Antalyaspor vs Erzurumspor Predictions & Match Preview

Antalyaspor vs Erzurumspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Antalya Arena (Antalya).

Erzurum is in the relegation zone and needs to overcome one point in the next five match-days. The task might not be that hard, considering the team is in better form than the ones next to them on the points table. Kudos to the squad though – they were allotted two easier fixtures in the last two match-days, the two teams below them in the relegation zone – and taking advantage of the favorable draw, the team recorded wins in both.

Antalyaspor may in the top-six, but stand little to no chance at all to make it to the playoffs. They are 11 points below the last such spot, and there’s only 15 left to play for. The only positive thing that’s left for them this week is the fact that they are at home.

Antalyaspor vs Erzurumspor Head-to-head (h2h)

  • These two teams have met just twice in the last two decades.
  • One was the reverse fixture of this tie, which Erzurum won at home, with a 1-0 scoreline, and the other was a cup game back in 2014.
  • Both teams found the back of the net in the only encounter that’s taken place at this venue.
  • The teams at home have always scored goals, preventing the teams on the road with at least a single clean sheet.

Antalyaspor vs Erzurumspor Prediction

Antalyaspor won the last two home-ties, and three of the last four in overall. Erzurum, meanwhile, was winless in 13 of their last 17 games, and in 14 of their last 15 on the road. Importantly, Antalyaspor is a top-tier team, and safe from all the happenings at the end of the table, whereas Erzurum is fighting to avoid relegation.

The terrible away record of Erzurum will probably be their undoing in this game, as well as their season. Antalyaspor is currently in the sixth position in the table. With Alanyaspor tied for points, and in the fifth spot, Antalyaspor might have an opportunity as well as wish to finish fifth, just below the play-off spots – an achievement in itself.

Expect the hosts to avoid a loss this Saturday.
