Gaziantep FK vs Yeni Malatyaspor Prediction

Gaziantep were on the road the last match-day, and they narrowly recorded a win in a high-scoring affair against Kasimpasa. The match had ended in a 3-4 scoreline in favor of the former.

In the meantime, Yeni had locked horns with Rizespor the previous game week, and in spite of the backing of the home crowd, Malatyaspor had to succumb to a 0-2 defeat.

This Sunday, in regards to result, take into account the fact that Gaziantep are a newly promoted team, and that they have lost the previous two h2h games in a row.

In addition, they have managed to score just two goals from the last four such meetings, and they are yet to record a win against this opponent at this venue.

On the contrary, Yeni were unbeaten in nine of their last eleven overall matches this season, and have lost a total of just two times on the road in 2019-20. One of these losses had come against Trabzonspor, currently the third-placed team in the table.

Considering these observations, and especially the fact that Yeni are much more experienced in the top flight, Malatyaspor are expected to be the better team on the pitch. As such, a Double Chance bet on Yeni Malatyaspor should bring good returns.

However, do understand that Gaziantep have the home advantage, and that they have scored a total of ten goals from their last three matches. Moreover, only once have they failed to find the back of the net at home this season, and it was against Galatasaray, one of the best teams in the country.

Finally, take into account the fact that Yeni have conceded two or more goals in six of their previous ten fixtures on the road this season as well.

All these factors combine together to pick out the BTTS as another top pick this Sunday in the Super Lig.
