Erzurumspor vs Bursaspor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 4 May 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Kazim Karabekir Stadyumu.
Erzurumspor have picked it up lately and now host Bursaspor for their all-important Matchday 31 clash on Saturday looking for important points in a battle to escape relegation late in the campaign, boasting great spirits after bagging seven points in the last three outings.
Hamza Hamzaoglu’s men have seen some very narrow clashes lately but we’ve seen them turn it their way against Akhisarspor and Goztepe, building on the success with a just as important point in a 1-1 draw at top 4 chasers Antalyaspor. They’ve been scoring goals regularly and the crowd at Kazim Karabekir Stadyumu will surely want more of the same.
Bursaspor have, on the other hand, seen more troubles lately as they dropped into the relegation zone and sit just a point clear of the rivals. They’ve shared the spoils in draws against Kasimpasa and rock-bottomed Akhisarspor but we now feel Green Crocodiles will need more to snatch points in Erzurum, with very worrying records on the road lately.
Erzurumspor vs Bursaspor: Head-to-head
This will be the sides’ only second head-to-head clash ever as Erzurum joined the top flight.
Bursaspor secured the home points earlier this term with goals from Meras and Latovlevici.
Erzurum BB have been a tougher side to beat at this ground and now hope to show that once again.
Erzurumspor vs Bursaspor: Prediction
We will back them to do just that and stick our necks out for the home side to bag all three points, jumping the rivals at a crucial point in the campaign with a Home win priced at 2.30. They’ve been tough here and backing them feels like more than just a lively longshot at this point.
However, Bursaspor will have to go all out for the points if they concede and we thus feel we should be in for an exciting contest despite the high stakes. We’ll go for a high-scoring contest at Kazim Karabekir Stadyumu with Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.10!
