Gaziantep vs Alanyaspor
Turkey Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 27 December 2020
Kick-Off at 10.30 UK
Venue: Gaziantep Stadyumu, Gaziantep.
Sunday’s action in Turkish Super Lig is starting with a derby game between Gaziantep FK and 1st placed Alanyaspor. Visitors are without a doubt the biggest surprise package in the league, having won 27 points after 14 games.
There were some signs of their form declining lately though, so home fans definitely have reason to be optimistic. Gaziantep were super-efficient and victorious in the last four appearances across competitions, scoring 12 goals. Despite that, bookies labelled them as underdogs here, priced at 2.70 odds to win the match. After all, their opponents have the best defense in the league.
Gaziantep vs Alanyaspor Head-to-head
There were seven head to head matches between these two opponents in the past. Stats are heavily going in favour of Alanya who haven’t lost one single duel, while winning six. Goal difference is 16-3 in their favour which averages around 2.65 per game.
The most recent game was played in March this year in Alanya. Hosts celebrated narrow 1-0 victory thanks to the goal of Steven Caulker.
Gaziantep vs Alanyaspor Prediction
As mentioned above, Marius Smadica’s boys have been on fire lately, consecutively beating Istanbul Basaksehir, Kocaelispor, Fenerbahce and Kasimpasa with style. The most impressive performance was against 3rd placed Fener, ending 3-1 FT. Alexandru Maxim has once again player on very high level, scoring one goal (sixth of the season) and providing one assist. All these victories have pushed Gaziantep FK to the 5th place, just three points behind table leaders and their next opponent.
After hard-fought 2-1 win against Besiktas, team Alanyaspor have underperformed against Denizli (lost 0-1) and Malatyaspor (1-1 at home). Their form is obviously going down, and we don’t think they will be able to claim victory against in-form hosts. Gaziantep to win or draw double chance at 1.55 is going to be our banker bet.
