Bursaspor vs Alanyaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Friday, 26 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Bursa Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu (Bursa).
Bursaspor offered a strong resistance against the reigning champions Galatasaray as they held Cimbom to a 1-1 draw seven days ago away at Turk Telekom Stadyumu. It was the sixth draw in nine rounds for the Green Crocodiles who will be looking to finally snatch their second victory of the campaign on Friday evening against mid-table rivals Alanyaspor.
Samet Aybaba can be thrilled with his men’s defensive performances as Bursa boast league’s second best defensive record with only eight goals conceded so far in the season. They showed the rock-solid defense in the aforementioned draw to Galatasaray and they will no doubts be a very tough nut to crack for Alanyaspor when the two teams take on each other in the first match of the round in Super Lig.
Bursaspor vs Alanyaspor: Head-to-head
Sides snatched two wins apiece ahead of their fifth head to head encounter.
Both teams picked up victories in front of the home crowd in the previous term of Super Lig, netting three goals each in the process.
All of last three head to head affairs saw at least four goals scored as well as the BTTS option “coming in”.
Bursaspor vs Alanyaspor: Prediction
Alanya have been playing hot and cold so far in the season. They were on a three-win thread before losing back-to-back fixtures to the likes of BB Ezurumspor and Antalyaspor in last two rounds. Mesut Bakkal’s troops failed to find the back of the net along the way and we feel they will struggle to create in the build-up play here against the well-organized defense of Bursa’s.
The Green Crocodiles allowed only two goals in four home matches so far in the season and they are yet to be beaten at their Bursa Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu. We’ll stick with the hosts and back them to pick up the victory at the 2.00 odds.
