Erzurumspor vs Alanyaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 6 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Kazım Karabekir Stadyumu (Erzurum).
Despite Cup success against Ankara Demirspor and a tough challenge at Turk Telekom Stadyumu last week, Erzurum BB have seen their Super Lig woes continue with a 1-0 loss to Galatasaray. They now host Alanyaspor sitting rock-bottomed after seven games with just two points to their name, still looking for their first league win this term.
Alanyaspor have seen a struggling start but now come into the match in a much better shape, after connecting a four-game winning streak in Super Lig. They have narrowly beaten Goztepe, Trabzonspor, Kasımpasa, and Akhisarspor along the way and now hope for an upset at Kazım Karabekir Stadyumu too!
Mesut Bakkal’s men have an in-form Papiss Cisse leading the line up front, who netted three goals in his last two appearances and they will surely rely on him as they look for their fifth consecutive win. Alanyaspor sit just three points behind the table-toppers Galatasaray and we will surely see a very motivated outfit to challenge them as soon as this weekend!
Erzurumspor vs Alanyaspor: Head-to-head
- This will be the sides’ first head-to-head clash ever, both looking for the historic first win over the rivals.
- Alanyaspor are in a much better shape at this point, with a very solid streak behind them.
- Erzurum haven’t really enjoyed their first top-flight campaign and will be in for another very tough challenge here.
Erzurumspor vs Alanyaspor: Prediction
We will now stick our necks out for Alanyaspor to build on their winning streak and capitalize on the rivals’ woes, going for an Away win at an eye-catching 3.10. This seems like great value seeing their form of recent and we do believe they have what it takes for an upset in Erzurum.
However, we don’t see it coming easy and they could have to outgun Erzurum BB to secure the points, as we expect a high-scoring contest and go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.85. They have seen two such clashes lately and this shapes to be another fine approach to the fixture here.
