Antalyaspor vs Fenerbahce Prediction
Antalyaspor picked up a second consecutive win, last week on the road, by getting the better of Yeni Malatyaspor with a narrow 2-1 scoreline.
Despite their counterparts canceling the opener, by Fredy, in the opening forty-five minutes of that latter clash, a late strike from Lukas Podolski ensured that all the spoils went their way at the last blast of the whistle. Admirably, the hosts are now unbeaten in their past five games in the top flight.
With twenty-five points in the bag, the home team are currently sitting eleventh on the ladder, thirteen points adrift of their foes for the weekend.
On the other hand, Fenerbahce have been hit by a sharp decline in form which has seen them fail to pick up a win in their past four games. In fact, their most recent clash at home saw them lose 3-1 to Galatasaray.
Be that as it may, Fenerbahce have salvaged a point at the least in seven of their outings this season. It is also worth mentioning that the guests have stumbled just thrice in their last ten trips on the road. That too, in all competitions.
Furthermore, the visitors are also unbeaten in their last two trips to this stadium. Taking into account that the hosts have come out on top just once in their previous eight games here, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Fenerbahce this week.
However, Antalyaspor have shared the spoils four times at home so far. Considering that their last meeting with this foe here had also ended as a tie, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Additionally, Fenerbahce have not been keen on racking up the goals scoring charts on the road. They have scored just fourteen goals as of now, which is just half of what they have managed at home.
Meanwhile, Antalyaspor have not found the back of the net in two of their past three games here. Given that all of their previous three h2h meetings at this stadium have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, a low scoring affair is certainly looming large in this one.
