Goztepe vs Kayserispor
Turkish Super Lig
Date: Saturday, 15 September 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Bornova Doganlar Stadi (Izmir).
Kayseri got off to a dream start to the new Super Lig season. They took eight points from the opening four games which is enough to place them at sky-high fourth ahead of Saturday’s trip to Izmir for the Goztepe clash.
The hosts enjoyed a scintillating run in the previous term, but look to have troubles matching it under the new manager at the start of the new season. Goz Goz lost three and won one of four games failing to score more than two goals in the process.
However, one of these wins came three weeks ago against the likes of Fenerbahce. Such success makes the following 1-0 loss away at Alanya look even stranger.
Goztepe vs Kayserispor Head-to-head
The two sides are about to take on each other for the fifth time in history.
Teams snatched a single win apiece so far as two outings ended without a winner.
Kayseri took four points from last term matches against Goz Goz even though Goztepe had a much better overall campaign back then.
Goztepe vs Kayserispor Prediction
Bayram Bektas has some very exciting names in his ranks, but his squad is yet to start producing in the final third in the new season. The former Norwich City star Cameron Jerome got his first minutes on the pitch when he came on for Tayfur Bingol to feature the final half-hour in the loss to Alanya. Can he maybe make the starting line-up here against the Anatolian Star?
Improving attacking numbers will be quite a challenge for the hosts given Kayseri’s rock-solid defense at the start of the new season. The visitors kept three consecutive clean sheets before conceding two in a shocking victory over Fenerbahce before the international break.
Tjarron Chery notched the match-winner at Sukru Saracoglu bagging his second goal of the season. The Ditch attacking midfielder will definitely be the one to keep an eye on here.
We expect the visitors to sit at the back and wait for their chances from counter attacks here. This, combined with the fact they allowed only two goals in four games so far, makes Under 2.5 goals FT look sweet at the odds of 1.75. As for the outcome, we’ll be brave enough and go for the draw at the 3.25 odds.
