Ankaragucu vs Alanyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Ankara 19 Mayis Stadyumu (Ankara).
It will be a dog-eat-dog world this Monday at Ankara. Both teams have no option but to survive this game somehow. The loser of this tie would get the boot to the relegation zone in all probability.
Misfortune, that’s the single-most apt word to describe the last several match-days of these teams. Their proud history notwithstanding, the teams have suffered in almost all of their league ties. Mustafa Kaplan’s men used to deal with their shortcomings with satisfactory performances at home, but even that has become a luxury now.
Speaking about the team from Alanya, it has not been a pleasure following them these days. Their last win on the road came in September, and since then it was nothing but torture.

Ankaragucu vs Alanyaspor Prediction
Fans of both teams are advised to have some nails to bite before they settle in to watch the game. It’s not going to be pretty. The defense will be given utmost importance and the first priority will be given to avoid a loss.
An early goal would be nothing short of suicide since the team that scored the goal would practically park the bus for the rest of the game. Also, the stats point to a game which would be low goal-scoring in nature.
Mustafa Kaplan’s men failed to score in four of their last five home-ties, and their counterparts did the same in seven of their last 11 games on the road.
Additionally, the hosts have scored the second-least number of goals in the Primeira Liga, while their opponents have gone further, and scored the least number of goals in the competition, and in away ties, they have done so by a distance. All the team could manage till now, was just a paltry three goals.
A goalless first half is in order.
