Istanbul Basaksehir vs Antalyaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: 27 December 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Istanbul Basaksehir host Antalyaspor in Matchday No 16 of Turkish Super Lig on Tuesday afternoon at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu.
The hosts got off to a decent start to the 2022/23 campaign but they form went on a slide in the last four rounds before the World Cup break.
Istanbul Basaksehir suffered two of their three season losses during this negative run, including a demolishing 0-7 defeat at the hands of Galatasaray in mid-November.
Enre Beloztoglu’s men had conceded only four goals in the inaugural 11 rounds of the season, only to allow ten in the last two matches (including a 3-3 draw at Hatayspor).
It will be very interesting to see how Belozoglu’s back line will perform during the festive period.
They are the favorites here against Antalyaspor who have been a poor defensive side throughout the season.
The visitors currently occupy the 11th place in the league standings and they have been very easy to break down in the recent friendlies.
Antalyaspor allowed two goals to Maccabi Tel Aviv, three to Napoli, and three to Fatih Karagumruk in all three defeats in the preparation games during the World Cup break.
On another note, it is worth noting that Nuri Sahin’s troops went on a one-month break after winning three league games on the trot.
