Fenerbahce vs Osmanlispor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 8 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Ulker Stadyumu Fenerbahce Sukru Saracoglu Spor Kompleksi (Istanbul).
Osmanlispor have grabbed a massive survival lifeline escaping the red zone with an impressive run of five straight games without a defeat in Super Lig. Irfan Buz and his men, however, still have a mountain to climb in order to be safe at the end of the season being just one point above Genclerbirligi in 16th. Their strong run will be on a huge test on Sunday evening when they are about to visit the capital to take on the likes of Fenerbahce at Sukru Saracoglu Stadyumu.
The hosts still dream of the title, but it’s a long way to go for them at the moment. The Yellow Canaries are as many as six points shy of table-toppers Galatasaray and they can’t afford a slip-up until the end of the season. The hosts will also come into the game high on confidence after netting five goals in a demolishing 0-5 victory over Kayseri after the international break.
Roberto Soldado has led Aykut Kocaman’s team by betting a brace away at Kayseri. The top scorer Giuliano has also found the net bagging his 13th goal of the campaign. The Brazilian winger has netted three in last four games and he will also be a major threat to the Ottomans’ goal on Sunday.
Fenerbahce vs Osmanlispor: Head-to-head
Fenerbahce have only slipped-up once in eight home clashes with Osmanlispor (seven wins and a draw).
It is interesting to note that none of last five head to head games between these two sides has produced three or more goals.
Teams have shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they met in Ankara in this term of Super Lig.
Fenerbahce vs Osmanlispor: Prediction
Osmanlispor have only conceded two goals in last five league games, but they are up against league’s heavyweights here any anything but a convincing home win would be a major upset here.
The hosts will go strong looking for the early opener and we find the value in backing them to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 1.72.
Alternatively, Roberto Soldado is worth backing as the anytime goalscorer at the same 1.72 odds after he notched a brace last time out against Kayseri.
