Akhisar vs Kasimpasa
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 16 March 2019
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Belediye Stadi (Akhisar).
Akhisarspor caught a glimmer of hope in the battle for saving the elite tier status two weeks ago when they dispatched Alanyaspor 3-1 in front of the home crowd. They failed to back up such result last weekend against 4th-placed Trabzonspor, but still showed a decent strong resistance against an outfit from a completely opposite end of the Super Lig ladder.
The hosts still have a mountain to climb to avoid relegation being as many as seven points behind the safe zone line. They thus don’t make room for mistakes and are practically in a must-win situation here against out-of-form Kasimpasa side at Spor Toto Akhisar Belediye Stadi.
Akhisar vs Kasimpasa: Head-to-head
These two likes played each other three times this season.
Kasimpasa picked up a demolishing 5-0 victory in the league clash back in October last year.
Akhisar got revenge via two wins in the Turkish Cup quarter-final in February this year (3-1 and 1-2).
Three or more goals were scored in four of past five head to head outings.
Akhisar vs Kasimpasa: Prediction
Whilst Akhisar grew in form under the new manager Ercan Kahyaoglu, Kasimpasa have not been pulling up any trees of late. They got off to a nightmare start to the year and are team with the weakest record in 2019. Apaches lost six and drew two of eight league games after the winter break. They shipped two or more goals in eight consecutive games across competitions before playing a goalless draw with relegation threatened Goztepe six days ago.
Kasimpasa generally played weaker on travels where they won only 3, drew 3 and lost 6 of 12 Super Lig games so far in the season. Akhisar won two and drew one of past three home ties in all competitions. This is one of last trains to catch for Ercan Kahyaoglu and his men and we expect them to see off out-of-form Apaches on Saturday afternoon.
