Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul)
The recent loss to Konyaspor was only the fourth defeat of the season for the team from the capital. This was only their second defeat of 2020 after losing away to Fenerbahce in late January.
But no other team has been so proficient at home than the toppers. They are at the top mainly because of their almost flawless home record this season.
This upcoming tie would be overwhelming for Kayserispor who is in the relegation zone. Being so close to getting in the safe zone they need to win all remaining matches. But against Basaksehir it is easier said than done.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Basaksehir is unbeaten in their 11 previous clashes with this opposition in all competitions.
- Both sides found the back of the net in four of their last five head to head matches.
- The last time Kayserispor won this fixture in the league was back in 2011.
- The hosts have an active 4 match winning streak at this ground against Kayserispor.
- Two of those four matches also had over 2.5 goals in total.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor: Prediction
There is no way the toppers are losing against that too against one of the bottom sides. Kayseri displayed some stellar shows in recent weeks but is currently winless in two matches. They have won recently against two teams at the top five- Sivasspor and Besiktas. So they will be able to create chances in the opposition box and maybe get a goal or two. But that may not be enough to get past the hosts.
With 62 goals scored in 32 rounds, the home side is one of the top scorers in this edition of Super Lig. The away team is known as the worst defense in the competition. But they have also scored past some of the toughest defenses in the recent past. Some of their recent head to head matches also had a large number of goals. So I am backing both teams to score and a final score with over 2.5 goals.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor: Betting Tips
