Antalyaspor vs Bursaspor Predictions & Match Preview

Antalyaspor vs Bursaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 10th May 2019
Kick-off at 18.30 UK/ 19.30 CET
Venue: Antalya Arena (Antalya).

Bursaspor has three more games to rescue their season from being a disaster. They are in the relegation zone and needs to overcome a deficit of three points from the available nine to play for. But they do have a mountain to climb to achieve that. For this next tie, they are on the road, against a top-tier team. The side can count on their defense though, as they have let in just seven more goals than league-topper Galatasaray.

Antalyaspor is far from the relegation threat, while they have the opportunity to go after qualifying rounds of the Europa League. While Yeni Malatyaspor is in possession of it, they don’t boast of a pretty solid lead. With the next game being at home, the squad definitely would fancy a chance.

Antalyaspor vs Bursaspor Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Five of the last seven matches saw Antalyaspor taking the win.
  • Five of the last six games saw home wins.
  • The last three ties at this venue saw the hosts taking the three points.
  • The last two fixtures had under 2.5 goals.

Antalyaspor vs Bursaspor Prediction

Bursaspor really does need the win, but they are not in the form or mental state to go after it. They are winless in the last seven fixtures and have one win in the last six months. That’s a pretty drastic run even for the most loyal fans. On the road, their last win came back in November of 2018, and before that, an official win came in April.

The hosts really should end the game without a loss this weekend. Another perspective of the game is that Antalyaspor is playing comparatively relaxed, while the visitors are fighting for their lives. Moreover, Bursaspor has a formidable defense and taking into account their desperation for survival, they won’t allow the hosts a free run to their nets, while they themselves will be struggling to get past the home defense. As such, expect a low goal-scoring tie.
