Antalyaspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 18 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Antalya Stadyumu (Antalya).
Yeni Malatyaspor went five points clear off Konya in the battle for the fifth-place finish in Super Lig. Tigers of the East thus need a victory in this penultimate round fixture against Antalyaspor to secure a place in the Europa League qualifications in the summer.
Ali Ravci’s men are enjoying a phenomenal spell of form coming into this 33rd round clash with Antalyaspor. They successfully rebounded from a tough 2-5 loss in the Turkish Cup semi-final against Galatasaray. Tigers of the east have won three consecutive games ever since. They bagged seven goals in the process, including three in last weekend’s home win over BB Erzurumspor (3-1).
Antalyaspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor: Head-to-head
Teams have one win, draw and loss apiece going into their fourth head to head encounter.
Yeni Malatyaspor claimed a 2-0 victory in this term of Super Lig back in mid-December last year.
Antalyaspor vs Yeni Malatyaspor: Prediction
The hosts also had a very interesting and successful campaign in this term of Super Lig. However, their form ran into a huge stumbling block in recent weeks. The Scorpions lost touch with Malatya in the battle for the fifth-place finish just in decisive moment. They fell 4-1 away at Goztepe before losing the home fixture 0-1 to Bursaspor last Friday.
Antalya are also winless in past two home outings in the league (a 1-1 draw to BB Erzurumspor and a 0-1 defeat to Bursaspor). They can still theoretically overtake Saturday’s counterparts who are five points away in fifth place, but it is hard to see their victory coming here given teams’ recent spell of form.
Malatya are massive form favourites, they also won this term’s H2H clash with the Scorpions and we recognize the value in backing them not to lose at the odds of 1.50. Alternatively, the visitors are also worth backing to score two or more goals at the odds of 2.25.
