Fenerbahce vs Goztepe
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 4 July 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Ülker Stadyumu.
The Yellow Canaries are in possession of the final European spot at the moment. However, they have a lead of just one point at that position, over Alanyaspor. And on top of that, the latter are taking on the worst team in the whole competition this weekend – and obviously are expected to win.
Likely, Tahir Karapinar’s men have no option but to secure the three points this weekend. It helps that they have a terrific h2h record over this opponent recently, and especially so at this venue.
In addition, Ilhan Palut’s men have been a total disaster on the road as well. Taking into account these factors, expect a win for Fenerbahce this weekend.
Fenerbahce vs Goztepe: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Five of the former six wins had gone to the Canaries.

- They also scored two or more goals in five of the past six encounters.
- The hosts are on a winning streak since 2002 at this stadium.
- In the past 20 years, the home team have conceded a total of one goal at this ground.
Fenerbahce vs Goztepe: Prediction
Palut’s men have been struggling lately to put forth good performances. In fact, they were winless in eight of their past ten overall fixtures, and they are on a three-match losing run on the road. They had also lost seven of the preceding ten road trips, and were winless in eight of their last ten such games.
In addition, their counterparts have lost just once in h2h games since 2000, and have been on a winning run in such fixtures since 2000 at this ground. Moreover, they have conceded a total of one goal at this ground in the previous 20 years, while scoring two or more goals in five of the past six h2h matches.
Taking into account these stats, expect a winning performance from Fenerbahce.
