Antalyaspor vs Denizlispor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Antalya Arena (Antalya).
The hosts got the better of Goztepe in their opener on the road and came away with all three points, as Angelo netted the only goal of the game for his side. Antalyaspor were certainly much the better team in that clash and managed to take ten attempts at goal, three of which were right on target.
Denizlispor made their way back into the first division after spending nine years in the lower tier. The squad announced their arrival in resounding fashion by taking down the reigning champions Galatasaray at home. The visitors scored two unanswered goals past the titleholders who were a man down at the break following Marcao dismissal.
With home advantage out of the equation for Denizlispor, the chances of recording back to back wins, however, are looming large for their opponents Antalyaspor.

Antalyaspor vs Denizlispor Prediction
The home team admitted defeat on just six occasions in their previous campaign on home soil and have lost just once in their last five clashes here as well.
Although Denizlispor did take down the mighty Galatasaray in their respective opener, that alone does not guarantee that they will be able to fare well in their trips on the road.
Furthermore, Antalyaspor have been coping well against this opponent in their previous clashes. Out of their last eight fixtures with Denizlispor at this venue, the hosts have been at the losing end no more than once.
Considering that the home team have also been coming out on top in their last three meetings in a row as well, Antalyaspor are the favorites to secure all three points in this one.
Four of their last five matchups here have seen goals down each end and over 2.5 goals on the scorecards. Given that both the teams found the back of the net in their respective opening matches as well, expect a goal-scoring spree by the end of the ninety minutes.
