Ankaragucu vs Goztepe Prediction
These two sides are fierce rivals and currently are in stiff competition with each other in the mid-table. Most of the matches between these sides have had both sides on the score sheet. The stat holds true for every tie contested in this decade, be it at either team’s home ground.
The peculiar thing is most goals come late into the match. The second halves are usually filled with goals whereas in most cases first halves are uneventful.
Leaving h2h games aside, the stat can be seen in normal matches too, especially this season. No other team than these two, have been outscored in the second halves, in the entire league. Both these teams have lost more than half of their league matches in the second halves.
We will most likely see a comparatively quiet first half and a more happening latter half. Both teams won’t get on the score sheet together in the first half, but they will achieve it in the next 45 minutes. We will also see at least two second-half goals.
