Antalyaspor vs Akhisarspor
Turkey- Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 11 November 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Antalya Arena (Antalya).
Third place Antalyaspor will host relegation placed Akhisar this Sunday to their home ground.
The home side has started this season brilliantly. With 6 wins in their 11 matches, they are 3rd in the table in contention for the Europa League qualification. But their main problem this season has been conceding goals. Till now they have scored a decent 15 goals but gave away 16 goals in return.
They are equal on points with second place Galatasaray, but their goal difference is poor as we know. At present they are undefeated in 4 games on the trot in all competitions, of which 3 are wins.
In the last 8 games across all venues, they have won 6 and lost only once. At home, they have 3 wins in recent 5 matches and have lost only one.
The Akigo are 16th in the table with 6 defeats and only 2 wins in 11 matches so far. They too are conceding more than they score. As of now they have given away 19 goals and scored only 11.
The team managed by Cihat Arsian are unbeaten in their last 2 league games. But they had a 5 game losing streak in all competitions before that. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 6 of their last 8 matches in all competitions.
At present they have an active 7 game losing streak away from home and over 2.5 goals came in 6 of those matches.
Things do not look hopeful; for Arsian’s team when they travel to one of the strongest team at home.
Antalyaspor vs Akhisarspor: Head-to-head (h2h)

Antalyaspor vs Akhisarspor: Prediction
The home team is the favorites going into this match. They lost only 3 matches in the league to teams at the top of the table like Galatasaray and Basaksehir recently. Other than these losses, they have found consistency in the competition. So I don’t think, this opposition can beat them at home. So we can bet on the home side to win based on their home form with 1.50 odds.
The visitors have been conceding a large number of goals in their away matches. Over 2.5 goals came in total in 4 games on the trot for them in away fixtures. Even if they score in this match the hosts have forwards in form who can find the target when they wish. I think this game will have over 2.5 goals in total. So a bet can be placed on the same with 1.83 odd.
