Turkey- Super Lig.
Date: Saturday, 01 December 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul).
The hosts have been prolific at the start of the season. They have scored a total of 19 goals in matches so far. The leaders have only conceded 5 goals so far which makes them the best defense in the competition. From 13 matches they won 9 and lost only once.
Basaksehir is unbeaten in the last 11 matches in which they won 8. At present they are on a 5 match win streak across all venues in the Super Lig. In 7 of their previous 8 matches, the total score was fewer than 2.5 goals. Apart from Galatasaray, they are the only team to remain unbeaten at home till now.
From their 6 home games in the league, they have 5 wins and a draw. At home, they are better in defense conceding only 2 goals. Currently, they are on a 2 match winning run at home.
The Yigidos are 12th in the table with 4 defeats and 3 wins. This is mainly due to their disappointing defensive performance. They have given away 19 goals so far in the league while scoring 4 less. Their inability to stay strong at the back resulted in 6 draws already.
In their last 6 fixtures from all competitions, they have lost twice and has only 1 win to go with it. Under 2.5 goals came in 4of their last 5 matches across all venues. They lost 3 of their 6 away matches in the league till now. A whopping 13 goals have been conceded in those 6 matches.
A 7 match winless run in matches on the road ended when they beat the strong Besiktas side in their last league game. Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of their last 5 away games in both Cup and the league.
Since the visitors had a great time in their last away match, we can expect a similar performance from them. But only time will tell if they can beat the high flying league leaders.

Basaksehir vs Sivasspor: Prediction
The hosts are at the top of the table and never lost a home match. This is more than enough to make them the favorites on Saturday. So even with a recent away win against Besiktas I don’t think the visitors will get 3 points out of this one. Thus a bet can be placed on the hosts to win with 1.50 odd.
The hosts have scored 19 goals so far. But they have not won matches with a huge margin. For instance three of their recent games had a total score of under 2.5 goals. In total 9 of their 13 matches in the league saw a similar scoreline. This trend can be also seen in 7 games of Sivasspor as well. So we can bet on a final score with fewer than 2.5 goals with 1.95 odd.
