Analysis

After starting the season with 4 consecutive losses in the league Medipol Başakşehir, have emerged as the team to beat in recent times as they have registered 5 straight wins in the league. They are currently 7th in the league with 21 points.

They have had this incredible resurgence in form, thanks to the appointment of their former captain Emre Belözoğlu as the new gaffer. One should keep in mind that these victories have all come against teams outside the top 8 and things should only get more challenging.

Altay’s start to life in the Super Lig was rather comfortable having registered 5 league wins in their opening 7 games. Things in İzmir have slowly started to crumble as they are winless in their preceding 6 league fixtures. They find themselves in 11th position with 16 points.

Istanbul Basaksehir vs Altay Prediction

The hosts have been on a path of destruction and have won 7 games in succession across all competitions, the visitors on the other hand have just 1 point from their last 6 league games. The home team should bag the result with ease.

IBFK has scored a minimum of 2 goals in their previous 7 games, while Büyük Altay are yet to register a clean sheet in the league this season, the home team should find the net at least twice.
