Akhisarspor vs Kayserispor
Date: Tuesday, 22nd January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Stadium (Akhisar).
Belediye comes into this game with full confidence, courtesy their win and two away goals in the first leg. The game was almost gifted to them by the careless play of the Anatolian Star. After conceding in the 15th minute itself, Atila Turan compounded the hardships of the hosts with an own goal in the 37th minute.
Things seemed like would be going all the way for Cihat Arslan’s men, when a penalty in the 78th minute gave new life to the team from Kayseri. Tjarron Chery calmly converted the spot-kick and gave his team another 12 minutes to get back into level terms.
But the visitors were up to the task, and desperately held on to the scoreline. They will try to finish things off in the reverse fixture.

Akhisarspor vs Kayserispor Prediction
The away goals will certainly tip the scales in the direction of Cihat Arslan’s men. They will try to wait it out and take advantage of Anadolu Yidizi’s desperation. Even with a 0-1 loss, the hosts will be progressing to the next stage, and with teams of similar caliber involved, it’s an uphill task for Spor Kulibu to overcome. Also keep in mind that, the team is weighed down by their away status, after losing their home tie.
Expect the visitors to take risks and attack from the beginning. They will try and look for improbable angles and shots. Akigo will easily deal with it and look for counters, which will be fruitful in one way or another.
I expect the hosts to go through with a 1-0 scoreline.
