Ankaragucu vs Umraniyespor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: 27 December 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Eryaman Stadyumu (Ankara).

Bottom-half rivals Ankaragucu and Umraniyespor will come across each other in a very important 16th round clash in Super Lig on Tuesday afternoon at Eryaman Stadyumu.

Both teams went on the World Cup break from the relegation zone. Ankaragucu are in a much better position, though, being level on points with 15th-placed Fatih Karagumruk.

The hosts are six points above the rock-bottomed Umraniyespor who are still trying to adjust to the top flight life.

Umraniye did manage to snatch their maiden win of the 2022/23 campaign in early-November, beating Alanyaspor 3-1 on the home patch.

That victory gave them wings and initiated a run of five successive games without a defeat in all competitions, including a friendly game against Albanian side Partizani Tirana (a 2-2 draw).

Head coach Recep Ucar can be thrilled with the attacking form his men have shown in the recent matches.

They have now bagged at least two goals in each of the last five games, a run that includes a 1-2 victory last week away at Kasimpasa in the fifth round of Turkish Cup.

Ankaragucu, on the other side, play tight defensive-minded football and it will be very interesting to see whose style will prevail on Tuesday.

Ankaragucu suffered two straight defeats in the friendlies against Sivasspor (0-2) and Konyaspor (0-1) but they bounced back by beating lower-division Tuzlaspor 2-0 seven days ago in the cup.

Ankaragucu vs Umraniyespor Head-to-head

  • These two teams met battled it out last season in the second tier of Turkish football.
  • Ankaragucu were the more successful side, claiming four points from the two clashes, including a 3-0 victory on the home patch.
  • Both teams were on target in three of the previous four head to head games between these rivals.

Ankaragucu vs Umraniyespor Prediction

Umraniyespor have been quite efficient in the final third in the recent outings but we don’t expect them to have much space to deliver here in what should be a close encounter against Ankaragucu.

With plenty at stake for both teams down in the relegation scrap, we are going to back the hosts to win in a low-scoring game. Ankaragucu to win & Under 2.5 goals FT bet is paid at the 3.75 odds.
