequence of playing in two fronts which is why they have disappointed their fans in the first part of the new Super Lig season. The Navy Blue-Yellows have had an impressive Europa League campaign qualifying to the knockout stage of the competition from a very tough group featuring Manchester United and Feyenoord, but the domestic campaign suffered since they are currently holding the 4th position being on a seven-point distance to Istanbul Basaksehir at the top.
Fener managed to bounce back after a disappointing 1 – 0 defeat at Antalyaspor two weeks ago with a strong display against in-form Gencerlibirligi last Monday when Moussa Sow bagged a brace while Fernandao added another in a 3 – 0 win at Sukru Saracoglu.
Trabzon have had a lot of troubles with scoring since the start of the season which is the main reason why the team led by Ersun Yanal is far away from the very top of the standings in the top flight of Turkish football. The hosts managed to claim consecutive wins over Kayserispor and Adanaspor, being especially dominant in a 4 – 1 win over Adana two weeks ago, but the positive streak saw an end against the current leaders Istanbul Basaksehir last weekend.
Trabzonspor vs Fenerbahce: Head-to-Head Stats
Fenerbahce have been more than dominant in the most recent head to head encounters as Trabzon failed to find the net against Fener in nine consecutive games! The visitors are 11/5 to win to nil which represents a super high value if we are to judge by the head to head encounters. The last match played between the two teams saw a convincing 0 – 4 win for Advocaat’s men in April this year.
Trabzonspor vs Fenerbahce: Prediction
The number one betting pick will be Fenerbahce to win at decent 10/11 odds, while the braver punters can surely go with the special option backing the visitors to win to nil at 11/5! Alternatively, the BTTS – NO option, set at the same 10/11 odds looks great as well!
