Turkey Super Lig

Kick-Off at 16.00 UK
Venue: Fatih Terim Stadyumu, Istanbul.
Form and results of Super Lig reigning champions Istanbul Basaksehir is beyond horrible. The squad has been struggling since day one, managing to collect only 15 points from opening 13 rounds. It does sound incredible to realize that champions are just three points away from the relegation zone. Team has been winless for five rounds in a row, but hoping tides could change this Sunday in Istanbul against Kasimpasa.
Their opponents are three positions and three points higher on the ladder, but still considered as big underdogs at Fatih Terim Stadium. It will be interesting to see if Okan Buruk’s boys can recover in upcoming weeks. The current odds offered on home win are at 1.55.

Everyone thought that Istanbul Basaksehir are on their way to top after connecting four victories in mid-October and early November. They managed to beat Trabzon, Antalya, Konya and Genclerbirligi.
The streak was interrupted with painful 2-3 loss in city derby to Besiktas. Duo which was key in winning the title last year Demba Ba and Edin Visca is completely out of shape, managing to score total of only four goals this season.
