Goztepe vs Fenerbahce
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 25 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Bornova Doganlar Stadi (Izmir).
Goztepe are going to take on Fenerbahce in the third round of Turkish Super Lig on Saturday evening.
The hosts had a very successful last season as they managed to secure the place in the top half of the table although their main goal was to avoid the relegation.
Bayram Bektas’ side has been doing pretty fine in front of the oppositions’ goal, while their defence wasn’t too bad.
Home side has been playing well in front of their fans as they suffeed just four defeats at home ground.
However, Goztepe cannot be proud of their start of the season as the hosts lost both opening clashes.
The last season’s runners-up have already started their campaign in the Champions League qualifiers, however they’ve been knocked out by Benfica, and finished their continental campaign on the first step.
The visitors have been partially successful in their start of the domestic championship as they’ve been defeated away to Malatyaspor in the latest round.
Andre Ayew and the lads want to challenge the top spot at the end of the campaign, however they need to stabilize their form as soon as possible.
Fenerbahce have been the best visitors last season as they suffered just two away defeats.
Goztepe v Fenerbahce: Head-to-head
Since 2000, Fenerbahce haven’t lost to their rivals and in the last 18 years they faced each other seven times. During that period, the visitors celebrated in four occasions, while their last three clashes have been pretty efficient.
Goztepe v Fenerbahce: Prediction
Goztepe are playing very well at home ground, however the visitors are strong favourites in this one. Fenerbahce should be capable of booking all three points from this one, and the hosts need to search for their first points elsewhere.
We are going to follow the tradition of their head to head clashes and we are expecting another efficient clash. The crowd should be able to enjoy at least three goals once again, for the fourth time in a row.
