Hatayspor vs Istanbul Basaksehir
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Monday, 7 November 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Yeni Hatay Stadyumu.
Basaksehir are one of the title-prospects this season in the Turkish top flight. They are placed second in the table at the moment, and are in great form. Meanwhile, Hatayspor are in the relegation zone at the moment, and despite their recent few good performances against minnows, they are considered to be one of the weakest in the competition.
In fact, of their total three wins in the Turkish top division this time around, two had come against relegation-zone teams like them.
It is also to be noted that they scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the tournament. As a matter of fact, they are one of the two squads yet to score ten goals in the Super Lig.
Meanwhile, Basaksehir need a surplus of only three points to climb level with the toppers, and of their only two losses in the tournament, one had come against the first-placed Fenerbahce.
Moreover, they easily can lay claim to have the best defense in the Super Lig this time around. From their total 11 matches so far, they let in just five goals into their nets.
Going on, they also have a poor h2h record against this rival over the years.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Basaksehir this Monday.
