Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Gaziantep Arena (Gaziantep).
One of the powerhouses of the Super Lig, Basaksehir, messed up their start to their season in a grand manner, and now they are treading carefully to get back on track. They surely have a tough encounter to anticipate this Sunday against the in-form Gaziantep, but considering the experience the visitors have in dealing with crunch situations, they should come out on top.

Gaziantep vs Istanbul Basaksehir Prediction
Basaksehir is slowly getting into their groove, and once they attain their rhythm back, it would be hard to stop them. At present, they are six points off the top spot but considering that leaders Alanyaspor are taking on tough customer Besiktas, there’s still hope to catch on.
The fact that the hosts are a new addition to this league will act as a hindrance, and to pile on, last season while they had been battling for promotion in the lower division, their counterparts were involved in the title race.
Furthermore, over the course of the last several years, Istanbul has fearfully dominated this opponent.
Moreover, just the last day, Buruk’s men recorded a fantastic 5-0 win to make a statement to the rest of the league, and giving credence to their stature, the best course would be to back them to post the three points on the board.
However, the form Gazisehir has been on, simply cannot be discarded. They are unbeaten in their previous seven fixtures and won five of them. They also scored twice or more in four of their preceding five games, and at home, are unbeaten in the previous five appearances, of which they managed to win four. Finally, they also managed to score a total of 15 goals from these five appearances and as such, the expectation is that they will find the back of the net at least once this Sunday.
