Alanyaspor vs Fenerbahce
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Friday, 10th March 2017
Kick-off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Alanya Oba Stadium.
Alanyaspor will be looking to continues their good form home when they welcome Fenerbahce for the Turkish Super Lig fixture on Friday evening. They had won back to back games at home scoring 7 goals against 1. The two wins turned out to be vital in keeping them out of the relegation zone, but there is only a 5 point gap cushion at the moment. Alanya lost 2-1 away at Istanbul Basaksehir last week, their first loss in three league games.
Fenerbahce put an end to their four match win-less run by edging past Osmanlispor by a narrow 1-0 margin at home. Three of their previous matches were draws, while a defeat came away at Kayserispor. Fener are fourth in the league and a win here will see them move up to third replacing Galatasaray momentarily.
Alanyaspor vs Fenerbahce: Head-to-head stats
Alanyaspor managed to held Fenerbahce to a 1-1 draw when the teams met in their first ever Turkish Super Lig fixture on October 2016.
The only other competitive meeting between these two happened in the 2008 Turkish Cup, which saw Fener winning by a massive 10-3 margin.
Alanyaspor vs Fenerbahce: Prediction
Fenerbahce seem to have got their confidence after back-to-back wins with clean sheets. Their 3-0 win at Kayserispor in the Cup competition is followed by a 1-0 league win against Osmanlispor. However, they are seeking for their first league win away from home in 2017 after having lost 1 and drawn 2.
Meanwhile, Alanyaspor looked brilliant in their last two home matches and will be coming in good spirits. Both teams are in search for points here, Fener wants to keep pressure on the top 3 teams and Alanya wants to distant themselves from the relegation.
Therefore, expect both teams chasing a win here and we could witness an open contest. So, both teams to score is a perfect pick for this game.
