Fenerbahce vs Goztepe
Turkey – Super Lig.
Date: Friday, 1st February 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium (Istanbul).
The current runners up have hit rock bottom in this season of the Turkish Super Lig. They are just 2 points away from the relegation spot after losing 7 of their 19 league matches. The defense of the Yellow Canaries has given away more goals than what they scored all season.
After a 4 match winless run, they finally got 3 points against Yeni Malatyaspor in a home fixture. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last 5 competitive games. They have 2 wins and a defeat in their last 4 home matches. Certainly, they are far better at home when compared to the matches on the road.
Goz Goz is not much better than their opponents for Friday. They have lost their last 2 league games against the champions Galatasaray and Yeni Malatyaspor. The team from Izmir has scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their 6 previous matches across all venues.
But far from home, they are without a win in the last 2 matches. In 4 of their last 5 matches on the road, the final score had over 2.5 goals at the final whistle. They scored 2 or more goals in 4 games in that spell but failed to keep a clean sheet in 3 of them as well.
The reverse fixture was won by Goztepe, so the hosts have an opportunity for revenge and to extend their winning run in h2h matches to 3 games.
