Bursaspor vs Akhisarspor Predictions & Match Preview

Bursaspor vs Akhisarspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 28th April 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Bursa Atatürk Stadyumu (Bursa).

Bursaspor will not get a better chance to fight off relegation. With five match-days remaining, they are at home and are taking on the worst team in the competition. As of now, Bursaspor has a one-point surplus over the cut-off line, but need to be wary of Erzurum, who are just one point below and in the exit zone.

What scared Bursaspor is the fact that Erzurum seems to have raised their level when it was needed the most. They won the last two games in a row, and are really in a position to threaten the safety of Bursaspor. The fact that Erzurum is on the road this match-day, and is going against Antalyaspor, will buoy the hopes of the hosts for this tie.

Bursaspor vs Akhisarspor Prediction

Akhisarspor is the dead-last team in the league table and is the frontrunner to be the first relegated team of this season. They are also the worst team on the road. Moreover, the team lost the reverse fixture of this tie, even with home advantage, with the scorecard reading 2-4, in favor of the then guests. And in general, home teams usually have the upper hand in h2h encounters – with the last four such ties returning three home wins.

Akhisarspor has also conceded the second-most number of goals on the road, and in overall, trumped both times by the anomaly Kasimpasa.

Bursaspor will treat the game as a final, as they are desperate to shake off the relegation demons from their tail, and have just a one-point buffer to fall on. Also take into account that Erzurum is determined to avoid a boot to the lower division, and has won the last two ties.

For sure, Bursaspor will take advantage of their home status, and deliver in this crucial tie.
