Antalyaspor vs Kayserispor
Turkey – Super Lig.
Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Antalya Arena (Antalya).
The Scorpions will be looking to improve their position in the league table with a possible win over Kayserispor this Saturday.
Hosts are playing with a newfound vigor this year. The team which finished 14th last time around are 6th after 17 matches are completed.
Defensive duties have been below par as they gave away 21 goals which are 2 more than what they scored all season. At present they are without a win in their last 2 matches in the league.
From their last 5 competitive fixtures, they only have 2 wins and a loss against Yeni Malatyaspor is also included in that period. All 4 of those 5 games had a total score with less than 2.5 goals at the full time.
At home, they are unbeaten in the last 4 matches in which the latest 3 were draws. Their inability to defend has been key in losing valuable points which may haunt them at the end of the season.
Anatolian Star is under pressure as they are just 3 points away from the relegation zone. With 19 points from 17 games, they are 13th at the moment.
The bad habit of giving away goals has been their story so far as a total of 25 goals have been conceded; 10 more than what they managed to score.
Currently, they are unbeaten in their previous 3 league games which includes 2 wins. From their last 5 games from all competitions, they have 3 wins and a loss. Three of those 5 games had more than 2.5 goals at the full time.
In away games, they have 2 wins and the same number of defeats in the last 5 matches but are unbeaten in the last 3. Not surprisingly the team managed by Hikmet Karaman have conceded in 3 of those matches on the road.
Antalyaspor vs Kayserispor: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Kayserispor have dominated the recent 5 h2h matches with 4 wins and only one loss against these opponents.
- Less than 2.5 goals were scored in total on 3 of those games and the final score in all those matches were 2-0.
- The hosts have 3 wins and a defeat in the recent 5 h2h matches against the Anatolian Star in the previous 5 meetings here.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 5 games and the hosts scored 2 goals in 3 of those matches.
Antalyaspor vs Kayserispor: Prediction
The visitors have been inconsistent all season. Even though they have been unbeaten in their last 3 away games, they lost 5 matches prior to that. So based on their home form and h2h stats, I would recommend betting on the Scorpions to win with 1.70 odds.
The home side has conceded 21 goals and the visitors have also given away 25 goals all season. Since they both have no clean sheets in recent games we can expect them to repeat the same on Saturday too. Thus a bet can be placed on both sides to score with 1.85 odds.
