Akhisarspor vs Konyaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Monday, 24th December 2018
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Stadium (Akhisar).
The relegation bound Akhisarspor eye three points when they welcome a rattled Konyaspor for Monday’s Turkish Lig fixture.
Akhisarspor are sitting with a 1 point cushion over the relegation waters and they well sink into the zone if they fail to bag points here.
Their last league fixture was an away defeat at Kayserispor. But this remain to be their only defeat in 6 games. The home form look solid as well with 2 wins and a draw from the recent three.
Konyaspor are 8th in the standings and are on a decent run of form as well. They bagged 3 wins and 2 draws from the last 6 in all competitions.
However, the team do tend to underperform in away games and are searching for the first away win since September.
Akhisarspor vs Konyaspor Head-to-head
There is little to separate from the recent h2h as Akhisar won 3 and Konyaspor 2 from their last 5 league meetings.
Only the winning team found the back of the net in those games.
Yet, Akhisar come on the back of consecutive home wins against Konyaspor and lost just 1 of the 6 h2h fixtures here since 2011.
Akhisarspor vs Konyaspor Prediction
The overall form of both teams are on level par since Akhisar lost just 1 of their last 6 games in all competitions, while the same stat is held by the visiting side.
However, Konya have been poor in road games off late, their last league win in that respect dating back to September 2018.
Since Akhisar are coming on the back of a three match unbeaten run at home with clean sheet bagged in each, we may back the hosts to pick at least a point from this fixture. I have little doubt that the double chance paid at 1.44 is a solid bet.
We have seen only one team getting on the back of the net in their recent h2h fixtures. Adding this to the new found defensive form of Akhisar, I believe the visitors who scored just 1 goals in their last 4 outings are going to have a tough time here.
This gives us some confidence to back a home win and under 2.5 goals.
Akhisarspor vs Konyaspor Bet Tips
