Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kasimpasa Prediction
Basaksehir bagged a comfortable 4-1 away win at Kayserispor to stay in the title race and they will be keen to make home advantage count this weekend while going against an unpredictable custodian like Kasimpasa.
Okan Buruk’s men must be doing much better at home as they have been hot and cold so far. Four wins from 8 home games with 3 draws and 1 loss is not an optimal stat for title contenders.
Currently, Basaksehir are 4 points behind surprise league leaders Sivasspor and are chased by Trabzonspor, Fenerbahce and Besiktas from within a 3-point range. Therefore, Saturday’s league fixture is a must win.
Kasimpasa have the ability to surprise and pick up a few scalps on the way, however, they have flopped against big sides this season. Still, they perform better on the road than at home and this can be seen in the 3W-1D-4L from 8 away games as against 1W-2D-5L at home.
Yet, they were comprehensively defeated by the likes of Galatasaray, a 10-men Fener and Sivasspor, which means Basaksehir could get the three points if they do not do anything stupid at the back.
Also, while considering this h2h matchup in the past has produced goals, we could take a shot at btts and over 2.5 goal markets.
