Bursaspor vs Konyaspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Monday, 4 February 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Bursa Buyusksehir Belediye Stadyumu (Bursa).
Konya got off to a perfect start to the year as back-to-back wins over BB Erzurumspor and Antalyaspor helped them break into the top four in Super Lig standings. They are now just four points shy of second-placed Galatasaray.
Can Anatolian Eagle keep their excellent spell of form going and claim third successive victory on Monday evening when they travel to Bursa Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu?
They will be playing “kings of draws” in the last fixture of the round. Bursa head into this off the back of four consecutive draws, three of which ended with the same 1-1 scoreline.
The Green Crocodiles failed to take advantage of an extra man on the pitch for more than half an hour of the last weekend’s affair against Kayseri away at Kadir Has Sehir Stadi. Left winger Yusuf Erdogan pushed Bursa in front 30 minutes into the game, but Kayseri got back on level terms just three minutes after the break when Cristian Sapunaru set the final score.
Bursaspor vs Konyaspor: Head-to-head
Bursa can rely heavily on the head to head tradition aiming to end their streak of draws.
Bursa Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu has always been a fortress for Konyaspor.
The Green Crocodiles won 13, drew 3 and lost only 2 of 18 home matches against Anatolian Eagle.
Just two of last eight head to head encounters between these two likes saw three or more goals scored.
Bursaspor vs Konyaspor: Prediction
The draw seems to be the most logical option here. The hosts have been the dominant force in the head to head tradition, but Konyaspor will come into this higher on confidence following back-to-back wins over Erzurumspor and Antalyaspor.
We don’t expect a goal fest since both teams were generally tough to break down throughout the entire season and particularly at the start of the year. Since six of last eight H2H games also produced fewer than three goals scored, the Under 2.5 goals FT has to be the way to go at 1.57 odds.
Bursaspor vs Konyaspor: Bet Tips
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.57 (4/7)
Draw @ 3.10 (21/10).
