Alanyaspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir Prediction
Istanbul is without a doubt, the best team in the league. They have lost the fewest number of matches in the entire league, and it is no secret that they dole out wins with help of the best backline in the country.
No team has posted better defensive stats than Basaksehir. Their dominance is so apparent that the second-best defensive side in the league has conceded more than twice the number of goals than Istanbul.
Basaksehir will once more call upon their defensive strength to see out the match and to get three easy points. Istanbul is the team that has taken part in the fewest number of matches with under 2.5 match goals. It’s logical to deduce that Basaksehir will keep a clean sheet.
Even at home, Alanyaspor is no match for their mighty opponents. Alanyaspor is hanging by a thread over the relegation line, and by the time the match is over, they will find themselves in the undesired zone.
In the last ten matches, Istanbul has easily posted the best record out of the 18 teams, while Alanyaspor would have been the worst of the lot, but for Fenerbahce, with an inferior goal difference. Istanbul will win this match without much sweating.
