Antalyaspor vs Sivasspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: 6 March 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Antalya Stadyumu (Antalya).

Bottom-half rivals Antalyaspor and Sivasspor are ready to lock horns on Sunday afternoon in Matchday No 28 at Antalya Stadyumu.

The two sides sit right next to each other in the Super Lig standings. Sivasspor are in a somewhat better position being two points above their Sunday counterparts.

The red zone is only five points away from Antalyaspor, meaning this could prove out to be a very important match for both outfits.

Both teams were in action in mid-week, achieving different results in the process. Antalyaspor were eliminated from Turkish Cup after a 2-0 defeat at Super Lig leaders Trabzonspor on Tuesday, while Sivasspor saw off Fatih Karagumruk 1-0 on the home patch to advance to the semifinal of the competition the day after.

Antalyaspor will rely on their stern back line in search of a result here. They have kept six clean sheets in the last eight matches they played in all competitions.

Dutch manager Alfons Groenendijk generally favors defensive-minded style. This is why only two of the last six games Antalyaspor played saw three or more goals scored.

Looking at Sivasspor’s mid-week performance in a 1-0 victory over Fatih Karagumruk, we would not be surprised to see the continuation of a low-scoring trend in their affairs.

Also, it is important to note that Sivasspor have been struggling to translate some string home performances on travels so far in the season.

Riza Calimbay’s men will thus go into this game off the back of four defeats in the last five away outings in Super Lig.

Antalyaspor vs Sivasspor Head-to-head

  • The previous head to head meeting between these two teams offered a goal fest as they shared spoils in a 2-2 draw in mid-October last year at Yeni Sivas 4 Eylul Stadyumu.
  • Nonetheless, only two of the previous seven head to head meetings between the two outfits produced three or more goals.
  • Four of the last seven head to head clashes ended in stalemates.

Antalyaspor vs Sivasspor Prediction

Antalyaspor have been playing defensive-minded football lately and Sivasspor had two 1-0 scorelines in the last three matches in all competitions.

Knowing that five of the last seven H2H outings between the two teams saw fewer than three goals scored, we will go with the Under 2.5 goals FT as the main betting option at the 1.66 odds.

Antalyaspor vs Sivasspor Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66 (4/6)
  • Draw @ 3.20 (11/5) odd.
