Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor
Turkey – Super Lig
Date: Friday, 20 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu (Istanbul).
Istanbul Basaksehir could not hold the likes of Galatasaray last weekend as the loss to city rivals pushed them down to third place in the Super Lig standings. The battle may have been lost, but the war is anything but over as Cimbom are only a single point above at the very top of the league ladder.
Abdullah Avci’s men will be looking to rebound from the loss right away on Friday when they host the sixth-placed Kayserispor at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu. The visitors were on a horrendous streak of three straight defeats with a humiliating 0-11 goal difference along the way, bit they managed to arrest the slump last weekend. The victims were Genclerbirligi, but Marius Sumudica’s men once again shoed defensive holes allowing two goals in what ended up to be a narrow 3-2 win for Anatolian Star.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor: Head-to-head
Teams have eight wins apiece ahead of their 24th head to head encounter.
Only one of last ten H2H games between these rivals saw three or more goals scored.
Also, only one of last ten head to had ties saw both teams on the scoreline.
Basaksehir won four and drew one of last five encounters against Kayserispor.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor: Prediction
Anatolian Star showed plenty of defensive holes of late shipping two or more goals in each of last four matches in Super Lig. This will be the music to the ears of Emmanuel Adebayor who failed to find the net in last five games for Istanbul.
The value is also in backing Basaksehir to keep their net untouched here knowing that Kayserispor did not score a single goal in last three losses on the road. Furthermore, Abdullah Avci’s men won three on the trot at home without conceding once in the process. If we take the H2H tradition into consideration as well as the fact the hosts are genuine title contenders, Istanbul to win to nil should be the standout bet.
