Akhisarspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 3rd February 2019
Kick-off at 13.00 UK/ 14.00 CET
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Stadium (Akhisar).
These two teams are similar. Similar in the sense, both of them decorate the two ends of the league table. Similar in quality? Not a chance in the world.
Medipol has carved themselves a nice, safe spot at the top, with a cushion of five points, even with Galatasaray in hot pursuit. The one thing that stands out for the team is their defense. While no other team in the league managed to keep the number of conceded goals below the limit of 20, they went even further and kept it at 10.
Akigo must be at their wits’ end brainstorming how to get out of the mess they have created for themselves. The season is running past them in the blink of an eye, and they really need some solutions. The team really needs to let go of their habit of winning one league game per month. But it may be better for their self-esteem to start working on it after this loss. I mean, after this game.

Akhisarspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir Prediction
The hosts for this game were winless in 25 of their last 31 matches, and 18 of last 24 home-ties. Meanwhile, their counterparts were unbeaten in 21 of their last 23 games, and nine of their last ten away fixtures. They have also registered wins in their last four straight h2h ties, and eight of the last nine wins in face-to-face meetings. The current league-toppers will easily add another three points to their total.
The game will not be that challenging for the visitors, considering the difference in quality, and they will try to wrap up the game early and try to give some rest for their key-players, considering other important fixtures on the horizon. Devoid of worries, place a bet on having at least a goal before the half time.
