Fenerbahce vs Istanbul Basaksehir Prediction
Fenerbahce pulled off a comfortable 2-0 win over Kayserispor in their most recent matchup in the Turkish Cup. The hosts have been coping well in their Super Lig campaign as well, and are currently on a three-match winning streak in the same.
With thirty-four points in the bag, the home team have been placed fourth on the ladder, two points adrift of Istanbul Basaksehir who are second.
Meanwhile, the visitors will be making the trip to Ulker Stadyumu on the back of a goalless draw on the road against Kirklarelispor in the Turkish Cup.
Having said that, the guests are on a promising run in the first division. They have not admitted defeat in any of their past sixteen Super Lig fixtures and have been tasting nothing but success in their last three on the trot.
However, it is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have dropped points on four occasions in their outings this season. In sharp contrast, Fenerbahce have just been too hot to handle at home lately.
Impressively, they have come out on top in each of their past six fixtures here in all competitions. Given that Istanbul Basaksehir have secured the bragging rights just once in the past decade here, count on Fenerbahce to have their guns blazing in this one.
Be that as it may, the visitors have proved, more than once, that they are capable of upsetting the odds. The guests have salvaged a point four times on the road this season.
Given that two of their last three visits here have also ended in a tie, a draw no bet is sizing up to be the safest punt this weekend.
Furthermore, the hosts are guilty of possessing a leaky defense. They have kept a clean sheet just once here so far. And have conceded nine goals in the process as well.
On the other hand, Istanbul Basaksehir know their way around in the final third, even on the road. As of now, they have scored six goals from their past three outings alone in the league.
Considering that the reverse fixture of this matchup also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, expect the two sides to have their scoring boots on come Saturday too.
