Bursaspor vs Ankaragucu
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 6 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Bursa Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu (Bursa).
Ankaragucu have seen their four-game winning streak ended by Antalyaspor on Monday and they travel to Bursa for their Matchday 8 clash on Saturday looking for a return to the winning ways, with just three points lag behind the top 4 and great away records to build on here.
Ismail Kartal’s men have narrowly beaten both Akhisarspor and BB Erzurumspor in Super Lig beforehand as well as Serik Belediyespor in the Cup beforehand, which should have them very confident on the day. They hope to capitalize on the home sides’ very underwhelming start and climb the table over them with important points at Bursa Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu.
Bursaspor have earned just five points in first seven outings, seeing a streak of six consecutive draws across competitions ended only with a 2-0 loss at Sivasspor last week. They have been tough to score against and based their unbeatable streak on such performances, which will be more worrying for the visitors as we expect another very narrow occasion in Bursa in the making.
Bursaspor vs Ankaragucu: Head-to-head
- Ankaragucu snatched a 0-2 win in the sides’ August friendly.
- This was their first head-to-head clash in six years, as Bursaspor earned five wins and four draws in nine matchups beforehand.
- We’ve seen just five goals in the sides’ last four games, which proves to the points we should be in for another tough contest now.
Bursaspor vs Ankaragucu: Prediction
We will stick our necks out for Bursaspor to hold off the rivals once again and we’ll now go for a Draw at 3.40, which seems a great value seeing the home side struggle to bounce to the winning ways but continually prove themselves a tough side to beat at this ground.
We thus expect few goals on the day as well and Under 2.5 goals FT could even seem generous at 1.75, as both enjoy good defensive setups and rarely net many goals. We have seen two or fewer goals in three of the last four head to head matchups too and we do see this as further evidence for such a bet.
Bursaspor vs Ankaragucu: Bet Tips
Draw @ 3.40 (12/5)
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.75 (3/4).
