Gaziantep vs Fenerbahce
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Gaziantep Stadyumu (Gaziantep).
Fenerbahce look to bounce back from a humiliating defeat last week when they travel to Gaziantep for Saturday’s Turkish Super Lig match.
Fener suffered their third home defeat on the bounce last week, against Yeni Malatyaspor, a team that was without a win on the road this season. They had previously lost to Besiktas and Konyaspor and this poor run of results in a bitter blow to their title chances.
Among the positives, is a solid away record and they are the only team yet to lose in travels this season, though the number of games played is a humble 6. However, 5 wins and 14 goals in this period is an excellent stat and this helped them to stay at 3rd in the league table, 3 behind surprise leaders Alanyaspor.
Gaziantep are no pushovers and they are faring well and sit at 6th on the log, 5 points behind their Saturday’s visitors.
They are unbeaten at home, though only 2 wins came from the 5 games played so far. Away record is also decent and they picked up 2 wins and 3 draws, this means they are one of the toughest teams to beat in the division at this point of time.
Head-to-head & Previous Meetings
Fenerbahce won all three previous meetings with Gaziantep and those wins came without conceding a goal.
Last season, we saw a 2-0 scoreline at this ground after the thumping 5-0 win at the Ulker Stadium.
Gaziantep vs Fenerbahce Prediction
Turkish Super Lig has been fairly inconsistent in terms of results and we are expecting some surprises in this match as well. Gaziantep are a team that lost just 1 of the 11 league matches this season and they will not be buoyed by a traditional heavy weight.
At the same time, Fener have to do this without some key players. Ademi, Lemos, Perotti, Samatta, Tekin and Enner Valencia are the missing players through various injuries.
Backing goals offer punters some decent value since the hosts saw btts in 9 of their 11 games this season and Fenerbahce saw the same in 6 of their last 8.
