Istanbul Basaksehir vs Goztepe Prediction
Tamer Tuna’s men are winless in their last five away ties, and they have managed to record a single win from their prior 15 road trips. Also, at the start of the year, they went through a stretch of eight winless games on the road, with seven of those ending in losses.
On the other hand, their counterparts are unbeaten in their prior five overall games and remained so in eight of their last nine. At home, they remained invincible in 16 of their previous 20 attempts as well.
Finally, Buruk’s men have been dominating h2h clashes too for quite a long time, and with the help of the home advantage, they should figure out a way to record the three points this weekend.
Coming to goals though, either boasts of a fantastic defense, and they have the stats to back up this claim. At present, Goz Goz has conceded the least number of goals of all the teams in the competition, and this further increases the chance for the tie to end as a low goal-scoring affair.
