Akhisarspor vs Trabzonspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 7 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Belediye Stadi (Akhisar).
Akhisarspor are going to face Trabzonspor in the eighth round of the Turkish Super Lig on Sunday afternoon.
After a very successful last season when they managed to finish in the middle of the table and surprisingly win the Turkish Cup, the hosts are facing problems in the current one. They managed to book their first victory two rounds ago, but that one came against the defending champions Galatasaray.
Cem Kavcak’s side has an unsuccessful campaign in the Europa League as well as they’ve suffered two defeats in the first rounds of the competition.
Although they haven’t been bad in front of the oppositions’ goal, Akhisarspor need to improve their defensive work.
The visitors had a good start of the campaign, but their recent variable form pushed them down to the middle of the table. In the last three matches they managed to celebrate only once and although Hugo Rodallega and the lads have been productive in the final third, their poor defending costed them too many points.
However, Trabzonspor are not too far from the top of the table as the continental qualification spots are just three points away from them.
Akhisarspor vs Trabzonspor: Head-to-head
Both sides have been successful in their latest head to head clashes and they managed to book two wins each in the last five occasions.
Their last three clashes have been a joy to watch in terms of total goals scored.
Akhisarspor vs Trabzonspor: Prediction
The hosts are in a poor form and it seems they are going to struggle this season. Although Trabzonspor are not too impressive as well, they should be able to get back home with all three points from Akhisar which should push them back to the top half of the table.
These two teams have been involved in high scoring matches lately and it is natural to expect another efficient match. Since their head to head clashes have also been productive, this one should go over 2.5 margin.
