Fenerbahce vs Hatayspor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: 27 December 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Ulker Stadyumu Fenerbahce Sukru Saracoglu Spor Kompleksi (Istanbul).
Fenerbahce will continue the busy winter schedule with the home clash against Hatayspor on Tuesday afternoon in the 16th round of Super Lig.
The current table toppers had a tough game against Trabzonspor three days ago and head coach Jorge Jesus should rotate his starting XI for this game.
Luckily for Fener’s fans, the famous Portuguese manager has such a diverse and rich array of available players.
It includes the likes of Michy Batshuayi, Enner Valencia, Joao Pedro, Joshua King, Diego Rossi, Serdar Dursun, Bruma, Lincoln, Emre Mor, Irfan Kahveci, and Miguel Crespo among others.
Fenerbahce have been scoring goals for fun in the mid-season friendlies as they have won all four clashes against Rayo Vallecano, Villarreal, Alanyaspor, and Salernitana.
Jesus’ men have notched at least three goals in four of the last five outings, a run that includes the last weekend’s 3-1 win over Istanbulspor in the fifth round of Turkish Cup.
Hatayspor should not represent a massive threat to the current leaders. They hold the 14th position in the league ladder and they have lost 7 of the opening 13 games of the season.
The team led by Volkan Demirel have scored a league-low 12 goals in 13 matches before the World Cup break.
Hatay’s defensive line did not look great in mid-season friendlies either since the team allowed five goals in a demolishing defeat to Lazio in the last check earlier this month.
Fenerbahce vs Hatayspor Head-to-head
- On top of this season’s form, Fenerbahce can rely on short tradition in this matchup since they won three and drew one of the last four H2H clashes against Hatayspor.
- Fenerbahce easily won each of the last season’s two H2H meetings with Hatay.
- Fenerbahce bagged two goals in each of the previous three head to head outings.
Fenerbahce vs Hatayspor Prediction
Fenerbahce are huge favorites here and the only question is how many goals will end up in Hatayspor’s net. We expect the number will be larger than two as the home win by two or more goals difference looks like a great betting option at the odds of 2.10.
You can alternatively back Fenerbahce to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 1.90 odds.
